Listen: Andy McEntee Furious With Meath Despite Nine-Point Comeback Against Cork

Meath's famed historical suspicion of being beaten was on show in Pairc Ui Rinn this afternoon: they came from nine points behind to earn a draw against Cork in their Division Two clash, the game finishing with a scoreline of 0-18 to 1-15.

Cork led by 9 points with 15 minutes to go, but Meath, aided by a stiff breeze, battled back: they reeled off an unanswered 1-6: Donal Keogan scored the goal, with Donal Lenihan scoring the levelling point with six minutes to go. Meath then hit the front through Sean Tobin, only for Cork to respond with an equaliser, and then a lead point by Barry O’Driscoll. But Meath were given a late, late chance to earn a point: Lenihan converting a stoppage-time free after a foul on Graham Reilly.

After the game, Meath manager Andy McEntee spoke with LMFM, and he was furious with his side's performance, despite the superb late comeback, accusing of his side of having blown the game.

You can listen to the conversation below:


The result means that Meath are third in Division Two, with five points: one behind Galway in second and three adrift of leaders Kildare. Cork's plight deepens: they remain threatened with relegation. They are fifth, but are kept out of the penultimate spot on scoring difference, and are a single point clear of bottom-placed Derry.
