Cork football manager Ronan McCarthy has had his 12-week ban for breaching the GAA's training ban upheld by the Central Hearing Committee.

McCarthy had requested a hearing after his ban was proposed after his players had been found to have gathered on a beach in Youghal for a team-building exercise during Level 5 restrictions.

Last night the CHC upheld the charge of "misconduct considered to have discredited the association".

It means the Rebels boss will be suspended until May 13th, with the option of appealing the decision to Croke Park’s appeals committee.

It comes after Down manager Paddy Tally received an eight-week suspension under similar circumstances.
