Emma Duggan dazzled at Croke Park yet again this afternoon with another spectacular goal for Meath in the All-Ireland ladies senior football championship final against Dublin.

After her heroics in the extra-time semi-final win over Cork, the Dunboyne teenage sensation continued her red-hot form - chipping the ball over goalkeeper Ciara Trant's head and into the net - shades of Mike Sheehy's famous 1978 All-Ireland SFC final goal versus Dublin - to hand the Royals a deserved 1-8 to 0-6 half-time lead.

The five-in-a-row chasing Dubs struggled to handle Meath's deadly attacking power as Duggan, Vikki Wall and Niamh O'Sullivan caused Mick Bohan's side all sorts of problems in the opening 30 minutes, while at the other end, Meath goalkeeper Monica McGuirk pulled off a great save to deny Hannah Tyrrell.
