The Dublin county board certainly lost no time in taking punitive action in the wake of what is regarded as a serious breach of the current restrictions governing collective training at inter-county level.

Just a matter of hours after it became known that several members of the reigning All-Ireland champions squad had participated in a full-scale work-out at Malahide, the board slapped a 12-week ban on manager Dessie Farrell.

In his first term in charge last year, Farrell guided the Dubs to their sixth successive All-Ireland title.
