Can Meath finish with a win in Drogheda next Sunday?

Following the superb victory by Meath in Navan by 1-14 to 1-11 against Down, Mick O’Dowd’s men will go into next Sunday’s final round against Louth safe from the threat of relegation after today’s results are taken into account.

There is also a slim chance that Meath could actually make the decider, but it would require a series of favourable results from other venues and a comprehensive Meath victory in Drogheda.

On Saturday night a strong finish saw Meath win an exciting clash at Pairc Tailteann where the teams were level on five occasions as the hosts trailed by o-6 to 0-7 at the break.

Graham Reilly found the net for Meath in the second-half in front of a crowd that was close to 4,000 despite a live telecast from Setanta and the hosts prevailed although they lost Michael Newman, Sean Curran and Eoghan Harrington due to injuries.

Meath - Paddy O’Rourke; Donal Keogan, Kevin Reilly, Caolan Young; Sean Curran, Eoghan Harrington, Damien Carroll (0-2); Bryan Menton (0-1), Shane O’Rourke (0-2); Donncha Tobin, Andrew Tormey (0-2), Graham Reilly (1-2); Dalton McDonagh, Stephen Bray (0-3), Michael Newman (0-1).
Subs - David Larkin for Newman 27 mins, Seamus Kenny (0-1) for Curran 34m, Paddy Gilsenan for Harrington 49m, David Bray for McDonagh 52m, Mark O’Sullivan for Tormey 70m.
