Rory Gallagher ban lifted after DRA ruling

RORY Gallagher has had his temporary debarment from GAA activities lifted after a ruling by the Disputes Resolution Authority.

Ulster GAA had imposed the sanction back in September, but the DRA made a final ruling on Monday, communicated to parties in the following days, that ruled in favour of the former Derry, Donegal and Fermanagh boss.

Gallagher had stepped back from his role as Derry manager last May following serious allegations regarding his private life with Ciarán Meenagh taking charge of the Oakleaf footballers.

In a social media post, Gallagher’s former wife, Nicola, claimed she had been the victim of domestic violence over a period of years during their marriage.

Gallagher subsequently issued a statement through his solicitor saying the allegations against him had been “investigated and dealt with by the relevant authorities.”
