John Kiely: ‘Gearoid Hegarty is being targeted by the officials’

Posted by

The Limerick manager John Kiely was talking to the press after the draw against Clare at Cusack Park and it’s fair to say Kiely wasn’t happy with how Gearoid Hegarty was treated as he got a second yellow on Sunday and was shown the line.

“The player basically just grabbed his stomach and has thrown himself down on the ground – there was no contact.

“It’s very disappointing. It was much ado about nothing. It’s a card we’ll expect to be rescinded completely. It’s right and fair for Gearoid. It’s very clear from the footage that there isn’t a yellow card there. It’s an error, and we’ll be asking for that error to be rectified.
