WATCH - Meath's Graham Reilly gets away with kicking Diarmuid Connolly in the head

Meath forward Graham Reilly was very lucky not to receive his marching orders in the first half of their Leinster semi-final clash with Dublin at Croke Park.
Towards the end of the first half, the pair tangled in the Meath half and when Connolly hit the ground, Reilly appeared to kick his opponent as he lay on the floor.
The Dublin forward immediately rose to his feet and confronted Reilly, knocking him to the ground with a shoulder, but the officials failed to spot the infringement and Reilly's misdemeanour went unpunished.

"When you see these things in slow motion, they are way worse looking but he does the draw the boot. It's a red card. The ball is well gone," Tomás Ó Sé told the Sunday Game.
Mickey Burke was later yellow-carded for what appeared to be a punch into Ciaran Kilkenny's face.
Dublin won the game by 0-21 to 0-11.
