Pairc Tailteann hosted the Sean Cox Fund SF Charity Match between Meath and Dublin this afternoon.

It was a wonderful occasion to support Dunboyne clubman Sean in his rehabilitation from the serious and life altering injuries he suffered while attending a Liverpool match last April.

For the record, the Royals edged out the All-Ireland champions on a scoreline of 0-16 to 1-11 in front of a bumper crowd.
