Meath manager Eamonn Murray has revealed that his squad truly believed they could topple the giants of ladies football when they faced off against Dublin in yesterday’s decider.

And he claimed that to be the best you have to do what his young side did and beat the best.

He said, ‘Dublin are a class outfit, an unbelievable team. To be the best you have to beat the best and we certainly did that today. We were by far the best team today. We had the luck with us all year but it’s not luck when you beat all of these top teams. They are a very special bunch of players I’m dealing with here.

‘I never questioned they wouldn’t win, and I mean that, we never questioned for one minute. We knew this year, we set out to win every game, and same as today, they showed no sign of panic.

‘These are heroes, and will be heroes for life if they never kick another ball,they’ll go down in history.’
