After the game, fans ran onto the pitch to congratulate the players but pictures of them being forcably removed have been circulating online since.


One of those is Gerry McNamara, from Roslevan in Ennis.

He’s told Clare FM what happened to him.

While Killaloe man James O’Halloran’s 65-year-old father was another one of those who was taken off of the pitch by stewards in Cork

He agreed that too much force was used.

Clare FM has contacted the GAA for a statement on the incident.
