Someone Close To The Action Has Spoken About The Cavan And Armagh Brawl

Someone Close To The Action Has Spoken About The Cavan And Armagh Brawl
By PJ Browne Updated

Some light has been shed on Sunday's 'shameful scenes' at the Ulster Championship game between Cavan and Armagh.

Paula Brady, the woman who was carrying the Cavan flag in the pre-match parade has spoken to The Anglo-Celt about the incident.

She says that Ciaran McKeever, the Armagh captain, approached her and forcefully requested she move so that his side could be closer to the crowd during the parade.

The Armagh captain came up and said 'Move'. I said 'pardon?' and he said 'Move to f**k to the other side' ... If he had asked me politely, I'd have said 'certainly, no problem'.

It has happened before, we just go with the flow.

The Cavan team were supposed to be behind the Cavan flag and they came to where they were supposed to be.

Armagh weren't for moving and that's when the shuffling started.

The GAA are expected to investigate the incident.

Cavan forward Martin Dunne will be out of action for at least a month after he sustained a hand injury during the incident.
