An investigation will be launched.

Laois GAA look set to launch an investigation into the nasty scenes which broke out after a senior football clash between Arles-Killeen and Killeshin on Saturday evening in O’Moore Park.

Killeshin won the game 1-17 to 0-15 after extra time, to progress in the Laois SFC, which leaves Arles-Killeen facing a relegation battle.

However, for all the good football that was played, a mass brawl a the end of the match has left a sour taste in the mouth.

A clip of the fight has been uploaded to YouTube, and you can see officials, fans, and players all involved. It was widely spread around social media afterwards.

The video footage appears to show a supporter getting involved from behind the barrier, and then dragged onto the pitch as more people get involved, and a whole brawl breaks out.

It is expected that some sanctions will be handed out by Laois officials, giving the unwelcome scenes that occurred, and but an inspection will be carried out first.
