Wicklow GAA has condemned as “unacceptable” a brawl which broke out at an underage football match yesterday.

Footage of the melée has been widely shared on social media. The fight broke out at an Under-15 final between Carnew and Kilcoole.

Adults and juvenile players can be seen shoving and throwing punches as other spectators call for the pitch to be cleared.

In a statement, the county board says the GAA's Competitions Control Committee will be investigating and taking “strong disciplinary action”.

“Wicklow GAA are aware of reports of totally unacceptable behaviour from a number of people at a game today,” it reads.

“Wicklow GAA strongly condemns all such behaviour, the CCC will be investigating the incident fully and strong disciplinary action taken.”
