Leinster derby switched to Ulster

The stand-out fixture in the All-Ireland SFC Qualifiers, the Leinster derby between Louth and Meath, is to be played in Ulster.

Breffni Park in Cavan is to host the game, a repeat of last year's infamous Leinster final, on June 25.

On that occasion, Joe Sheridan's late goal was incorrectly allowed to stand, and Louth were robbed of a first provincial title in 60 years.

Louth, having been drawn first, are entitled to home advantage, but with a capacity of just 4,00 at their ground in Drogheda, the GAA decided to stage the tie at Breffni.

The game will be part of a double bill, with the meeting of Cavan and Longford to be played as a curtain-raiser.
