Kerry GAA officials seek meeting with CCCC

Kerry GAA officials look set to ask for a meeting with GAA disciplinary bosses after Marc O Se’s hearing is concluded on Wednesday night.

The defender is appealing a proposed four week ban, that looks likely to be handed down for his part in an altercation with Dublin’s Eoghan O’Gara after the two sides recent Allianz National Football League game at Croke Park. The Dublin player, who faces an eight week ban, has also appealed and will go before the board tomorrow night as well.

The Kerry County Board are understood to have met last night with a view to seeking a meeting with the Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) as the board have been disappointed at how Kerry have been treated by the committee in recent months. They believe that the kingdom are being hit harder for their indiscretions than any other county.

Kerry are basing their appeal on the fact that a number of players from other counties were not punished for incidents in recent games, yet themselves and Dublin have been hit hard with the latest proposed bans. It is understood that the county board officials will ask the committee to explain why both themselves and Dublin were singled out on this occasion.

In recent months, Kerry have had players such as Paul Galvin, Tomas O’Se and Barry John Keane suspended by the CCCC and there is a general consensus among GAA fans that Kerry have indiscipline problems. The county board will be anxious to prove that their problems are no greater than any other county but they seem to be singled out for particular attention.
