Cork camogie manager Matthew Twomey says they will be appealing the suspension handed down to Ashling Thompson ahead of Saturday’s All-Ireland semi-final against Waterford.

Thompson was red-carded after her side’s defeat to Tipperary and the decision was upheld by the Camogie Association’s Transfer Hearing and Disciplinary Committee last week.

It means Thompson would miss the All-Ireland final should the Leesiders win on Saturday and, speaking to, Twomey says they will be appealing the decision.

“At present she’s suspended for two matches, there is an avenue open for us to appeal that, which obviously we have to do,” said the manager.

“Any more than that I don’t know, it’s up in the air a bit, we just have to see how that process goes and hopefully have her available for the Waterford game.

“She’s been outstanding, her attitude has been spot on. She had a bit of a blip against Tipperary, a pricey blip to be honest.

“We’re down Orla Cronin, from last year Pamela Mackey, and then Ashling on top of that would be a huge loss, we’re going to do what we can, but as we stand at the moment it doesn’t look good.”
