Sean Cavanagh posts update following shocking, violent incident in Tyrone SFC game
This sort of thing shouldn't happen.
Moy Tír Na nÓg suffered a narrow defeat to Edendork in the Tyrone SFC on Saturday night.
Edendork won by one point, but absolutely nobody is talking about the result.
Six men received red cards during a game that saw Sean Cavanagh taken away in an ambulance.
A photo emerged on social media of Cavanagh's face following the incident, and it is really nasty.
