BOTH CIAN Lynch and Conor McManus’ red cards have been overturned after a meeting of the Central Hearings Committee on Thursday evening.
Lynch of NUI Galway was given his marching order at the end of last Saturday’s Fitzgibbon Cup final after an alltercation with Bryan O’Mara of UL.
NUIG lost the game even though they led by three points at the time.

The ban would not have ruled him out of inter-county battle with Cork on Sunday, but the institution were keen to appeal the decision as he would have been given a one-match suspension
Referee Fergal Horgan's decision has now been overturned.
In last Saturday’s Division 1 clash in the Athletic Grounds Monaghan's McManus was given his red card for an off the ball incident with Armagh's Aidan Forker. The game finished in a draw even though Monaghan were five points up
The red was overturned when video evidence cleared the footballer of any wrongdoing. He will now be able to feature against Kerry in Inniskeen on Sunday
