          Interesting Taz. I would have said point for the 2nd fight as well.

          A bus load of us went up from Bantry to Millstreet for the 1st fight. Agreed that it wasn't an atmosphere for the feignt hearted.

            I have no idea where I got the Point from,I always had it in my head that he fought in MIllstreet first and the second was in Dublin in the Point. Youtube of second fight below sponsored by Beamish and Crawford.

                a friend of mine was about 30 feet away. there was a gang of about 10 of them...... 7 or 8 were no more than 15, all drinking pints. then there was a couple of older guys with them in their mid 20s. one of the older lads lobbed the banana. there was a cop standing 5 feet away from them the whole time, who only intervened once when one of the younger lads went to sit on the wall (east terrace, not far from the dugout). even if he missed the banana toss, plenty of others told him about it.

                they don't need to trawl through CCTV footage... they need only ask the guard who was a few feet away. they might also ask him why he did nothing about it.

                    Is that a fact?

                    If a Telegraph journalist had made the exact same claim in his paper would you have accepted his contention?

                    Just because, in our PC age, our press and our politicians try to keep these things off the radar screen, doesn't mean that they aren't there.

                          Man in court over Thomond Park banana incident
                          Updated: 15:26, Wednesday, 16 January 2013




                          A man has appeared in court in Limerick charged in connection with an incident at Thomond Park stadium, when a banana was thrown at international French defender Gael Clichy.


                          There was international public outrage after the Manchester City player tweeted about the incident following the glamour tie between the Premier League champions and Limerick City last August.


                          Kelvin Reynolds, 20, of Pinewood Avenue, Caherdavin, Limerick, appeared on two charges arising out of the alleged incident at Limerick District Court.


                          The 20-year-old is charged with engaging in threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with intent to provoke a breach of the peace on 5 August last.


                          He is also charged with assaulting Sergeant Caimin Treacy contrary to Section 2 of the Non Fatal Offences Against the Persons Act, on the same date.


                          Solicitor Sarah Ryan was assigned to represent Mr Reynolds who was granted free legal aid.


                          Ms Ryan told the court she was seeking a disclosure order and Judge Eugene O'Kelly adjourned the case until 10 April.


                          The court heard the accused replied "I'm sorry" to both charges when he was arrested and formally charged.


                          He was remanded on continuing bail until his next court appearance when a plea is expected to be entered or a date fixed for hearing.

                            hmm .. I wonder what'll happen if Limerick wins the bid to host the Gay games .. Heck I'd wonder about any irish city winning that bid. Personally I hope they do win it as I'd love to volunteer at a multi-sports championships... I've already put my name in for the World Police & Fire games taking place in Belfast this august.
