Replying To Fairplayalways:  "thanks you Brolly from Monaghan...I think you have nailed it...his sending off was definitely seconds..I think it was 20....anyway I have started a good debate...Tommy Walsh from Kilkenny has to be one of the luckiest men going..swinging the hurl at the Tipp player I think it was and hit Brian Gavin instead...Gavin didnt send him off (not sure if he even got a card but I stand corrected on that) as Gavin later said "sure he wasnt swinging the hurl at me"...now how about that..or another strange sending off this time came in a league match between Kilkenny and Wexford I think it would have been late 1980's again..Wexford had a huge lead at half time...Kilkenny came back in 2nd half as they would...Liam Fennelly soloed through and Harry Ryan was crying out for pass as he was unmarked and Fennelly didnt pass..they clashed over the incident and from memory the referee put off Harry Ryan for hitting Fennelly (he wasnt taking off by the manager at the time but was sent off)..anyone remember that incident..I heard it live on radio when life was very simple..."
In the old wexford park.. the two of them boxed it out in the tunnel at half-time, clara and ballyhale played in that years county final and were still fighting that winter.
Kilkenny got bet in the all ireland final the next September and they say that Kevin fennelly( of course this is not true ) let in soft goal so a clara man won't lift the liam Mccarthy cup

what year was it so?..Kilkenny didnt loose too many all Irelands...so it must have been a league match in 1985-6 league or 1986-87 league as Tipp and Galway and Antrim contested the 88/89 finals...

Replying To cuchulainn35:  "yes Keneally from Kerry should have seen red - after 10 seconds. It was the worst act ever, because he planned to take Murphy out of it - so he says in his book

But Forker, ( most Armagh supporters )say it was harsh yesterday - but this lad has serious issues, how many reds, yellows, blacks .... it can't all be bad luck or the referee's fault.... he odds on favourite to be sent off in every game..."
A lot of them Maghery lads are pure mad. Always fighting. Nutcases.
They should carry Government Health Warnings.
