The Furious Reaction To David Reidy's 'Bullshit' Red Card

The Furious Reaction To David Reidy's 'Bullshit' Red Card
By Arthur James O'Dea

Clare and Limerick found themselves reduced to 14-men in a cagey opening half to their final round match in Ennis this afternoon.

With the home side having the better of the first-half in scoring terms, Limerick, not possessing the same fluidity in attack as was in evidence against Waterford, looked a little rattled by Clare's high-octane start.

However, with the game still in the balance, both sides had a man each sent off in a series of incidents that have divided viewers. Although, few will have complaints that Limerick's substitute corner-back Tom Condon deserved less than a red-card, Clare's David Reidy seems to have been significantly more unfortunate.

Caught up in an off-the-ball incident with Limerick's Diarmuid Byrnes, much uncertainty surrounded the decision to send Reidy the same way as Condon; with many incapable of deducing what the card could have been awarded for.

Although certain quarters suggested that Byrnes would hardly have gone to ground in the fashion he did if not for a serious incident.

In the RTÉ studio at half-time, Henry Shefflin and Liam Sheedy were unanimous in their condemnation of the decision with regards to the Reidy decision.
