The GAA has reportedly decided to not pursue further any disciplinary proceedings relating to an allegation of biting in Sunday’s Leinster SFC final.

During the game, Meath defender Mickey Burke showed his finger to the referee after a scuffle on the ground with Dublin forward Eoghan O'Gara in the 63rd minute, and Royals boss Mick O’Dowd claimed after the game that the Moynalty man had been bitten.

The Examiner reported that the GAA’s Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) cited a lack of evidence as the reason for allegations not being pursued.

Dublin County Board chairman Andy Kettle told the Examiner that the issue was “done and over with”, and Meath secretary Francis Flynn said, “that would be the end of it now, as far as we’re concerned.”
