Although quick to pay tribute to Aughawillan after last Sunday’s Connacht Quarter-Final, Tubbercurry manager Willie Gormley nevertheless strongly questioned the dismissal of player Brian Morahan.
Morahan received a black card 15 minutes into the second half but to the surprise of everyone, Galway referee James Molloy then brandished a red card.
Nobody in the Press box had any record of Morahan receiving a yellow card before that but it is believed that the referee told Tubbercurry officials that the half-forward had already being booked.
Speaking of the incident, Gormley said “Brian doesn’t remember getting a yellow card and I don’t think anyone saw him get one and so we were shocked to see when he got the red.
“When the linesman checked his book, he just had two lads down for yellow cards and Brian wasn’t one of them. So I was surprised when I heard the referee say he definitely gave him a yellow card. I would like to see it again.”
