Moorefield fail in bid to get Cian O’Connor red card rescinded

Blow for Kildare champions

Moorefield fail in big to get red card rescinded

Cian O'Connor

Moorefield’s Cian O’Connor is set to miss Sunday’s Leinster SFC Club final against St Loman’s of Westmeath following his failed appeal to Leinster Council last night.

O’Connor, who has been enjoying a fine season, was shown red after retalitating following an off-the-ball incident against Rathnew.

Sunday’s game throws-in at Portlaoise at 2 pm
