The GAA's Central Disciplinary Committee has handed down a four-week ban (including the next game in the competition) to the Killeeshil clubman, ruling him out of the June 18 qualifier.

Hughes received a straight red card for throwing a punch at Liam Hinphey during the Ulster SFC quarter-final defeat to Derry last Sunday.

Donegal full back Paddy Campbell will be available to play in Sunday's Ulster SFC quarter-final against Down, despite his four-week ban for the straight red card he earned in the National League Division Two final replay loss to Louth.

He will only miss Donegal's opening game of the 2007 League.

Fitness coach John McCloskey will be forced to watch Armagh's next three championship games from the stands after picking up a suspension arising from an incident in the Orchard county's Ulster SFC quarter-final replay win over Monaghan. Armagh next face Fermanagh on Sunday week.

Bernie Murray, a member of Monaghan's backroom team, has also been barred from the pitch enclosure for two games. Monaghan are bound for the qualifiers.

Meath wing forward Peadar Byrne is out of his side's June 18 qualifier due to a month-long suspension. He was sent off for lashing out at Rory Stafford in last weekend's Leinster SFC defeat by Wexford.

There were also bans for Longford hurler Mark Cassidy (eight weeks) and Wicklow footballer Wayne Gorman (twelve weeks).
