Rogue Sprinkler Causes Chaos During UCD Vs Shelbourne Game

Rogue Sprinkler Causes Chaos During UCD Vs Shelbourne Game
By PJ Browne

UCD and Shelbourne played out a scoreless draw at Belfield on Monday night.

During the second half, the game was delayed for eight minutes when a sprinkler started spraying water onto the pitch.

The players left the pitch while Tony Sheridan, a member of the UCD Bowl ground staff, attempted to shut off the water.

He eventually did so with the aid of a wheelbarrow only to see another nearby sprinkler go off.
