TYRONE AND DUBLIN players appeared to clash as they retired to the dressing rooms at half-time in their Allianz League Division 1 meeting at Healy Park tonight.

In a game that is being played in horrific conditions, Tyrone had scored 0-5 to Dublin’s 1-2 at the break, after Colm Basquel had found the net in the opening few minutes for the visitors.

After a scrappy half of football, television cameras caught an altercation in the tunnel as the teams left the pitch at the break.

Speaking on RTÉ’s television coverage of the game, Colm O’Rourke said the altercation looked more ‘serious’ than just pushing and shoving.

“That’s not just handbags, there is a lot of really serious punches being thrown in there,” O’Rourke said.

“That’s shocking,” added Tomás Ó Sé.

“From the very start you can see there’s awful swinging going on.”

While Ó Sé continued to name some players by name, it is unclear to see who exactly was involved in the melee due to the high number of people in the tunnel.

Tyrone’s Padraig Hampsey was shown a black card when the teams emerged for the second half, while Niall Scully was later black-carded for Dublin.
