Donal Moloney will be prohibited from being on the sideline for Clare’s Munster senior hurling final against Cork.

His two month ban has been upheld by the Central Hearings Committee. On Saturday he and David Reidy travelled to Croke Park to appeal their respective bans, while Reidy was successful in getting his suspension rescinded the Joint Manager was not.

Carlow’s Paud O’Dwyer was the referee in Clare’s two point win over Tipperary in Semple Stadium in this year’s provincial campaign and Moloney was mentioned in his report. This included linesman Johnny Murphy’s account of numerous incidents involving the Scariff man which detailed contact with the Tipperary management and Murphy himself.

It has been reported that Clare County Board will appeal the decision of the initial appeal. Such a move will not take place until after the Munster final.
