Reports: Kieran McGeeney Faces Lengthy Ban For Incident With Linesman
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney is set for a 12-week ban from the sideline following an altercation with Joe McQuillan.

It has been reported by RTÉ that McGeeney was involved in a verbal altercation with McQuillan when the official was acting as a linesman during Armagh's division three win over Antrim at the end of March.

It was an ill-tempered game that descended into chaos near the end, as an Adrian Forker black card preceded the brandishing of three straight red cards in injury time.

It's reported that Armagh appealed McGeeney's suspension, but were unsuccessful.

The suspension means that McGeeney will be absent for the Ulster quarter-final against Down, and he would also miss a potential Ulster semi-final, although he would be free to assume a place on the touchline should Armagh make it to the Ulster final.

McGeeney and Armagh are sure to feel aggrieved at the length of the ban, given the fact that Davy Fitzgerald - who wandered onto the pitch to shout at the referee before barging into two Tipperary players, grabbing one by the helmet - was given an eight-week ban for his actions.
