THE Clare defender who was marking Kerry’s Paul Galvin in Sunday’s controversial Munster championship clash admits that the proposed six-months ban handed out on the All-Ireland winner was ‘a bit harsh.’
But the Kilrush clubman John Hayes refused to get involved in appealing to GAA chiefs to relax the sentence on the Finuge forward.
Galvin is facing a summer on the sidelines following his bust-up with referee Paddy Russell after he was booked for an altercation with a Clare man moments earlier.
However Banner defender Hayes admitted: “Six months was probably a bit harsh. Three months, would have be sufficient I think.”
But he wouldn’t be writing to Croke Park in an effort to change the ban: “No I wouldn’t. I don’t think it would be my place to interfere with the process.”
