Two years suspension if Brady found guilty

GALWAY’S dual hurling and football star Kevin Brady could face a lengthy suspension after he has been called to appear before the GAC in Croke Park next month.

Brady, is to answer a charge that he played in a match, without proper clearance, in Birmingham, when he spent some time in the city last year. And if he is found guilty, he could be suspended for anything up to two years. Brady has recently been at the centre of a controversy over Galway manager John O’Mahony insisting that he play a senior football challenge for Galway on the day he was due to captain Castlegar in the Galway U21 hurling championship.

He plays his club football with Kilconly, and his hurling with Castlegar.

Kilkenny have named just two members of their All Ireland winning side on the team to play Dublin in the Walsh Cup Senior Hurling semi-final at Freshford tomorrow.

Kilkenny (SH) v Dublin: PJ Ryan, W Burke, E Mackey, J Ryall, R Mullally, J Tyrrell, K Coogan, P Mullally, P Tennyson, W O’Dwyer, J Maher, J Coogan, A Fogarty, C Phelan, AN Other. Subs: D Herity, M Phelan, C Hickey, G Joyce, T Drennan, P Cleere, M Rice, J Fitzpatrick, J Phelan, P Quinlan.
