The Tyrone GAA county board is to examine video footage to try to identify who was involved in a “shocking” brawl involving up to 40 people during a game between Carrickmore and Dromore at Dunmoyle, near Ballygawley, Co Tyrone, last Sunday.
Several people were left bloodied and hurt following violent clashes that erupted among fans to the front of the stand after trouble on the field in which two players from the Carrickmore team were sent off.
Eyewitnesses said the trouble first broke out between a number of players and then spilled over to the crowd, with dozens of spectators getting involved.
A number of rival supporters fought in the stand while other spectators tried to pacify them, and others, including young children, looked on in fear.
Damian Harvey, press officer for the Tyrone GAA board, said the board would examine video footage from the game to identify who was involved in the trouble both on and off the pitch.
Mr Harvey said a “small core” of people was involved.

A shot fired through the window of grandmother Catherine McGrath’s house at 69 Priory Lawn, Ballybeg, last Sunday night could have had fatal consequences.
Catherine McGrath was at home alone and had just vacated an armchair which was left riddled with pellet marks after a shot was fired through her front downstairs window at 9.45pm.
Speaking to the Waterford News & Star from her home of over 20 years she described the frightening experience.
“It all happened so fast. I was sitting here on my own, my friend was only after going home and I was watching television and next thing there was a big unmerciful bang. I got the fright of my life.
“At first I didn’t know what it was, I went into a complete panic.”
A hole the size of a fist was blasted through her window from what she believed was a shotgun resulting in damage to the walls of her living room and armchair, which are littered with holes and scratches. Catherine luckily wasn’t injured. However, she received a small scratch to her face and arm. She feared that her 16-year-old daughter who normally sits in the bullet riddled chair, or her friend who had just left the house could have been killed if they had been sitting in the line of fire.
“IF THEY had been sitting in that chair they could have been killed.
