Bizarre Situation As Meath Club Loses Twice In The Same Match

Bizarre Situation As Meath Club Loses Twice In The Same Match

In most situations, any time two clubs are drawn together in a cup match, there's a callback, or indeed a look forward to their last meeting. Some teams might use the first game as an oppurtunity to scout the opposition for the future meeting.

Not such the case in Meath. They do things a little differently there.

St.Peter's Dunboyne and Na Fianna are both well-established clubs in Meath hurling. They both compete in Division One of the League. Dunboyne competes in the senior championship, with Na Fianna playing in the Intermediate championship.

Their league clash was set for Friday evening when the fixtures were released a couple of weeks ago. But both sides had subsequently qualified for the quarter final of the Brendan Davis Cup, the Meath hurling equivalent of football's League Cup.


In a perfect example of killing two birds with one stone, there was a winner take all match in Dunboyne at the weekend.

And indeed, the home side did take it all, coming out victorious on a scoreline of 4-19 to 2-16. It put them joint top of the table and set up a semi-final against Kildalkey.

The defeat for Na Fianna leaves them second from bottom in Division One. Their next game is against bottom side Boardsmill.


Which means there could be a bit of regret about the decision to play both games at once should they lose that one.
