Brady sent off as Errigal march on

Mullahoran (Cavan) 1-7 Errigal Ciaran (Tyrone) 4-15

The Tyrone champions were in the comfort zone for the entire second-half and outscored their hosts 2-9 to 0-4.

However, talk after the game centred on the arrest of an Errigal Ciaran supporter at half-time and the dismissal of World handball champion Paul Brady just nine minutes after entering the fray.

Gardaí acted after abuse was directed at the Mullahoran players at half-time while Brady received a straight red after an off-the-ball incident which saw Tyrone’s Stefan Tierney flattened.
