St Peter's Dunboyne won the Meath Senior Ladies Football Championship with a 3-23 to 1-9 victory over Senchalstown on Sunday.

The game was played as a part of a double-header with the men's senior football final at Páirc Tailteann. Dunboyne also played in the men's final. Though, they were beaten by Wolfe Tones.

"We're lucky in Dunboyne, in the club we definitely are treated as equals," Vikki Ward told RTÉ Radio 1 after her side's win.

"It's great for the two games to be played on the same day. It would be great to see it happening across the country. I don't see a reason why it can't. I know the Cork LGFA finals are being played in Páirc Uí Chaoimh for the first time. Those type of things are great, and it's a step forward. Any step forward is a good step, I think.

"Having it in the one place meant that everyone who wanted to support the men's and the women's [could do that]. It's a long day out, but a good day out. It's just unreal to see the crowd that was at our match, and the crowd at this match now.

"The atmosphere, in general, it just makes such a difference. The lads were supporting us beforehand, and then us supporting them after. It creates a nice atmosphere and vibe around the place."

"We were all taken aback by it," she said about the reaction to the win.

"I didn't expect that reaction at all. I don't think it's sunk in with a lot of us yet. We've gone back to our clubs so quickly. There's no time for reflection just yet.

"It's been unbelievable to see the impact it's had on young boys and girls, even in my own village of Dunboyne has been unbelievable."
