Cavan have indicated they may accept the €5,000 fine and suspensions proposed by the GAA following Sunday’s pre-match brawl in Armagh.

The Orchard County have already confirmed they will contest their fine and the one-match bans for Brendan Donaghy, Kieran Toner and Andy Mallon.

Cavan’s executive will meet on Friday to discuss the sanctions, which includes suspensions for Martin Dunne and Fergal Flanagan.

“Let’s be very clear: we didn’t think there is a place for this in our game or that it was right,” said Cavan PRO Declan Woods.

“We don’t condone it and we regret that it happened.”

The GAA's Central Competitions Control Committee recommended the one-game suspensions so the five players will miss their county’s next championship fixture on June 28.

Armagh await the winners of Sunday’s Ulster quarter-final between Monaghan and Tyrone, while Cavan host Westmeath in the first round of the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers.
