We have reached the LGFA All-Ireland Quarter-Final stage and now Meath look ahead to a repeat of the 2022 Final as they travel to Kerry. 

Jenny Rispin’s Royals head into a highly anticipated affair with Kerry to determine who will reach the All-Ireland Semi-Finals as they try and win 3-in-a-row. 

Meath and Kerry met in last years final and it was the Royals who came out on top, winning by nine points at the GAA HQ.

Monica McGuirk spoke to Meath Live ahead of the encounter stating that the team is “under no illusions” coming up against a highly talented Kerry side. 

McGuirk admitted that it has been a challenging year for the Meath panel with a lot of new faces in the dressing room. The result of having new faces meant trying out new styles of play. 

She added that she does not want the inter-county season to “come to an early end” and hopes that her side can come one step closer to winning their third All-Ireland title in a row. 

Meath beat Waterford in their group of a scoreline of 1-13 to 1-8 before being beaten by Donegal 1-10 to 0-12 after two late points from Susanne White and Karen Gutherie. This meant that Donegal would take top spot and getting the “easier” game in the Quarter-Final. 

Kerry head into the game on the back of two wins from two in the group stage beating Dublin and Cavan on their way to this game and will come into the game with high hopes of beating the current All-Ireland champions. 

These two sides met already this year in the Lidl Ladies National Football League where Kerry eased to a 1-18 to 0-9 win and went on to win the league beating Galway in the Final. 

Emma Duggan impressed in the defeat to Donegal scoring 0-7 from the half-back line and will need to ensure she is on top of her game again if the Royals are to secure a place in the Semi-Finals. 

The match will be shown on TG4 with coverage beginning at 7.15pm and throw-in at 7.30pm live from Austin Stack Park, Tralee.
