Monaghan Suspend McEnaney For 12 Weeks Following Covid Training Session

It now means four counties will be without their managers for three months.

Monaghan's senior football manager has been suspended for 12 weeks after a group training session for the team was held last month.

Seamus McEnaney has received the same punishment as Dublin GAA boss Dessie Farrell following a similar incident last week.

Monaghan GAA has acknowledged there was a breach of the Covid-19 regulations and guidelines by the team.

McEnaney has admitted that holding a training session was a serious error of judgment and has apologised unreservedly.


The news will come as a blow to the GAA who are due to announce their master fixtures calendar in the next couple of hours. 

Management teams at all levels in Laois, Offaly and Westmeath will be eager to find out how their season will be shaping up. 

It's also expected that the association will be in position to announce a provisional timeline for when club activity can resume. 


GAA president Larry McCarthy says breaches of their inter-county training ban have damaged the association. 

Monaghan today suspended football manager Seamus McEneney for 12-weeks after footage emerged of the Farney men engaged in a training session.

Dublin manager Dessie Farrell, Cork’s Ronan McCarthy and Down’s Paddy Tally have also fallen foul of the training ban.

McCarthy says work needs to be done to restore their reputation:
