Players involved in Omagh brawl could face lengthy bans

Tyrone footballBy Jim O'Sullivan
FOUR of the nine Dublin and Tyrone footballers charged yesterday with offences relating to the incidents in last week's torrid League tie in Omagh are facing the threat of lengthy suspensions.

Tyrone's Owen Mulligan and Kevin Hughes, along with Dublin pair Bryan Cullen and Peadar Andrews, face additional charges under the rule which deals with "misconduct on the field" and sets out penalties ranging from eight to 48 weeks, depending on the gravity of the offence.

Eight weeks is the minimum term for discrediting the Association.

The nine players five from Dublin have been charged with bringing the Association into disrepute, as have both county committees.

The players have three days to request a personal hearing and the expectation is that the Central Disciplinary Committee will complete its investigation at the weekend.

The Tyrone County Board have also been requested to identify the individual who was involved in an incident with Dublin player Alan Brogan.

Neither team manager was available for comment and Dublin officers were not contactable. Tyrone Chairman Pat Darcy made it known that they would not be saying anything because of the fact that the Board had also been charged as well.

"We are where we are," he said. "We will deal with it as it goes along."

However, he again said that he was looking for a speedy conclusion to the affair, commenting: "Sean Kelly said at the very start that he wanted it dealt with very quickly.

"I am basically saying it should be dealt with as quickly as possible. If you leave a void, then you get a lot of press speculation and that happened at the weekend when the press themselves decided to name names."

The findings were announced by Croke Park yesterday. It named Ryan McMenamin, Michael McGee, Owen Mulligan and Kevin Hughes as having being charged under Rule 140. In addition, Mulligan and Hughes have been charged under Rule 138.

Tyrone County Board has also been charged under Rule 140 and asked to identify the official "who was involved in an incident with a Dublin player."

The Dublin players charged under Rule 140 are Bryan Cullen, Ciarán Whelan, Kevin Bonner, Alan Brogan and Peadar Andrews. Cullen and Andrews are also charged under Rule 138.

As in the case of Tyrone, the Dublin County Board have also been charged under Rule 140.

Rule 138 deals with Suspension Misconduct on the Field, setting out the various categories of offences. They include interference by a player with a match official or opposing team official, striking and second cautionable offences.

The applicable (minimum) penalties are set out. They vary from eight weeks (abusive or threatening language or conduct), to 24 weeks (any type of minor physical interference eg laying a hand on, pushing, pulling or jostling) and 48 weeks (any type of assault, for which a team can be liable to disqualification).

The specified maximum penalty is 98 weeks.

Rule 140 empowers various committees to investigate irregularities "and to suspend, warn, fine, disqualify or expel councils, clubs, teams and members" for conduct considered to have discredited the Association. The minimum suspension is eight weeks.

The CDC meeting is scheduled for next Saturday.
