DONEGAL County Board will “definitely” appeal the €7,500 fine handed to both them and Kerry for the scenes that marred last weekend’s Allianz National League encounter in Austin Stack Park.

It is expected that the Kerry County Board will also appeal the hefty fine dished out by the CCCC on Tuesday night.

Speaking to the Donegal Democrat newspaper, Donegal chairman Sean Dunnion made it clear they would not be accepting the fine lying down.

“We were expecting a fine but nothing as near as severe as the €7,500 that has been handed down and we will definitely be appealing and asking for a reduction,”  said Sean Dunnion.

There is no word as yet if Donegal will appeal Neil McGee’s one match ban. The full back received a ban for appearing to cause damage to Alan Fitzgerald fingers.

There were a number of melees that littered the match particularly in the first half. Kerry’s Alan Fitzgerald and Donegal’s Leo McLoone both received their marching orders during the game.
