Productive Saturday for County Senior Sides

Saturday May 20 proved to be a fruitful day for the Meath Senior Football and Hurling panels as both recorded victories away from home in their respective Championships.  The hurlers booked their place in the Christy Ring Cup Final when accounting for a stiff Sligo challenge while the footballers recovered from a shaky first half to defeat Waterford, with three second half goals aiding their cause significantly.


Éamon Óg Ó Donnchadha was in sparkling form up front for the hurlers as he helped himself to four points and caused the Yeats County side untold problems throughout while Jack Regan top scored with 0-10, 0-09 of which came from placed balls. The final score was Meath 0-24 Sligo 0-18.

Later on Saturday evening, the footballers travelled to the picturesque Fraher Field in Dungarvan to play Waterford in what was a rare Championship meeting between the sides and came away in the end with a nine point victory.


In the first half, goalkeeper Sean Brennan came to their rescue on more than one occasion with excellent saves while up front Aaron Lynch and Mathew Costello were our scorers with nine points between them.
