Video ev­i­dence comes to the res­cue

Wicklow People - - SPORT -

VIDEO ev­i­dence is re­ported to have as­sisted St Pa­trick’s hurler Andy O’Brien in get­ting his 12-week suspension over­turned by the Wick­low Hear­ings Com­mit­tee last Fri­day evening in Joule Park, Aughrim.

O’Brien had been handed the hefty suspension by the Wick­low C.C.C. fol­low­ing an al­leged al­ter­ca­tion with lines­man Mick Owens dur­ing the S.H.C. clash with Gle­nealy in Joule Park, Aughrim on July 16.

Ref­eree John Keenan sent the tal­ented O’Brien off on a straight red card on the ad­vice of his lines­man but the video ev­i­dence proved a ma­jor help in O’Brien’s appeal against the C.C.C. rul­ing and he was free to play for St Pat’s against Kil­te­gan the fol­low­ing day where he bagged 2-06 to help them to vic­tory.

Not so for­tu­nate was Terry Healy, who failed in his bid to have his one-match ban over­turned fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent with Gle­nealy’s Gavin Weir.
