Tipp Club Condemn Treatment Of Referee Following Quarter-Final Defeat

Toomevara GAA club has issued a statement condemning an attack on the home of referee Philip Kelly following the weekend's Tipperary SHC quarter-final loss to Kiladangan.

The Nenagh Guardian reported on Wednesday that Kelly had confirmed to them that his house was egged and that he also received "unwarranted text messages" on Sunday morning.

In a statement released by the club's senior management team and players on Thursday evening, it was said:

"The Toomevara Senior management and panel of players want to wholeheartedly condemn and distance ourselves from the unsavoury actions perpetrated against referee Philip Kelly in the early hours of Sunday morning last.

"We hope that the reputation of the Toomevara Senior players and all associated with the team has in no way been tarnished by this distasteful incident.


"On all our behalf we want to send our best wishes to Philip and his family at this difficult time."
