A powerful second-half display from Louth helped them to beat Antrim and win the Allianz League Division 4 title against Antrim.

The Leinster side trailed by four points at half-time but goals from Jim McEneaney and Conor Grimes helped Louth to a 3-12 to 1-14 win.

Both sides now begin preparations for the Championship this summer. Antrim begin their campaign in the Ulster Preliminary Round against Fermanagh, while Louth meet Carlow in the Leinster First Round.
