Owen Garvan's League Of Ireland Debut Ends With A Half-Time Red Card

Owen Garvan's League Of Ireland Debut Ends With A Half-Time Red Card
By Daniel Kelly Updated

Cork City continued their magnificent form in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division after a 1-0 win at home against St. Patrick's Athletic on Sunday.

A Sean Maguire goal was all that separated the teams, but the main talking point came in an incident none of the Turner's Cross crowd actually saw.

Owen Garvan, the former Republic of Ireland Under-21 captain was sent off at half-time for an incident in the tunnel.

The 29-year-old joined St. Pat's last week, and after an appearance in a mid-week friendly against Hearts, he was named in the starting lineup for Sunday's game in Cork.

Garvan's red card is only the second time he has been sent off in his career. In November 2010 he was shown two yellow cards in the space of a minute for Crystal Palace in a Championship game against Sheffield United.

After not playing a league game since March before his debut for St. Pat's, he will now miss at least one match for the SuperSaints.

Welcome to the League of Ireland, Owen!
