Social Media Reaction – Down answer their critics

Joe Murphy scored Down's opening goal

Joe Murphy scored Down’s opening goal

Down had not won a game in league and championship in 22 months but on Saturday night they ended that losing record when they beat Meath by 1-13 to 0-14.

It was a great result for the Mourne men considering that Meath had beat Derry by 3-15 to 0-9 in the previous round.

Joe Murphy’s goal got Down off to a great start, and they were able to stay ahead of the Meath fight back.

Kevin McKernan had a great game and scored 0-2. Eamonn Burns’s charges maintained their slight advantage throughout the second half but suffered a late scare when Gerard McGovern stopped Donal lenihan’s goal-bound effort.

Some Down players, fans, and ex players were delighted with the result, as it not only gave them much-needed points in division 2, but also lifted spirits.

It was a fitting response from the players following the county board’s official statement which expressed their frustration at the county’s depiction in the media.

Here’s what they said on Twitter:
