Watch: Philly McMahon And Keith Higgins Involved In Tunnel Fracas

At half-time of the All-Ireland Final, Philly McMahon and Keith Higgins got into an altercation as the teams spilled into the dressing rooms.

Footage shows Dublin's McMahon saying something to his Mayo counterpart Higgins, which led to both Higgins and Aidan O'Shea lunging at the Dublin substitute.

Higgins firstly pushed McMahon in the supporting wall of the tunnel with O'Shea then pushing (with a bit of force) McMahon in the head.

The fracas continued on into the tunnel which wasn't caught by the TV cameras.

Following the incident, the RTE panel, as well as social media at large, didn't have an awful lot of sympathy for Philly McMahon.

Panelist Colm O'Rourke played the incident down, saying that he "often got a whip of wet dish cloth from my mother for doing more".

At half-time, Dublin led Mayo 2-06 to 0-10.
