Galway Defender Shown Red Card In Case Of Mistaken Identity

There were just over three minutes of normal time to play in Sunday's All-Ireland camogie semi-final between Galway and Tipperary when referee Ray Kelly showed Dervla Higgins a red card.

The Galway corner back looked astonished. She had good reason to be so, as it appears to have been a case of mistaken identity.

Following the four-point victory for Galway, RTÉ cameras identified the incident which seems to have resulted in the card. Though, it appears Galway number six, Emma Helebert, was the culprit, rather than their number four Higgins.

While laying on the ground, Helebert appeared to swing her hurley and strike a Tipperary player.

"Certainly, Dervla is adamant that it wasn't her," Galway manager Cathal Murray told RTÉ.

"I just hope the RTÉ cameras can clear that up for us.

"I thought Dervla was having a super game. I just hope that red card is rescinded, and I hope it is a case of mistaken identity."
