Kieran Donaghy Claims That He Was Eye Gouged By Philly McMahon

Kieran Donaghy has claimed that he was eye gouged during the All Ireland Final.

Kerry Captain, Kieran Donaghy, has claimed that he was eye gouged by Dublin’s Philly McMahon during this year’s All Ireland Final.

Writing in today’s Irish Independent, Tom Rooney, has reported that Donaghy can be heard telling referee, David Coldrick, of the incident during the second half.

Donaghy’s complaint was picked up by a microphone placed on Coldrick as part of a documentary to be aired on RTE One on Monday night.

Rooney claims that the Kerry forward told the referee, ‘He gouged my eye on the ground, Dave’. Having not seen the incident, Coldrick replied, ‘I didn’t see that now, Kieran, that was just two lads competing, that’s all’.
