CCCC Propose 12 Week Ban For Diarmuid Connolly Over Linesman Incident

Diarmuid Connolly

Diarmuid Connolly has been hit with a proposed 12 week for his altercation with a linesman on Saturday evening.

During Dublin’s laboured victory over Carlow in Portlaoise, the St Vincent’s clubman pushed the assistant after disagreeing with a call made during the match.

This evening, the CCCC has decided that the two-time All-Star should be banned for 12 weeks. This would see him miss out on the Leinster Championship, as well as an All-Ireland quarter-final.

However, there is another process before it is confirmed.

He may be back for an All-Ireland semi-final or the decider should Jim Gavin’s side make it that far.

However, with such a high profile and divisive incident in question, we are likely to hear more of this in the coming days of weeks.
