A Decision Has Been Made On Rory O’Connor’s Red Card Appeal

St Martins are through to the county hurling final, where they’ll face St Annes in a derby decider at Innovate Wexford Park…

In the first of the hurling semi-finals at Innovate Wexford Park, St Martins emerged victorious on a scoreline of 2-16 to 1-15 over Ferns St Aidans.

Unfortunately for the Martins though, Wexford inter-county hurler and young hurler of the year nominee Rory O’Connor received a straight red in their semi-final clash.

Irish television broadcaster TG4 captured footage of the two semi-final red cards:

According to South East Radio broadcaster Aidan Delaney, O’Connor’s appeal has been upheld and he will not be available to play in this Sunday’s Wexford Senior Championship Hurling final against the Annes.

Last year, Naomh Eanna hurler and inter-county star Cathal Dunbar was set to miss Naomh Eanna’s first ever county final.

However, after a lengty appeal process which was dragged to the end, Dunbar was allowed to feature in the game, where he scored 0-04 from play.

At the time of writing, it is unknown whether St Martins will take the same route as Naomh Eanna last year. Dunbar’s appeal was similarly upheld, but the Gorey town club brought the appeal to the DRA, a higher appeals authority, to challenge the decision.
