The Kerry County Board says it is waiting for the referee's report before deciding what course of action to take following a violent incident in the county championship hurling final in Tralee.

As players and officials made their way onto the field for the start of the second half of the Kerry county decider between Lixnaw and Kilmoyley, Paul Galvin was confronted by a man wielding a hurley.

The man was later escorted from the pitch by stewards.

Galvin was uninjured and played on, with the game eventually ending in a draw.

Galvin won four All-Ireland titles and seven Munster titles during an 11-year career with the Kerry footballers. He retired from inter-county competition last year.

He plays football for his local club Finuge and hurls for Lixnaw.
