Meath took full advantage of their second bite of the cherry as they crushed Carlow by 2-21 to 1-9 at Tullamore on Saturday night to book their place in the Leinster SFC semi-final.
After a tense opening quarter, which saw Carlow take a 0-4 to 0-3 lead, Meath took control with Peadar Byrne on target with a goal to boost them to a 1-11 to 0-4 interval lead.
Byrne added a second goal after the break as Meath continued to dominate and the Royals can look forward to their 1st July test against either Kildare or Offaly with renewed optimism.
