MAURICE SHANAHAN WILL serve a one-match ban after an appeal to have his recent red card overturned was thrown out by the Central Hearings Committee (CHC).

The 2015 All-Star saw red in Waterford’s defeat to Cork after he was judged to have struck Dean Brosnan with his hurley.

Shanahan was noticeably aggrieved by referee Barry Kelly’s decision, prompting Waterford to take their case to the CHC.

“We’d feel it merits an appeal anyway,” Déise boss Derek McGrath said on Tuesday.

But the CHC ruled that Shanahan did “[strike] with the hurley with minimal force,” upholding the charge against him and the ban.

The Lismore man will now miss the final round of Division 1A games which sees Waterford travel to face Clare in Cusack Park on Sunday.
