Royals usurp Rebels.

Larry is not so free

It was Larry Tompkins’ year all the way up to the All-Ireland final. He had kicked equalising points against Kerry in the Munster final and Galway in their penultimate game. In the final, though, Tomkins missed six out of eight from placed balls. Colm O’Rourke, by contrast, was one of Meath’s heroes. He scored a decisive first-half goal and Meath never relinquished their advantage to claim their second title in a row.
