Meath boss Mick O'Dowd claims one of his players was bitten during the Leinster final

Meath manager Mick O'Dowd complains to the sideline official after his side scored a goal which was disallowed during the first half.

Meath boss Mick O'Dowd has claimed that one of his players suffered a bite in today's Leinster final defeat to Dublin at Croke Park.

Following their 3-20 to 1-10 defeat to Jim Gavin's Dublin at GAA Headquarters, O'Dowd alleged that Mickey Burke was bitten in the second half.

Mickey Burke's left hand was bandaged as he left Croke Park today.

When asked about the alleged incident, Jim Gavin said that he was unaware of the allegations.

There will undoubtedly be an investigation into the claims.

Dublin player Kevin O’Brien, who was not involved today, was given a three-match ban for an alleged biting incident on Donegal forward Paddy McBrearty during the 2013 National League campaign.

However the proposed ban for the Dublin player by the Central Competitions Control Committee was revoked by the Central Hearings Committee.

McBrearty didn't attend the hearing and the CHC decided the alleged biting offence was not proven.

GAA president Liam O'Neill said subsequently there was a certain level of disappointment with the case, adding that it had left people who acted in good faith with an outcome that wasn't satisfactory.
