Wexford’s Aidan Nolan has seen his two-match reduced and will, therefore, be available for Davy Fitzgerald’s men for their All-Ireland semi-final clash with either Tipperary or Laois in two weeks time.
The HWH Bunclody club man was given a suspension for using abusive language towards Tipperary referee Fergal Horan during Leinster round-robin clash with Kilkenny. A game which ended in a draw and was enough to see both sides into the Leinster final as results went their way. According to RTE Sport, it was his second category three dismissal in 48 weeks, the first was in Wexford’s Fenway Classic game against Limerick where Nolan was sent off for a dangerous pull on Cian Lynch.
The Central Hearings Committee (CHC) deemed that the infraction against Nolan in the Super 11s tournament in Fenway Park should not count for purpose of determining whether a subsequent infraction is a repeat infraction.
In other news regarding GAA suspensions, Tyrone’s Peter Harte has been deemed clear to play in the Red Hands Super 8 game with Roscommon at Dr Hyde Park. Harte had one of three recent blacks cards rescinded which means he is now available to take his place in the Tyrone forward line on Saturday night.
