Dublin wing-back James McCarthy was sent-off in his side's 1-10 to 0-7 victory over Donegal at GAA Headquarters but is he facing retrospective action.

McCarthy was dismissed for a second yellow in the second half of the win, in the same fracas that saw Michael Murphy sent to the stands for a second bookable offence.

A slow-motion replay of the incident appears to show James McCarthy making contact with the eye of an opponent.

Reaction to the incident has been mixed on social media. Make your own mind, watch the incident below:
