The news has been leaking out on Twitter over the course of the evening but in the last few minutes the Tyrone County Board have confirmed (also via Twitter) that Conor Gormley’s ‘proposed’ one-match ban has been overturned by the CHC and that, as a result, he’ll be available for selection against us:

Why the GAA bothered with this process at all is beyond me. Given other similar high profile cases of this kind in recent years it was screamingly obvious that the CCCC’s proposal was always going to get struck down. Plus ça change in the weird and wacky world of GAA disciplinary action, in other words.
