DRA Make Last Minute Decision On Rory O’Connor’s Red-Card Appeal

St Martins are through to the county hurling final, where they’ll today 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.

According to South East Radio broadcaster Aidan Delaney, O’Connor’s initial appeal had been upheld, which meant he would not be available to play in this today’s Wexford Senior Championship Hurling final against the Annes.

However, after the ban was upheld by Wexford GAA and the Leinster Council, St Martins took the appeal to the DRA, an indpendent appeals authority.

It has now emerged that the DRA have upheld the decision and that O’Connor will not play in today’s Wexford SHC final against St Annes.

If St Martins are victorious, O’Connor will be available for the Leinster cub hurling semi-final clash against the winner of Ballyhale Shamrocks and James Stephens.
