Any word on which player failed the drugs test and which county they are from?

Surely a third strike for Kerry would open to some huge questions.

Heard it was a player from an Ulster county in Divison 1

Which county?

It said the player was in their 30s.

Think Colm Cavanagh and McCrory are the only players on the Tyrone panel in their 30s. Don't think McCrory has played during the league yet.
For Donegal you'd have McGee and Murphy who have played this year.
Monaghan you'd have Darren Hughes, McManus and maybe Drew Wylie?

Good of you to narrow it down to around 5 players.

That's all I know. I didn't actually hear which player it was but was informed it was an Ulster based player that came from a sports journalist.

From a Div 1 county?

That would mean it's a Donegal, Monaghan or Tyrone payer according to your source.

Failing a test doesn't necessarily mean tested positive for something that enhances sporting performance. It could have been recreational.

That would mean it's a Donegal, Monaghan or Tyrone payer according to your source.

Lower league player according to the examiner today.

Just a question, if a player is banned for 'Failing a drugs test' are they still able to play club football?

No. The Irish Sports Council will give a ban, which the GAA is to uphold on all competitions against the players registration.

It gets a bit murky if you then transfer abroad as an Irish Ban on an amateur game is hardly likely to be upheld, even though the player is for all intents and purposes banned from GAA games.
