Meath footballers dash Louth hopes for replay

Meath footballers are almost unanimously opposed to offering a replay to Louth, after Meath controversially won the Leinster SFC final at the weekend, according to a media report.

RTE news reorts this morning that the Meath players do not wish to have a replay, which all but dashes Louth hopes for a rematch.

Meath got a controversial late goal to take a 1-12 to 1-10 victory on Sunday, lifting the Delaney Cup for the first time since 2001.

Graham Reilly sent a long hopeful ball in towards the Louth square deep into injury-time.

The ball broke to Seamus Kenny whose shot was brilliantly blocked by Louth captain Paddy Keenan, but the loose ball found its way to Joe Sheridan, who seemingly carried it over the goal-line.

The goal was allowed to stand and Meath claimed a dramatic win.

Referee Martin Sludden has admitted he made a mistake in allowing the goal.
