The Disputes Resolution Authority Secretary, Rory Hanniffy BL, has released a statement confirming that last night's DRA Tribunal - comprising Mr Jarlath Fitzsimons SC, Mr Eamonn Denieffe and Mr Con Hogan - has adjourned to consider their decision on the Killoe application against their 48-week suspension and it is anticipated this will be published over the weekend. 

The DRA statement reads: 

"An application to the DRA by Killoe Emmet Óg, challenging the decision of Longford Hearings Committee to disqualify Killoe Emmet Óg from the 2019 U16 Football Championship, impose a €750.00 fine and a subsequent 48 week suspension for non-payment of the said fine, which said decision had been upheld by the Leinster Hearings Committee, was heard tonight remotely by a DRA Tribunal comprised of Mr Jarlath Fitzsimons SC, Mr Eamonn Denieffe and Mr Con Hogan.


"The Tribunal have adjourned to consider its decision and it is anticipated that a decision will be finalised and published over the weekend.
