Ardara argued that Eddie Brennan, a Sligo county panellist, should not have been allowed transfer from his native Drumcliffe to Letterkenny last March, because he was a student at the Donegal IT. But the County Board upheld Letterkenny's argument that Brennan qualified to transfer because he is living and working locally.
