Carnacon row rumbles on as fresh appeal is lodged

September 21, 2018

Carnacon's Cora Staunton accepts the Delores Tyrell Cup

Carnacon are set to appeal against the suspensions and fine handed down by the Connacht Council of the LGFA.

The reigning All-Ireland club champions successfully appealed against their explusion from the Mayo championship on Tuesday night after eight players - Martha Carter, Marie Corbett, Amy Dowling, Doireann Hughes, Sadhbh Larkin, Fiona McHale, Cora Staunton and Saoirse Walsh - left the county panel over alleged player welfare issues.

But they were subsequently fined €500 and the eight players were each handed four-week bans.

The latest appeal is expected to be formally lodged today.
