Referee chases stone throwers


THE most exciting moments of yesterday's series of matches in the Dublin St Vincent de Paul football tournament happened off the pitch during the St Oliver Plunketts-St Mary's clash at Martin Savage Park.

The players on the field presented no problem for referee Harry Lambe but stone-throwing vandals on the nearby railway line did.

Lambe could not take any more of the stone-throwing and in the interests of safety stopped the match to chase the attackers down the railway line. The match finished with the locals in front by 2-8, 1-7
