THE ALLEGED BITING incident during Dublin’s draw with Donegal in Ballybofey has flared up again tonight after the CCCC proposed to suspend a Dublin player over the matter.

The All Ireland champions’ young forward, Paddy McBrearty, claimed to have been bitten during the 7 April encounter and received treatment in Letterkenny General Hospital that evening.

Donegal officials passed on the information to the referee and the Dublin medical staff at the time. And tonight, RTE have reported that the CCCC have singled out the player responsible for the alleged teeth marks.

The Dublin County Board have already confirmed they will appeal any forthcoming related ban.
