Cork forward Pat Horgan has had his red card from last Sunday's Munster SHC final against Limerick rescinded.
The Cork County Board launched a successful appeal of referee James McGrath's decision, with the GAA's Central Hearings Committee clearing Horgan of the red card and a one-match ban - meaning he is free to play in next weekend's All-Ireland quarter-final against Kilkenny.
In an incident before half-time, the referee gave Horgan a straight red card after he was seen to strike Limerick's Paudie O'Brien on the back of his helmet as they competed for possession. It was a careless swing, although the contact with O'Brien was light.
Having Horgan, the Rebels' chief free-taker and one of their most experienced forwards, on board for the Thurles tussle with the Cats is a timely boost for Jimmy Barry-Murphy's men as they look to recover quickly from the 0-24 to 0-15 loss to Limerick.
Horgan scored 0-12 in Cork's two games to date this summer, including an eight-point haul against Clare last month. He was the fourth top scorer in last year's Championship, finishing with 1-42 from five appearances. The 25-year-old also captained his county last season.
