Leinster final.. Meath V Louth

Hey, anyone want to tell me what they thought of this for a Leinster final. I went to the County club in Dunshaughlin to get some photographs for the paper and sat to watch the game with a friend. I suppose after the game against Dublin, some of us were expecting a bit of a game, tho I know the Meath / Dub game was not a true reflection of the abilities of either teams.. Have to say that I was a bit, no, very disappointed with the whole thing.. Time after time Meath lost possession from the kick out at midfield, Thankfully Louth didn't capitalise on this. I watched a poor ref make a bad game worse, and was delighted to see Meath go in three points up at halftime. Seventeen minutes into the second half, Meath picked up their first score of that half, the Meath forwards never scored, and while it looked like Louth were going to lift the cup with a minimum point margin, by some stroke of luck??? or whatever it was, the ball ended up in the Louth net, with Joe Sheridan sitting beside it. One umpire was enough to convince the ref that the goal should count, I guess the other umpires opinion didn't count. I cant help but think that a penalty might have been a good decision prior to the goal. And well, there is no excuse for attacking a referee, no matter how bad he or she may have been. What happened there was criminal, and people should be accountable for their actions here. They wouldn't get away with it on the street, or in a pub on a Saturday night. As far as a replay is concerned, well you can forget about that.. Ask the French! I still got some cracking photos and you will be able to see them on my site soon.. Anyway, well done Meath, and I really really mean that
