Down Football Boss Has Suspension Shortened

He can appeal his ban before the Central Appeals Committee.

Down senior football manager Paddy Tally's had his suspension for discrediting the association reduced from twelve to eight weeks.

The twelve-week ban was handed down by the Association after the Down squad gathered at Abbey CBS in Newry last month - going against the GAA's ban on collective training during the Level 5 lockdown.

The ban was reduced after last night’s Central Hearings Committee meeting and Tally can appeal his two-month ban before the Central Appeals Committee.

An eight-week suspension would see Tally miss Down’s three group fixtures in Division 2 of the Allianz League.
