The person accused by Davy Fitzgerald of hurling abuse at him during last year’s championship match between Clare and Wexford has revealed himself as the Clare kit man, Niall Romer. A Kilmaley club delegate, Romer has been a frequent critic of the county board over the years and in particular the county secretary Pat Fitzgerald, Davy Fitzgerald’s father.

I had to endure criticism from an unnamed individual who was seated in the stand. I call on the Clare County Board to look into the issue,” the Wexford manager stated after his side had lost to Clare in the second round qualifier match in November in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise.
