PHILLY MCMAHON AND Cillian O’Connor have both got the green light to line out in next Saturday’s All-Ireland semi-final replay at Croke Park.

Morning Ireland on RTÉ Radio One has reported today that the GAA’s CCCC have opted not to retrospectively punish either player for incidents in last Saturday’s pulsating drawn clash.

McMahon has been cleared in the wake of an alleged headbutt in the second-half of the game on Aidan O’Shea.

O’Connor will also escape any censure after being involved in the incident that saw Rory O’Carroll depart the action through injury in the early moments of the game.
