In Pictures: Dublin see off Meath despite spirited display by the Royals

Diarmuid Connolly was the star attraction as he kick Dublin beyond Meath in Leinster clash

In the second Leinster semi-final of the day, Dublin had to be patient in defeating Meath as the Royals came to Croke Park with intensity, purpose and lots of energy.

The tie would finish 21 points to 11 but Meath stuck with Dublin, who are quite obviously the cream of the crop at the moment, for most of the game and will not fear any team in the qualifier draw set to be made next week.
