With Jonathan O'Neill in superb form from placed balls, the visitors laid the foundations for victory in the first half and led 1-7 to 0-1 at the break even if their goal was fortuitous, with Meath 'keeper Shane McGann dropping the ball.

Stephen Clynch inspired Meath to a commendable second-half revival, but their efforts were undone by some poor finishing -- they tallied 15 wides.
