Tyrone County Board launch probe into final attacks

The Tyrone Ladies' Board has launched an investigation into separate attacks which left two individuals unconscious at the end of a county Football final.

The match referee was struck unconscious after St Macartan's beat Carrickmore in the decider at Beragh.

An official from the ladies' board was then also knocked out after being struck while trying to intervene.

Both men were stretchered off the field and the county board has wished them "a speedy recovery".

St Macartan's won thanks to a dramatic late goal.

A statement from the county board confirmed that there had been a "serious incident" involving county officials.

"The County Board roundly condemn the perpetrators of the assaults and confirm that a full investigation into the matter has been launched," continued the statement.
