According to Gordon Manning of The Irish Sun, Donohoe appeared to push Gilroy and the incident is now under review:

GAA disciplinary chiefs are reviewing an incident during which Wexford’s Simon Donohue appeared to shove Dublin hurling boss Pat Gilroy.

The flashpoint occurred in the latter stages of the Model County’s 0-22 to 2-14 Leinster SHC win over the Dubs at Wexford Park.

Gilroy was on the sideline, and off the pitch, and there is no suggestion the Dubs manager had entered the field of play.

But Donohue could find himself in hot water as a number of players rushed over after the alleged ­incident.

The Shelmaliers club-man could now face a one-match-ban, which would force him out of the Offaly clash in Tullamore this weekend.
