The Leinster Council has proposed bans of up to a year for players involved in a recent fight at an intermediate club hurling clash between Naomh BarrΓ³g of Dublin and Wexford's Oulart-The Ballagh.

The scenes took place in Parnell Park on the 12th of November.

Naomh BarrΓ³g who won the game after extra time and penalties are due to face Bray Emmets in a provincial IHC semi-final in Aughrim on Saturday.

It's also believed a penalty has been recommended for at least one supporter.

At the time of the incident, the chairperson of Leinster GAA Pat Teehan moved to condemn the actions.

He said: "We play hundreds of games every weekend in a spirit of enjoyment for both players and spectators and unfortunately we get isolated incidents which are rightly highlighted in the media and elsewhere because they have no place in our games.

"We must deal them in as harsh a manner as we can, but also in a fair manner"
