Dublin's Philly McMahon will not to appeal a one-match ban imposed on him following an incident cited in the All-Ireland final.
The Footballer Of The Year nominee vehemently denied allegations of eye gouging Kerry's Kieran Donaghy and initially sought a hearing with the Central Competitions Control Committee to appeal the decision.
But it now appears that the proposed suspension will be upheld and McMahon will miss out on Dublin's League opener against Kerry in 2016.
The decision was finalised at a meeting held in Croke Park last night and the Irish Examiner reported today that the footballer of the year nominee will take no further action on the case.
Dublin county board chairman Sean Shanley said:
He had a hearing and that's where we will be leaving it. We felt it was harsh, he was challenging for the ball with the player who was on the ground but we won't be going any further with it.
Dublin will play Kerry in the first round of the League on January 30.
