Full deck for Dubs as they secure 52nd Leinster title

Here are 13 images that sum up the tug-of-war that went in the capital’s favour at Croke Park.

1. Hotly contested, right from the off as Meath’s Conor Gillespie and Brian Meade compete with Diarmuid Connolly and Michael Darragh MacAuley

2. Blue sky thinking for the Dublin faithful on Hill 16

3. Bernard Brogan was guarded closely all day

4. Meath lead 0-2 to 0-0 early on but Paul Flynn’s goal had the Royal fans anxious

5. Ciarán Kilkenny was a constant source of attacking nous for Jim Gavin’s men

6. Tempers flared as James McCarthy got to grips with Mikey Burke and Seamus Kenny of Meath

7. Meath were not the only side to show elements of the infamous blanket defence

8. Peadar Byrne shows his displeasure [and a gob] with Meath’s stalling challenge

9. The clincher came when Paul Mannion scored a goal in the closing stages

10. Leaving captain Stephen Cluxton to make his second acceptance speech this year…

11. …and his teammates to celebrate a 52nd Leinster title

12. Eoghan O’Gara and his daughter, Ella, with the Delaney Cup

13. Michael Darragh MacAuley leap frogs goalscorer Paul Mannion
