KEVIN KEANE WILL be available for the All-Ireland football championship semi-final against Dublin on Sunday week after winning his red card appeal.

The Mayo footballer was given his marching orders in the closing stages of the quarter-final win over Donegal after striking Michael Murphy.

However, Keane appealed against the suspension and the GAA’s Central Hearings Committee subsequently downgraded his punishment to a yellow card during a disciplinary meeting on Wednesday evening.
