Dublin GAA has confirmed that Dessie Farrell has been suspended for 12 weeks.
The announcement comes after the Irish Independent reported today that at least nine members of the county's senior football panel met for a training session on Wednesday morning. The session was in breach of Covid-19 guidelines.
In a statement, the Dublin GAA management committee said:
"Dublin GAA acknowledge that, following an investigation this afternoon, there was a breach of Covid-19 guidelines yesterday morning.
"The County Management Committee have suspended Dublin Senior Football manager Dessie Farrell for 12 weeks with immediate effect.
"The Dublin senior football management and players recognise that this was a serious error of judgement and apologise unreservedly for their actions."
Earlier today, the GAA said that it will "pursue the allegations" and "invoke any necessary disciplinary processes" regarding possible Covid-19 guideline breaches.
