A Dublin player has been singled out after the Central Competitions Controls Committee (CCCC) held an investigation into the alleged ‘biting’ incident on Patrick McBrearty of Donegal in the recent league game.

The CCCC has proposed a suspension for a Dublin footballer but it is learned that the Dublin County Board has confirmed they will be appealing the proposed ban.

The investigation was launched by the CCCC in Croke Park after the Donegal medical team made the complaint to referee Padraig Hughes and his replacement, Michael Duffy, after the recent clash between the counties in MacCumhaill Park on Sunday, 7th April.

McBrearty was treated for the ‘injury’ before half-time and again at the end of the match before being treated further in Letterkenny General Hospital.

The Donegal officials informed the referee at half-time and again at full-time and also invited the Dublin medical officer to witness McBrearty’s injury.
