Kilmoyley have apologised to Paul Galvin for the astonishing fracas that took place during the Kerry county hurling final.
As the second half of the game involving Kilmoyley and Galvin's club Lixnaw was about to start, Kilmoyley's vice-chairman, Paddy O'Sullivan, saw fit to invade the pitch armed with a hurl, and swung for the four-time All-Ireland winner, reportedly catching him on the side of the head.
Mr. O'Sullivan was subsequently escorted off the pitch by officials. The game ended in a draw with the replay set for this Saturday.
Now, Kilmoyley club secretary John Nolan has said that the club 'sincerely regrets' the incident.
Kilmoyley sincerely regrets the incident that happened at half time in Sunday's county final and will be co-operating fully with any investigation of the county board
The pitch invader, Mr. O'Sullivan has yet to offer his take on the matter but it is anticipated he will be called to the Kerry County Board's upcoming hearing on the matter.
Gardai in Tralee told the Kerryman that they had received no complaint and were not investigating the matter.
