GALWAY’S ALL-IRELAND hopes have been boosted by the news that Dervla Higgins has been cleared to play in Sunday’s senior camogie decider.

The Athenry defender was controversially shown a straight red card for an off-the-ball incident in the semi-final victory over Tipperary.

But RTÉ’s match footage later showed that it was a case of mistaken identity and that referee Ray Kelly had sent off the wrong player. 

Higgins was due to serve a one-match suspension, ruling her out of Sunday’s showdown with Cork, but her ban was overturned on appeal on Tuesday evening.
