Meath win All-Ireland replay

Meath captured the All-Ireland Intermediate Camogie title with a 0-10 to 0-7 replay victory over Cork and will play in the senior championship for the first time in 2018. 

Cheyenne O'Brien was in the referee's notebook from the throw-in and Cork were ahead after Keeva McCarthy pointed the resultant free. McCarthy added another point from a free soon after before Caroline Sugrue sent over from play.

That gave wind-assisted Cork a 0-3 to 0-0 advantage after only six minutes, but Jane Dolan pointed a free to get Meath off the mark in the eighth minute.

Meath managed only two motre points for the remainder of the half with Amy Gaffney and Dolan (free) on target, but they also had claims for a penalty turned down by referee John Dermody.

The Meath supporters were von their feet looking for a free close to the interval for what looked like a blatant puch in the back by a Cork defender, but the referee wasn't interested.

Wayward finishing was costly for Cork as they tallied six wides and added points from McCarthy (free) and Katelyn Hickey to lead by 0-5 to 0-3 at the interval.

Early second-half points from Gaffney and Dolan (free) drew the sides level, but Cork hit the front again when McCarthy sent over a free.

As the game entered the final quarter Meath's determination was evident with points from Dolan (free) followed by a superb effort from Aoife Maguire and a brace from Gaffney for a 0-9 to 0-6 lead with five minutes remaining.

The sides traded a point each in the remaining time with Dolan (free) and McCarthy (free) on target.
