Best of luck to Aaron Gilmour & Phillip Brady in the Ulster final.
With the Armagh Tyrone game last weekend having 5 players sent off after the one incident. It’s time to recall that ourselves and Blayney still hold the (dubious) record of 6. Let me take you back to May 1991. Before Blanket Defences, warm ups so complicated they could give you motion sickness just looking at them and the year Harry Potter turned into a wizard.
In an Owen Ward Cup game in Blayney, Francie Murphy sent off Peter Ward, Franky Wright and John McSkeane from Ballybay along with Phil Brady, Paul O’Connor and Syd Connolly from Blayney. The 6 then retired to the sideline and shared a few cigarettes!
An interesting post script to this is that Syd Connolly’s real name is Ciaran but Francie wrote down Syd so when the County Board investigated, he got off on a technicality. 🤣
