Investigations are ongoing after ugly scenes in Parnell Park on Saturday when a fight broke out during the Leinster intermediate hurling quarter-final.
Oulart the Ballagh of Wexford and Naomh Barróg of Dublin were contesting the tie, which the Dublin side won 3-2 on penalties.
A mass melee, involving most of the starting players from both sides erupted on the field before substitutes and mentors also became involved.
The incident marks yet another black day in recent events occurring in the GAA calendar.
The Chairperson of Leinster GAA Pat Teehan has immediately moved to condemn the actions.
He said: "We play hundreds of games every weekend in a spirit of enjoyment for both players and spectators and unfortunately we get isolated incidents which are rightly highlighted in the media and elsewhere because they have no place in our games.
"We must deal them in as harsh a manner as we can, but also in a fair manner"

This is one of several ugly scenes in the game of late, with a juvenile Harty Cup game delivering a mass scuffle between De La Salle College and Gaelcholaiste Mhuire an Mhainistir Thuaidh in Dungarvan.
With eight minutes remaining in the Cup clash, ugly scenes broke out between players, substitutes and mentors, leaving one player requiring attention for a head injury.
Referee Thomas Walsh didn't have any umpires or linesmen to assist him, leaving the official with an impossible situation to deal with.
