Waterford's Austin Gleeson is free to play for Waterford in the All-Ireland Hurling final against Galway.
Déise fans had an anxious wait for the referee's report from Sundays All Ireland semi final.
It was reported that referee James Owens informed the Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) that he was happy with how he officiated Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final at Croke Park.
This means the Mount Sion hurler will not face any retrospective punishment despite appearing to interfere with the helmet of Cork’s Luke Meade.
The decision comes after Gleeson’s team-mate Philip Mahony claimed Owens had addressed the matter at the time.
“Obviously, Conor is going to be a massive loss,” he said.
“The one with Austin, it happened right beside me and the referee, I’m fairly sure, told Luke Meade to put back on his straps. Some of the lads might say it looks worse slowed down, but I was right beside it and there was nothing in it.
“Because there was so much controversy over Adrian Tuohy and obviously Tadhg’s [de Búrca], I remember at the time the helmet came off I was worried for a second, but I was right on the scene and there was nothing in it.
"It’s a contact sport, these things are going to happen. If they start pulling up every time a helmet comes off, I think there’s going to be a lot of hassle over it.
"I’m sure, if you look at every game up and down the country, whether it be club or county, helmets come off. You see the hitting in it. I wouldn’t be worried about it.”
