Dublin's senior footballers could face disciplinary action for delaying their run-out onto the pitch for yesterday's All Ireland final.

The defending champions broke with protocol when they were several minutes late coming out of their dressing-room at Croke Park.

They had been scheduled to be the first team out on the pitch at 2.56pm but had not emerged from the tunnel until 3.02pm.

The mix-up led to a potential flash-point as the Mayo players also emerged from the tunnel at the same time.

The GAA's Central Competitions Control Committee will review the matter.
