Daly hit with four week ban

by Michelle Fortune , 11 December 2012

Dublin hurling manager Anthony Daly has been suspended for four weeks as a result of his involvement in an altercation during the Clare county minor final.

Daly was involved in an on-pitch altercation as his former side Clarecastle took on Kilmaley in the Clare county minor A hurling final in October and following an investigation he was suspended for four weeks.

Kerry's new senior hurling boss Tommy Howard – who also manages Clarecastle - was also involved in the fracas and he has been hit with an eight-week ban.

Niall Romer of Kilmaley was also hit with an eight-week ban, while fellow Clarecastle selector Stephen Sheedy will join Daly on the sidelines for four weeks.

As well as the suspensions, both clubs have been hit with €3,000 fines and have until Thursday to lodge appeals.

Daly will be hoping his suspension is dated to to the end of the investigation, which would free him up to stand on the sidelines when Dublin open their Walsh Cup campaign on January 27.

Howard, however, will see his involvement with Kerry curtailed due to the length of his suspension.
