Monaghan suspend McEnaney for 12 weeks

Seamus McEnaney is in his second spell at Monaghan manager

Monaghan manager Seamus McEnaney has been suspended for 12 weeks by the county’s board after breaching GAA Covid-19 protocols.

It is understood that a training session was held at Corduff GAA club on the last weekend in March.

A Monaghan statement said McEnaney admitted that this was “a serious error of judgement”.

There is a ban on collective training in the Republic of Ireland until 19 April.

Earlier on Thursday the GAA said it would investigate Monaghan for the latest breach of Covid-19 regulations.

Monaghan GAA added it would fully “fully cooperate and comply” with any investigation from Croke Park.

Last week, Dublin suspended manager Dessie Farrell for 12 weeks after a breach of Covid-19 regulations.

Several players from the six-in-a-row All-Ireland champions participated in a non-contact session.

In February, Down manager Paddy Tally received an eight-week ban after members of the county panel gathered in a large group.

The PSNI arrived at a session at Abbey CBS in Newry after a member of the public became concerned at the large group together in one area.

In the same month Cork boss Ronan McCarthy had an appeal against a 12-week suspension rejected after breaching the GAA’s training ban.

The Cork senior footballers had been found to have gathered on a beach in Youghal for a team-building exercise during Level 5 restrictions.
