Tyrone are into the All-Ireland quarterfinals after overcoming Meath in a tense battle at Croke Park yesterday evening.

It was a contest that ebbed and flowed throughout, with the Red Hands defeating the Royals for the first time in senior

Championship combat.

Played in blustery conditions, Tyrone recovered from conceding an early goal to deservedly lead 0-11 to 1-4 at the break.

The pace of the Meath attack caused Tyrone problems early on, and in the seventh minute the Royals struck for a well worked goal.

Midfielder Conor Gillespie played the ball long to Michael Newman, who offloaded for Eamon Wallace to finish in style low to the bottom left hand corner of the net past Pascal McConnell.
