TEMPERS FLARED DURING the All-Ireland semi-final replay between Mayo and Kerry today.

At one point late on, an irate Mayo fan invaded the pitch and had to be escorted away by a number of stewards.

The incident didn’t seem to annoy some supporters however, as the individual involved was given a hero’s reception at Supermacs after the game, according to Sunday Independent sportswriter Marie Crowe.

Meanwhile, there was a similarly unsavoury moment at the end of the game, as shown in the video below, when a scuffle broke out between two fans, before a garda intervened.
