East Kerry v Dingle match marred by pitchside brawl

Jack O'Toole

Paul Geaney and his cousin Michael Geaney put on a show in Dingle’s 4-13 to 0-12 win over East Kerry in the Kerry Senior Football Championship on Sunday but the match was ultimately marred by a pitchside brawl.

Geaney scored a hat-trick of goals for Dingle while cousin Michael added a fourth for the six-time champions in a high scoring game that also saw David Clifford and brother Paudie both receive red cards.

The match was later soured by a pitchside brawl with the incident in the Kerry senior football championship following a string of similar instances across the country over the last month.

Slaughtneil and Ballinderry Shamrocks clashed in a Derry reserve Gaelic football Championship earlier this month, Ballyholland and Downpatrick fought in an ugly fight in Division 1 of the Down GAA All County Football League while an intermediate first-round tie between Strabane and Stewartstown of Tyrone was also marred by violence last month.
