Donegal Doctor Talks About His Great Self Sacrifice In Saturday's Shemozzle

Donegal Doctor Talks About His Great Self Sacrifice In Saturday's Shemozzle
By Mark Farrelly

It was replayed 2,048 times on Sky Sports and sparked a very heated debate between Des Cahill and Joe Brolly; now the Donegal doctor at the centre of it all has spoken.

Kevin Moran was sent flying by Armagh midfielder Aaron Findon during a first half melee but the Donegal doctor has told the Irish Independent that he bears 'no ill-will whatsoever' towards his foe.

While many questioned why Moran ran onto the pitch in the first place, he says he wanted to ensure the safety of his players, come what may.

My overriding concern is always and only the safety of the players on the field, and in that particular case, my sole aim was to protect Karl Lacey.

Sounds like

Findon later apologised to Moran, who wants no further action taken:

I have had a message of apology conveyed to me today, and I have accepted it. I bear the player no ill-will whatsoever. I want that to be the end of the matter and I don't want to see any sanction against young Findon.

All I want is for the young man to learn from this experience and that it would not happen again. I wish him well in his future career.

The Donegal county chairman Sean Dunnion has also said they won't be pursuing the matter.
