Killian Lavelle has had his red card overturned ahead of Sunday’s final round Allianz Football League clash against Mayo in Castlebar.

The Clontibret defender was sent off by referee Joe McQuillan in the 48th minute of the Farney men’s loss to Tyrone in Clones last weekend for an alleged off-the-ball incident.

However, following Monaghan’s appeal to GAA’s Central Hearings Committee (CHC) last night (Thursday), the red card has been rescinded.

It leaves Lavelle free to line-out against Mayo this weekend in what is a crucial encounter for the Farney men as they look to hold on to their Division 1 status.
