Joe McQuillan's Plight Yesterday Summed Up In One Brilliant Keith Duggan Line

Joe McQuillan's Plight Yesterday Summed Up In One Brilliant Keith Duggan Line
By Mark Farrelly

Let me start by admitting that if someone was going to point the finger at Joe McQuillan, given his years of refereeing Killinkere Junior D games, I'd be the first in line but yesterday it felt as though no one could have kept control of what was a most tempestuous game.

Between, punches, headbutts, trips, penalties, pulling and dragging and more handbags than you could shake a stick at, Keith Duggan perhaps sums the whole thing up best in one perfect line, in today's Irish Times.

He writes:

Referee Joe McQuillan was at times like a zookeeper who arrived at work to find all the cages open.

Have we reached the stage where we need two referees in Gaelic football? Or, God forbid, a proper definition of the tackle? Albeit that would have only cleared up about a third of yesterday's controversies.

T-minus six days until the madness resumes.
