Kieran Donaghy has echoed what Philly McMahon said on Morning Ireland regarding the incident involving the pair in Sunday's All-Ireland football final.
Late in the match, with Kerry down three, and several players challenging for possession in front of the Dublin goal, McMahon placed his hand unnecessarily close to the eye of Donaghy.
The Kerry captain approached referee David Coldrick appearing to claim foul play.
McMahon said that 'what happens on the field, stays on the field'. Speaking to RTÉ Sport Donaghy offered the same assessment of the matter.
What happens on the field stays on the field and that's the way I've always played it.
An All-Ireland final is a one-off game and whatever happens I'd leave it at that. I wouldn't be carrying anything into next year.
The Sunday Game was widely criticised last night for its analysis of the flashpoint.
