Waterford senior hurlerTadhg De Burca’s appeal has been unsuccessful.
The GAA’s DRA panel rejected his appeal to his one-match suspension.
The debate went on until close to 1am this morning.
The decision means that the Clashmore clubman will not line out for Waterford against Cork in Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final.
WLR would like to apologise to Tadhg De Burca and his family for posting wrong information on social media sites whilst the DRA hearing was underway last night.
We are very sorry if this caused any upset to Tadhg and his family, the management team and panel and the Waterford County Board as well as supporters.
WLR were wrong to post this unsubstantiated information online and again apologise to all involved.
We wish Derek and the team the best of luck on Sunday and Up the Deise.
