Update issued at 4.53 pm on Saturday, April 13th.
Further to our statement issued earlier (below), the club wish to confirm that it has reviewed CCTV footage of the incident that occurred at Turner’s Cross yesterday.
In the time since the end of the game last night, the club has also spoken to all parties involved in the matter.
At lunchtime, members of club staff and the Board of Management met with Mr. Jonathan O’Brien T.D., who was, for a short time, removed from the stadium last night. Having spoken to Mr. O’Brien and reviewed the CCTV footage, the club wishes to confirm that there was no breach of stadium regulations by him. This was a frank and positive discussion, and both parties are happy that the matter is now concluded to their mutual satisfaction.
In addition to the meeting with Mr. O’Brien, the club now plans to have further discussions with all key stakeholders involved in advance of our next home fixture with the intention of ensuring the best match night experience possible for our supporters.
