It was a night of red cards in the Dublin Senior Championship semi-finals.
Ballymun Kickhams defeated Kilmacud Crokes in the opening match in Parnell Park. Kilmacud's Ross O'Carroll was sent off for a sliding tackle on James McCarthy.
In the second game, St Vincents defeated St Judes by nine points. In the space of six second-half minutes, St Judes had two players sent off. Mark Sweeney was given his marching orders first, before goalkeeper Paul Copeland was sent for an early shower.
Copeland appeared to almost clothesline Vincents' full forward Shane Carthy outside the box, before he was given a straight red card.
44: Red card!
