Meath to play Louth in Cavan

Unsavoury scenes after last year's Leinster final.

Meath will have to travel to Cavan to play Louth in the first round All-Ireland SFC qualifier on Saturday 25th June at 7pm.

The repeat of last year's Leinster final has been fixed for Breffni Park and will be screened live on RTÉ 2.

Although Louth had home advantage , the game will be played at a neutral venue because the Louth county ground, Drogheda, has a capacity of just 4,000.

Last year's provincial final between the two sides ended in controversy when Meath won the game with that late 'goal' from Joe Sheridan.

Unruly scenes followed the final whistle as some Louth 'supporters' targetted the referee and Meath players.

Those incidents resulted in court appearances for some of the supporters who were identified subsequently.

The Meath v Louth game will be preceded by the game between Cavan and Longford at 5pm.
