On the 4th of June, Meath defeated Antrim in the Christy Ring Cup Final by a point. Antrim were huge favourites going into the game but the Royals seemed to claim a famous victory. However it turned out that the referee and the scoreboard operator had the incorrect score at the end and the game had actually ended in a draw.
After a few days deliberation both teams agreed to a replay of the final on the 25th June in Croke Park. Again, the men from the Glens were favourites to win but the Meathmen pipped them with the last puck of the game in extra-time.
Meath captain James Toher is one of the very few to lift the same cup twice in one year.
It was like Groundhog Day for the Royals...
