Those involved in a brawl at an underage GAA match in Wicklow should be banned from the sport for at least five years, a former footballer says.
Ray Silke says the scenes at an under-15s game over the weekend were "totally unacceptable".
A video of the scenes - from Saturday's game between Kilcoole and Carnew - has been widely shared online.
The video appears to show a number of adults involved in the fighting.
In a statement, Wicklow GAA said: "Wicklow GAA are aware of reports of totally unacceptable behaviour from a number of people at a game.
"Wicklow GAA strongly condemns all such behaviour, the CCC will be investigating the incident fully and strong disciplinary action taken."
Ray Silke - former Galway footballer, All Ireland winning captain and secondary school teacher at Coláiste Iognáid - spoke to Newstalk Breakfast about the scenes seen over the weekend.
He said: “I think it’s horrible to watch.
“I’d say there’s a lot of very embarrassed people by their behaviour - if they’re not embarrassed they should walk away before they’re banned. It’s totally unacceptable.”
Ray said he does believe such scenes aren't common at GAA matches.
He observed: “I won’t say it doesn’t happen… but it’s exceptionally unusual in my opinion for adults to go onto the field of play where children are involved.”
However, he said "anybody who is involved in GAA" will be embarrassed to see such incidents happenings.
He believes anyone involved should take personal responsibility for their role, but also accept whatever consequences are decided on following the investigation.
He said: “I wouldn’t ban the clubs, but I think the people that can be identified in that video clip should be banned from the GAA for a minimum of five years, and maybe also a fine for the club.
“You can’t allow [these things] to happen: it’s absolutely unacceptable, and just terrible stuff.”
