Four counties have been handed fines of €5,000 each over incidents in the recent All-Ireland Football qualifiers.

Longford and Wexford received the punishment after unsavoury scenes in their clash on 13 July.

Cavan and Fermanagh have also been sanctioned for similar scenes in their encounter on the same day.

The Breffni County did seek to have their fine commuted, but were unsuccessful. However, selector Anthony Forde did have his eight-week ban overturned.

Fermanagh are set to appeal the suspension of player Sean Quigley, with Wexford also to contest the one-match ban handed to David Murphy. Along with Longford, both counties will be appealing the €5,000 fine.
