Mattie Kenny was adamant that Dublin had a perfectly good goal disallowed in their Walsh Cup semi-final defeat to his native Galway.

Donal Burke flicked a long ball from John Hetherton to the net at Parnell Park, but it was disallowed for 'square ball'.

"From where I was standing it looked like a legit goal," the Dublin manager told the Irish Daily Star.

"I thought Donal Burke was running in on the square, but the officials thought different.

"But look, it's a Walsh Cup game in January, we're just delighted to get a workout of that quality against Galway."
