Dublin County Board CEO John Costello claims that Diarmuid Connolly was struck a number of times before one of this year’s championship games.

In one of our championship games this summer one of our players – (no prizes for guessing who!) – Diarmuid Connolly –  was struck about six times before the ball was even thrown in to commence the game.Okay, they were not Mike Tyson haymakers he was hit with but, nevertheless, each blow was an infraction of the rules and worse still, happened right under the gaze of one of the referee’s linesmen.
