Derrytresk have avoided expulsion from the All-Ireland Junior Club Football Championship final after the violent clashes which marred their semi-final win over Dromid Pearses.

Eight players from the Tyrone club have been banned however, four of whom started the match, and another four substitutes.

Three Dromid players have received bans and both clubs have been fined.

Derrytresk officials have indicated that they are likely to appeal.

Derrytresk, who were fined 5000 euros, will face Galway side Clonbur in the decider at Croke Park on 12 February.

Dromid Pearses were fined 2000 euros for their part in the fracas at Portlaoise, in which several people were injured.

The length of the bans have not yet been revealed.
