The GAA’s Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) have hit Kerry’s Marc O Se and Dublin’s Eoghan O’Gara with long bans following the recent Allianz National Leagur clash between the sides.
O Se has is understood to be facing a four-week suspension and O’Gara could be hit with an eight-week ban as a result of an incident between the pair in injury time at the end of the league game. Both players are seeking a meeting with the Central Hearings Committee in Croke Park next week.
The ban for O’Se would be a major blow to Kerry as the player had been showing excellent form at full back for the county in the early stages of the season. The kingdom have had plenty of issues with discipline in recent years and Barry John Keane has already been hit with a two month ban arising out of the league opener with Cork.
Dublin target man O’Gara, was one of the finds of the season for Pat Gilroy in 2010 and he will be anxious to have the player available as the blues march towards the league title. It would be a bitter blow to either camp where they to lose a player of such ability this early in the year.
