Team News

Louth: C Quigley; M Kane, D Campbell, N McCabe; C Bellew, D Grimes, D McMahon; R McCabe, M Breen; S Thornton, P Reilly, C Smyth; C McKeever, J Horan, C Byrne

Preview
Conaire Quigley and Patrick Reilly have been included in the visitors starting fifteen. Jamie Mulholland and Conor Grimes are both out through injury so the former pair come in in goal and at full forward respectively. Louth beat the royals in the first round, but Meath came through the backdoor.

Meath make one change from their quarter final defeat of Wexford, with Declan Smyth replacing Barry McConnon at wingback. When the sides met in April,it was a close affair with the Wee County winning 1-13 to 1-11. It looks as if it will be just as tight on Wednesday evening.
