Cork City Issue Lifetime Bans To Two Individuals Who Taunted Stephen Bradley

The two individuals have admitted to their part in the abuse and have apologised for their behaviour.

Cork City have handed lifetime bans to two supporters following their abuse of Shamrock Rovers manager Stephen Bradley.

Both individuals have admitted their involvement, and have apologised.

The abuse focused on Bradley’s son’s battle with leukaemia.

Following the game, Bradley expressed disgust at the chanting and announced that he would be contacting the Gardaí on the matter. Cork City condemned the chanting and promised swift action.

This afternoon, they reported that the fans involved had received permanent bans.

"Cork City FC can confirm that two individuals have received lifetime bans from Turner's Cross as a result of their actions after last week’s game against Shamrock Rovers," the club said in a statement.

"Both persons have admitted their involvement in directing abuse at Shamrock Rovers manager Stephen Bradley and have apologised for their behaviour.

"Investigations into the matter by the relevant authorities are ongoing, and Cork City FC has offered our full support and cooperation with this process.

"The club wishes to reiterate its zero tolerance policy with regard to abuse of this nature.

"We also commend all of those who have shown their support and solidarity with Stephen Bradley and his family in the aftermath of this incident."
