Shefflin’s red card rescinded

Kilkenny's Henry Shefflin receives a red card from referee Barry Kelly.

Henry Shefflin has been cleared of the red card he received in last month’s All-Ireland quarter-final.

Kilkenny queried his first half sending off for a second yellow card offence in the defeat to Cork in Thurles.

It was deemed by the Central Hearings Committee that last year’s hurler of the year should not have picked up the first yellow card for a flick on Lorcan McLoughlin.

Speaking on KCLR Radio yesterday, former Kilkenny star Eddie Keher said “justice had been done”.

Meanwhile, Anthony Daly last night named the same Dublin side that started the Leinster final win five weeks ago for tomorrow’s All-Ireland semi-final against Cork.

There are believed to be no major injury concerns while a number of substitutes in the win over Galway have been pushing hard for starting spots on recent weeks.

In football new, Glen Ryan has stepped down as Longford manager after five seasons.

The ex-Kildare captain had brought the county from Division 4 to 2 before being relegated this season.

They were knocked out of this year’s Championship by Wexford after a heated extra-time round two qualifier.
