Cork forward Orla Cronin is set to miss Sunday's All-Ireland camogie final in Croke Park, after the red card she was shown in the semi-final against Kilkenny was upheld by the Camogie Association's hearings committee.
Cronin was shown the red card for striking an opponent with a hurley and while she appealed against the decision, the referee's call was upheld.
Their ruling means a three-game ban for Cronin, for striking an opponent.
However Cork are expected to pursue the matter further to the appeals committee, and could possibly that their case to the the disputes resolution authority.
There was better news for Galway after their corner-back Dervla Higgins was cleared to take part in Sunday's final.
The red card that Higgins received in Galway's semi-final win over Tipperary was rescinded, after it was established that the referee sent the wrong player off.
