Derrytresk handbag brawler banned6, February 2012 | By: brendan64 | 1 Comment »
The Derrytresk supporter who hit Dromid Pearses player Declan O’Sullivan with a handbag during last month’s All-Ireland club JFC semi-final has been banned from attending games for almost a year.
The CCCC has proposed a 48-week ban for the woman who attacked O’Sullivan after the ill-tempered clash between the teams, according to the HoganStand website.
The GAA’s disciplinary body is also expected to take action against a number of other supporters who became involved in the alarming scenes in Portlaoise on January 22, where cameras caught an ugly clash between the players from the rival teams.
The sanction is the latest to be levelled at the Tyrone club, who have been hit with eight suspensions and a €5,000 fine following the brawl.
Eight Derrytresk players, including Kevin Campbell, Sean Slater, Michael Robinson and Joe McKee who started the game, are set to appeal their eight-week suspensions tomorrow night at the Central Hearings Committee.
The team will will play in next Sunday’s All-Ireland final against Galway’s Naomh Padraig.
