Clare and Tipperary played out a draw at Cusack Park Ennis on Sunday in hard weather conditions.

However matters on the pitch were overshadowed, with Tipperary selector Shane Stapleton taken to hospital following an incident that saw Clare's Jamie Malone sent off in the second half.

Team-mate David Tubridy was shown a black card by the referee for remonstrating with officials.

Stapleton was later taken to hospital after the game as he hit his head on concrete, close to the dug-out.

Sweeney nudged Tipp ahead once more from a free before Sexton tied it up at the death, and deep into injury time, Clare's Eoin Cleary received a black card.

Later in the evening Tipperary GAA tweeted to say that Stapelton was being kept in hospital overnight.

Honours were finally shared after a frantic finish to an incident-packed Allianz Football League Division 2 clash between Clare and Tipperary in Ennis.

"Our thanks to both Tipperary and Clare backroom medical teams for their prompt treatment to Shane in what were hard circumstances while play was ongoing".

"Best wishes to him for a speedy recovery".

Sexton grabbed Clare's first point from play on seven minutes before Tipp kicked four in-a-row by the 16th minute.

The Premier were dealt a cruel blow close to the break when star forward Michael Quinlivan was lost with a rib injury. Late in the half, Sexton and centre-back Ciarán Russell had a pair of fine points to reduce the deficit to just two at the by the change-of-ends.

Replies from Keelan Sexton, substitute Kieran Malone and Pearce Lillis finally reeled in the visitors by the 63rd minute at 0-10 to 0-10.

Within eight minutes of the restart, the teams were level thanks to Clare points from play by Malone and Pearse Lillis.
