The Central Competitions Controls Committee (CCCC) has proposed a suspension for a Dublin footballer accused of biting an opponent during the recent Allianz League clash with Donegal.

THe CCCC had been investigating reports that Paddy McBrearty had been bitten on the shoulder by a Dublin player.

The Dublin County Board has confirmed they will be appealing the proposed ban.   

The All-Ireland champions, who were relegated to Division 2 following the Ballybofey encounter on 7 April, informed the referee at half-time and Dublin medical staff after the game, of a wound to McBrearty, which is understood to be the result of an alleged bite.

Under-21 star forward McBrearty then had the wound checked out in hospital that night.
