Gone In 33 Seconds: Analysing Bryan Sheehan's Comical Red Card For Kerry
By Balls Team Updated

After the madness of Congress yesterday, it was a pleasure to return to the more homespun charms of the League today. Weird things happen during February in the GAA, but nothing was quite as weird as Bryan Sheehan's 33-second appearance for Kerry today in defeat to Monaghan. Sheehan had a very eventful cameo - he won an amazing highball, punched Kieran Hughes in the face and was sent off. It's one of the shortest substitutions in GAA history and we've analysed the whole thing, second by second, for your reading pleasure.

65:08: Sixty five minutes and eight seconds into Kerry's league game against Monaghan, Bryan Sheehan comes on for David Moran, as Kerry prepare for a kickout. 

65:19: Amazing catch from Sheehan from a Kerry kickout, snatching the ball from Kieran Hughes

65:24: Hughes did not part easily with the ball though and in the intervening scrap for the ball, Sheehan's fist makes contact with Hughes's face.

 

65:25: Hughes clutches his face in pain. It looks bad.

65:29: Ref Derek O'Mahony marches over in the direction of Hughes to have a closer look

65:41: OFF! O'Mahony has deliberated and Sheehan is sent off 33 seconds after being subbed on!

65:50: Sheehan is stunned. He has a word with the ref but it's useless.

66:42: It takes Sheehan 52 seconds to reach the sideline, which is 19 seconds longer than he was technically on the pitch for. Eamon Fitzmaurice doesn't seemed too interested in his explanation.
