In Pictures: The visit of Dublin to Meath

It was the first time in 35 years that Meath hosted Dublin in the League, unfortunately Colm O'Rourke's side were not about to mark the occasion with a historic win, going down 2-19 to 1-11pts at a packed Tailteann Park.

Meath Chronicle photographers Gerry Shanahan and David Mullen captured the atmosphere and excitement leading up to the game while Gavan Becton caught some video the eagerly anticipated clash.
