Gardai said that shortly after 9pm, they were alerted following a disturbance “involving a group of supporters inside the grounds at a soccer match in Longford town”.
“The disturbance was brought under control by gardaí and stewards,” gardai said.
“A number of those involved were identified and removed from the grounds.
