The Meath men of '49 brought home the Sam Maguire Cup to the Royal County for the very first time! The man that had the honour of lifting this cup was their proud captain, "The Great" Brian Smyth. Meath defeated Cavan 1-10 to 1-6 in front of a record attendance of 76,460. Brain who graced the number 11 jersey, scored four points that special September afternoon!
Up the Royals!!
