Dear sir - I am writing to convey my absolute abhorrence at the decision by the Meath board and players not to arrange for a replay against Louth in the Leinster final. I, like many others find their decision beyond belief. As a sportsman myself, I ask how could Meath justify 'winning' the trophy in that manner? - Letter from a Drogheda resident in the Meath Chronicle, July 2010

Last week, Peter Fitzpatrick sat down to watch the 2010 Leinster senior football final in full for only the third time.

There was no particular reason why, other than that it had come up in conversation and not a week goes by that he doesn't think of that game at least once.
