Ugly scenes broke out during the parade at the Athletic Grounds

Three Armagh players and two from Cavan have been handed one-match bans following the pre-match scenes that marred the Ulster SFC quarter-final tie on Sunday last.

Armagh's Andy Mallon, Brendan Donaghy and Kieran Toner and the Breffni duo of Fergal Flanagan and Martin Dunne have all been banned for the incident as the teams lined up for the parade at the Athletic Grounds.

Both county boards have been fined €5000. 

Armagh GAA is expected to appeal the decision.

A Cavan spokesperson said the county board had not had time to discuss a possible appeal, but that the board had not previously indicated it would appeal, and that it could not condone what had happened.
