Conor Gormley’s one-game ban has been overturned
The Tyrone defender will now be free to face Mayo on August 25.
On Tuesday night, Tyrone defender Conor Gormley was hit with a one-game ban for his altercation with Monaghan’s Dessie Mone during their All-Ireland quarter-final. Tyrone immediately declared they would appeal that decision.
Now, just 48 hours after the ban was imposed, Gormley has had it overturned.
The incident, which you can see here, was highlighted on TV after the game and while Martin Penrose saw red for his punch on Mone, Gormley was hit with a retrospective ban this week for his earlier tangle with the Monaghan man.
The Tyrone County Board have confirmed that Gormley is now free to face Mayo in the All-Ireland semi-final.
Tir Eoghain CLG can confirm that the proposed ban for Conor Gormley has been overturned by the CHC and he will be available v Mayo

It is understood that Penrose’s ban remains in place and that he will miss the Croke Park clash.
