Galvin Set to Escape after New Ref Clash


Byline: JACKIE CAHILL and PAUL KEANE

KERRY star Paul Galvin looks set to escape disciplinary action following an incident with referee Rory Hickey at the end of last Sunday's National Football League clash with Dublin. TG4 cameras captured Galvin appearing to aim a right-handed swipe at the Clare whistler, who had overturned an original free given in the Kingdom player's favour.

Hickey could yet include the incident in his official match report submitted to Croke Park after he waved a warning finger at the 2009 Footballer of the Year immediately after the flashpoint.

Hickey turns around to face Galvin and gestures with his left hand towards the player but does not appear to note the incident in his book. Sources close to the referee have indicated that he is unlikely to include the incident in his official report but he could yet be asked to review video evidence by Croke Park.

A refereeing source said: 'I wouldn't have made much more of it than Rory did. Okay, he might be asked by the committee what he did make of it on video evidence but if he thinks that he has dealt with it at the time, that's the end of it.

'It should also be stated that this is only because it's Paul Galvin and if it was anybody else, it wouldn't get half the attention. People wouldn't even see it as much and to make more of it would be unfair on him at the moment.' Galvin made front page news recently following an incident with a pupil at St Brendan's college in Killarney, where he is based as a teacher. …
