Rory Gallagher is free to resume his GAA coaching career following a successful appeal to the Disputes Resolution Authority (DRA).

The independent arbitration body has found in favour of the former Derry manager after he brought a case against an Ulster Council judgement which barred him from coaching teams.

“Our award will declare invalid the decision of the Respondents to impose debarment on the Claimant and to refuse the appeal taken by the Claimant against that decision,” the DRA confirmed.

Last September, Ulster GAA said that the Fermanagh man had been “temporarily debarred, without prejudice, from the GAA until the Ulster GAA Safeguarding Panel conclude their work.”
