The Central Hearings Committee gave the Kerry club the punishment after the brawl between Pearses and Tyrone club Derrytresk.

Originally, the Central Competitions Control Committe gave Pearses a €2,000 fine and suspended three of their players.

At a hearing last Friday, the CHC cut the original fine to €1,000 but hit the club with a three-year ban.

Talking to the Irish Examiner, Pearses chairman Mike Sheehan said: “I assume we will be appealing but we have no official recommendation yet. We have to schedule a club meeting. It does seem severe enough.”
