TOM PARSONS HAS been ruled out of Mayo’s home Division 1 tie against Roscommon on Saturday week.

Parsons was sent-off for instigating a brawl in the dying minutes of Mayo’s win over Kerry in Tralee last weekend and will serve a one-game suspension for the incident.

The midfielder attended a personal hearing yesterday in Croke Park’s Central Hearing Committee but was unable to have the mandatory ban overturned.

Parsons has the option of appealing the decision to the Central Appeals Committee.

Parsons kicked a point in Mayo’s 0-15 to 1-10 victory, which was their first league win of the season.

He’s set to return for his county’s trip to Croke Park to face reigning league and All-Ireland champions Dublin on 4 March, in what will be a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland final.
