A huge weekend is in store for club football in Meath as Páirc Tailteann plays host to several county finals. On Sunday, the men's senior football championship final will be contested.
St. Peter's Dunboyne take on Wolfe Tones in the Keegan Cup decider on Sunday November 7th, where it's a battle of south Meath versus north Meath.
During the week, some Wolfe Tones supporters raised the banter stakes by posting a sign that wished good luck to their club against 'The Dubs', aka Dunboyne. The Meath town sits 3.3km from the Dublin border.

The Wolfe Tones area comprises of the parishes of Oristown, Gibbstown, Kilberry and Wilkinstown. It's situated around fifteen minutes north of Navan.
Balls.ie's sources close to the Dunboyne camp inform us that no one in the panel is remotely bothered or insulted by the signage. Wolfe Tones sources say it was a humorous touch but not their doing.
Many in Dunboyne are happy to admit that many Dubliners have settled in the town in recent years. Nonetheless, there'll be a few more eyes on this county final come Sunday to see who will lift the Keegan Cup.
The parish of Dunboyne is further south, with the town only a short drive away from the Dublin border. It's home to legendary Meath manager Sean Boylan.
St. Peter's Dunboyne last tasted senior championship success in 2018. They've won three Keegan Cups in total, first joining the senior ranks in 1993.
Wolfe Tones most recently stopped Ratoath from going for three county titles-in-a-row in the semi-final two weeks ago. They last won the senior crown in 2006.
The venue on the day, Páirc Tailteann, will have a lot to stand up to. Both the senior men's and ladies' finals are set to be contested on the same day Sunday coming.
