Tipp U21 Star Has Red Card Rescinded Following Appeal

Tipperary U21 star, Mark Kehoe is free to play in the All Ireland final following a successful appeal to have his red card from the semi-final overturned. 

Tipperary stunned Galway in the Gaelic Grounds last week, beating the Leinster champions on a scoreline of 3-17 to 1-17.

Kehoe was one of the stars for the Premier County and contributed this fine goal to their cause. 

However the Kilsheelan-Kilcash was later dismissed by referee, Seán Cleere for a challenge on the Galway goalkeeper, Éanna Murphy in a move that outraged Tipperary fans and management.

It was announced late last night that following a hearing, Kehoe’s red card has been rescinded and he is now free to play in the All Ireland final against Cork on Sunday week.

The two sides have already met this season with Cork cruising past Tipperary in the Munster final.

The All Ireland Final will take place on Sunday 26th August at 5.30pm at the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick with the late throw-in due to the Papal Mass taking place earlier that day.
