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.

Since then, Cavanagh offered an update on his situation, saying: "Thanks for all the messages. Released from hospital with a bad concussion, broken nose & extensive facial injuries but could have been much worse. I'm lucky."

Cavanagh's club posted a statement to their official Facebook page after the match, saying: "Commiserations to An Mhaigh senior men's football squad and management on their very unfortunate one point defeat to Edendork in today's SFC first round match at Dungannon.

"Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Sean Cavanagh who picked up a nasty facial injury early in the match and was transported to Craigavon hospital by ambulance."
