It took extra-time but Meath have defeated Antrim in the replayed Christy Ring Cup final.

After neither side could overcome the other in normal time, Meath edged it 4-21 to 5-17 at Croke Park.

 

The Royals had won the original final three weeks ago but that had been due to a score-keeping error which forced today's match to take place.
