Kerry's Peter Crowley has accepted an eight week suspension after he sprayed water at a Dublin player during the All-Ireland final. The injured Laune Rangers man was acting as a 'maor uisce' on the day, with Crowley currently recovering from a cruciate ligament injury.
While the incident was missed by most onlookers everyone else at the time, footage later surface on social media that appeared to show Crowley squirt water at a Dublin forward as they ran down the sideline in possession of the ball. It was also mentioned in referee David Gough's match report.
He was charged under rule &.2c, Category 11A, which prohibits misconduct by an official involving physical interference. While Crowley is a member of the Kerry panel, he would have been considered as a team official on the day of the final.
Monaghan's Darren Hughes was charged with a similar offence when acting as a team official during Monaghan's clash with Fermanagh earlier this year.
Crowley has now accepted the ban, meaning he will not be on the line for tomorrow's All-Ireland final replay. However as he is currently injured, the ban will have little impact on his playing prospects.
