Dublin midfielder James McCarthy has claimed that an object was thrown at Dean Rock as he kicked the free which handed Dublin three All-Ireland titles in a row.

Rock's 76th minutes free separated the teams after a pulsating game at Croke Park which ended 1-17 to 1-16.

Speaking to RTE News, McCarthy claimed that something was thrown at Rock as he ran up to take the 40-yard free.

A black object can be clearly seen close to the ball as Rock makes contact with the ball.

The Central Competitions Control Committee may wish to investigate the incident.
