Tyrone’s Conor Gormley has been cleared to line out for his county in their All-Ireland semi-final against Mayo next week after winning an appeal against a retrospective suspension.
Gormley had been handed a one game by the Central Competitions Control Committee after a half-time altercation with Monaghan’s Dessie Mone during his side’s quarter-final victory at Croke Park.
Television replays of the incident did appear to show Gormley raise his hands but were far from conclusive and as soon as the decision to ban the Carrickmore St Colmcille’s clubman was announced, Tyrone signalled their intention to appeal.
That appeal was heard by the Central Hearing Committee on Thursday evening and they overturned the ban, ensuring that the influential defender will be available for the semi-final clash with Mayo at Croke Park.
