Wicklow shock Meath in Ladies Football Championship

Wicklow have knocked reigning champions Meath out of the TG4 Ladies Leinster Intermediate Football Championship following an impressive victory this afternoon.

The win means that Wicklow remain unbeaten this season having enjoyed a successful league campaign in division four with a 100% record.

Mick O’Rourke’s team went into the game in Roundwood as underdogs but found themselves 1-9 to 0-7 ahead at half-time thanks to a goal from Laura Hogan.

Meath rebounded and fought their way back into the game in the second half through goals from Stacey Grimes and Marion Farrelly, only for a decisive goal from substitute Claire Walsh to help Wicklow edge out the champions by 2-17 to 2-15.

Wicklow will travel to Longford for the semi-finals of the Leinster championship on the 17th of June, while Wexford and Laois meet in the other semi-final.
