Video: Here is what happened to the Rose of Tralee stage invader when the cameras stopped rolling

This is what happened to Justice 4 Fathers protester Matt O’Connor after he jumped on stage during the 57th annual Rose of Tralee.

New footage has emerged of several men dragging the Fathers 4 Justice protester from the stage at The Rose of Tralee on Monday night.

O'Connor, who took to the stage while the Cavan Rose Lisa Reilly was being interviewed was first tackled by two men, before a third man helped drag him offstage.

Live television audiences didn't see the incident, as RTÉ immediately cut to a promo.

Shocked audience members can be heard saying 'is this really happening?'
