Waterford intermediate football champions Dungarvan have been stripped of their title.

Earlier this month in the county final, Dungarvan fielded a player who was waiting on the results of a Covid-19 test. It came back positive. 

Under HSE guidelines, those awaiting Covid-19 test results are required to self-isolate.

On Wednesday evening, the county board released a statement confirming the punishment that falls under rule 7.2E of the GAA's official guide, which covers "misconduct considered to have discredited the association".

They also confirmed individual suspensions for six club members.

"Further to the investigation into matters arising from the intermediate football final and positive Covid-19 case, the Management Executive of Waterford County Board wishes to advise that the individual suspensions and the penalties of disqualification and fine for Dungarvan GAA club, have been accepted," the statement read.

"The Management Executive would like to thank the officers and members of Dungarvan GAA for their full cooperation with the investigation."

It is not yet known whether runners-up Kill would be awarded the title and promotion or whether the final will simply be annulled.
