Ó Sé accepts one-month ban

Star defender Tomás Ó Sé will miss Kerry's upcoming All-Ireland quarter-final after being handed a one-month ban for a striking offence during last Sunday's Munster SFC final win over Limerick.

Ó Sé clashed with Limerick forward Stephen Kelly on several occasions during the game, and one of the incidents has led to the GAA's Central Competitions Control Committee proposing a suspension for a Category 2 offence (striking with the elbow).

A statement issued by the Kerry County Board read: "Tomás Ó Sé has been notified by the CCCC that he has been charged with a Category 2 offence (striking with the elbow).

"The proposed penalty is a suspension for one month and the next game. Tomás Ó Sé is not seeking a hearing."

That means that both Ó Sé and Paul Galvin will sit out the defending champions' quarter-final encounter at the start of next month.

Galvin was given an eight-week ban for an incident involving Cork's Eoin Cadogan in the recent Munster semi-final replay.

The proposed one-month suspension was doubled for the Kingdom forward as he had served out a similar ban earlier in the year.
