Meath ladies manager Eamonn Murray has said he believes keeping the ball out of the net will the key to a Royal repeat of last years success when they face off against Kerry in Sunday’s All Ireland decider.

The Kingdom has been goal machines in this year’s championship and it’s helped propel them into their first All-Ireland senior championship final in ten years.

Meath, meanwhile, is out to retain the title that they secured for the first time last year and Murray says it could be a classic at Croker.

“Kerry has scored 13 goals in their last four games. That’s a big thing, if we stop the goals we’ll win the game. It’s that simple. It could be an outstanding game of football, with one attack-minded team and the other a bit more defensive,” he told RTE Sport.

“It could be a shootout between Emma Duggan and Louise Ní Mhuircheartaigh.”

He added: “We’ll do what we can to win. We’ll give it 100%, if that’s not enough then so be it.”
