When Diarmuid Connolly and Lee Keegan meet, you are pretty much guaranteed fireworks.

The pair have history and today was no different as they were involved in a bust up during the second half of today's All Ireland final draw between Dublin and Mayo.

Connolly appeared to push his fist off the face of Keegan before trying to rip his shirt off. Connolly then dragged the Mayo man to the ground and appeared to throw a couple of more punches before they were separated.

Connolly was sent off when the sides met in last year's semi-final but it was rescinded at a DRA hearing. Connolly had claimed that he was choked by the Mayo man and Keegan admitted that he had provoked the Dublin All Star during the match.
