Too often the wheels of justice in the GAA move slowly, and justice delayed is justice denied. Thankfully, this weekend it seems as if some elements of last Sunday’s controversies involving Armagh and Galway have been resolved.

Seán Kelly acted with incredible restraint during the fracas at the end of normal time, but was put on death row for next weekend’s All-Ireland semi-final. He did not deserve that and his gesture in immediately shaking hands with Aidan Nugent after both were sent off by David Coldrick said a lot about the man.
