    Suspensions 2019

    Didn't know where to put this so started a new thread.

    Paul Hegarty from Harps and Ruaidhrí Higgins from Dundalk given 3 game touchline bans after the fracas at the end of the game recently,also Jamie Mcdonagh given another 3 game ban on top of what he's already served.
    Extremely harsh all round I think.......
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    McDonagh isn't harsh at all. He just outright kicked Clarke. 4 game ban is completely justified.

    100% plus he was very slow to leave the field of play after being sent off

    Journalist Gavin McLaughlin gives a forthright view.

    It certainly seems inconsistent - not least on the basis of the suspensions given out to repeat offenders last season

    Have to say, I'm absolutely baffled by this. I saw the incident in question and Higgins did absolutely nothing to warrant a ban. If I was Dundalk, I'd be looking to appeal that.

    Three-game touchline ban for Dundalk assistant coach Ruaidhri Higgins for his part in a minor schmozzle at the end of the Finn Harps game in Ballybofey recently. Same sanction for Paul Hegarty of Harps.

    Have to say i agree , it was an absolute kick with the ball yards away.
    The reaction of the crowd and the players was visceral as it was Clarkes first start back after best part of a year out injured and he went down clutching the knee.
