Well-Known Wexford Referee Given Nine-Month Suspension

The Wexford CCCC have come down hard on the people involved in a brawl that forced a Senior Hurling League match to be abandoned of late. 

The meeting of Shelmaliers and St James at Shel’s local ground, Hollymount, was called to a halt ten minutes from time by referee Declan Dennehy.

According to the HoganStand, “a mass brawl ensued after a mentor from each team got embroiled in a row before players, mentors and supporters from both sides became involved.”

Following the CCCC’s investigation, they have handed down a nine-month ban to St James’ club man, former inter-county footballer and well-respected referee, Johnny Doyle.

Mentors Darren Shiggins (Shelmaliers) and Michael Walsh (St James) were also given six-month suspensions, while Shelmaliers player Ronan Kavanagh was handed a one-match suspension.

Interesting times lay ahead as all parties concerned can appeal their suspensions.
