Dublin beat Meath in shootout to book O'Byrne Cup final place

Dublin 1-12 - 1-12 Meath

Dublin won 3-1 on penalties

Dublin will compete for even more silverware when they take on Westmeath in the O'Byrne Cup final after defeating rivals Meath in a penalty shootout.

The game finished level 1-12 apiece at the end of 70 minutes but the All-Ireland champions, managed for the night by Paul Clake, secured a final berth with the shootout win.

This was the second shootout in as many weeks after Mayo beat Leitrim 4-1 after their FBD League clash ended level last Sunday.

Minus a whole host of regular names, Ryan Basquel top-scored for the winners for the winners with 0-4.

Robert McDaid of Ballyboden St-Enda’s got their goal in regular time, while Graham Reilly raised Meath's in the first half.

Dublin go into the final against an in-form Westmeath outfit, who impressed in their 12-point win over Longford on Saturday afternoon.
