Tipp Selector Knocked Out Cold And Taken To Hospital After Altercation With Clare Player

Tipp Selector Knocked Out Cold And Taken To Hospital After Altercation With Clare Player
By Gavin Cooney

Tipperary's Division Two clash with Clare has been overshadowed by an altercation between Tipp selector Shane Stapleton and a Clare player.

14 minutes into the second half, an altercation erupted by the sideline, which ended with the referee brandishing a red card to Clare's Jamie Malone for allegedly pushing Tipperary selector, Shane Stapleton. Eyewitnesses told Balls that they did not believe it was intentional. As Stapleton fell over, he hit his head on the concrete at the front of the stand, and was knocked out cold.

He got back to his feet, but minutes later was seen lying on the ground. He was attended to by medical personnel and then brought by ambulance to University Hospital Limerick. Tipperary County Board have confirmed to Balls that he was fine when brought to hospital, and is under good medical care.

The game itself finished level, at 0-11 points apiece, with Conor Sweeney kicking seven points for Tipp in the absence of Michael Quinlivan, who went off injured in the first-half.
