THE GAA’S CENTRAL Competitions Control Committee have imposed fines of €5,000 on both Kerry and Donegal for the row which broke out in their Allianz Football League fixture early this month.

Players clashed early in the fixture in Austin Stack Park and representatives of both sides were invited to CCCC hearings on 23 March facing the charge of ‘disruptive Conduct at Games by Players (not causing the Premature Termination of a Game)’.

The Central Hearings Committee found both sides guilty of an infraction of rule 7.2 (d) (3) and imposed the €5,000 fine on both sides.
