Off the back of the Round 2 defeat to Armagh in the Allianz Football League, Colm O’Rourke has made two changes in personnel to the starting XV for the Round 3 encounter against Louth on Sunday in Páirc Tailteann. There is one alteration in defence and another in the attack.


Ciaran Caulfield who missed that game in Armagh comes back into the side after recovering from a knock and he is a direct replacement for Michael Flood who reverts to the replacements bench.  Further forward, Diarmuid Moriarty, off the back of playing for UCD in the Electric Ireland Sigerson Cup Final on Wednesday evening, comes in as an indirect replacement for Jack Flynn.  Moriarty lines out at top of the left with Jack O’Connor moving out to the half forward line.


Daire Rowe who came onto the match-day 26 as a late addition two weeks ago, retains his place on the bench as does fellow late addition for that game in Armagh, Brian O’Reilly. Should either make an appearance then it would be for their League debut.

Sean Brennan will once more line out in goals and he will have the unchanged full back line in front of him of Donal Keogan, Adam O’Neill and Michael Murphy.  Darragh Campion who is in line to make his twentieth Allianz Football League appearance on Sunday once more anchors the defence from centre back with Sean Coffey who also played for UCD in Wednesday’s Sigerson Cup Final and the returning Caulfield manning the wing back positions.


Another man in line to make a twentieth Allianz Football League appearance is team captain Ronan Jones at midfield and he is joined by Cian McBride who made a first start for the Royals a fortnight ago.


Eoghan Frayne leads the attack at centre forward and he is flanked by Daithí McGowan and Jack O’Connor while the inside forward line is made up of Matthew Costello along with Moriarty and his UCD teammate Aaron Lynch.


Supporters attending the game on Sunday are asked to park in official car parks only and to not park in residential areas.



Tickets for the game on Sunday are available from selected SuperValu/Centra stores or can be purchased online: Meath v Louth Tickets


This is an all-ticket match and no tickets will be on sale at the venue.  The closest ticketing outlet to Páirc Tailteann is Bird’s SuperValu in Beechmount which is a twenty-five minute walk from the grounds.
