Revealed: Shocking new photo from Derrytresk semi-final with Dromid9, February 2012 | By: brendan64 | 2 Comments »
An alarming new photograph has surfaced from the All-Ireland Junior Club football semi-final in Portlaoise between Derrytresk and Dromid.
The photo, published by The Irish Times, shows Dromid Pearses number 11 player Declan O’Sullivan in an altercation with a Derrytresk player at the end of the heated match.
The photograph was taken by Eddie O’Neill – a Derrytresk club member who regularly takes pictures of club games.
Earlier this week, a Derrytresk supporter who hit Mr O’Sullivan with a handbag was banned from attending games for almost a year.
The image has been released following the announcement of further penalties on the Derrytresk team, including a five-year ban from the Ulster and All-Ireland contest, due to a brawl with Dromid players at the semi-final on January 22.
Players, pundits and politicians have expressed their surprise at the numerous punishments handed down to the Derrytresk squad.
