Dublin forward Diarmuid Connolly is training with the rest of the panel despite being suspended.
The St Vincent’s forward was hit with a 12 week ban for shoving a linesman during the Boys in Blue’s Leinster SFC quarter-final victory over Carlow.
The rules state Connolly is barred from “all functions and privileges of the association” but Connolly continues to train with the Dubs.
The Star report that the GAA are unable to properly police the ban, while Connolly will be prevented from lining out for the Dubs in any kind of game, there is no way to stop him from taking part in training.
"Diarmuid is around, but not around for everything and I think he's on his own programme as well," Jonny Cooper told eir Sport.
"He's involved in the training aspects, as in the on-field things. He wasn't around for the last weekend that we were training, for example.
"I don't know what he was doing, whether he was away with work or whatever. I don't know where he was.
"But then he's on his own training programme with gym-based stuff and obviously keeping up his own conditioning. He's obviously not going to get any game time if we are to progress so it's just about trying to stay up at that level."
