Limerick's Peter Casey is free to play in the All-Ireland final against Cork after a successful appeal against the red card he picked up in the semi-final win over Waterford.

Casey was dismissed by referee John Keenan in the second half of the 1-25 to 0-17 win at Croke Park for an alleged off-the-ball head/helmet butt on Conor Gleeson.

However, the Central Hearings Committee have cleared him and he is now available for selection on 22 August.

Limerick received Keenan’s report on Monday and decided to appeal the two-game suspension that would occur.

"I haven’t seen it but I’m looking forward to seeing it," Treaty manager John Kiely told RTÉ Sport after the semi-final win.

"It just seems completely out of character for Peter, that wouldn’t be in his make-up at all as a player.

I do know that from talking to Peter that there was a clash of heads alright, yes. But nothing malicious or nothing of any significance, really.

"But, at the same time, you have to be very, very careful. Especially when you're in that position."
