Players got involved in a mass brawl just before half-time in the Monaghan v Kildare game

Monaghan have regained home advantage for their NFL game against Louth this Sunday after successfully appealing against a penalty imposed by the Central Hearings Committee.

Monaghan had initially been handed a 5,000 Euro fine for their part in a brawl during a game against Kildare.

The fine was lifted on appeal but they lost home advantage against Louth.

The Disputes Resolution Authority has moved the game back to Clones and referred the case back to the CHC.

The Committee will now reconsider its penalty.

Armagh were thought to be considering dropping their appeal against a 5,000 Euro fine arising from their match against Cork after the Monaghan v Louth game had been switched from St Tiernach's Park.

It is unclear what their next move will be in the light of this latest judgement.
