Penalties have been handed up following the half-time flare-up at Ballybofey

Tyrone and Donegal have been fined 5,000 Euro and Tyrone assistant boss Gavin Devlin handed a proposed eight-week ban following the half-time scuffle at the recent Ulster SFC game.

If Devlin's suspension is confirmed, he will be absent for Tyrone's opening All-Ireland qualifier on 27 June.

No players from either county have received punishments arising from the half-time disturbances.

Both county boards have the option of appealing against the punishments.

The incident occurred as both teams attempted to make their way to the dressing-rooms at half-time.

Donegal edged a 1-13 to 1-10 victory in the Ulster SFC preliminary-round game to set up a quarter-final against Armagh.
