After scraping over Offaly last day out, Meath manager Andy McEntee was much happier with his team’s performance against Carlow in yesterday's last eight clash.
Goals from Michael Newman and Padraic Harnan sent the Royals on the road to a 2-18 to 0-9 victory over the Barrowsiders and a semi-final clash with the winners of Laois versus Westmeath.
“If everyone was being brutality honest with themselves, they would admit that the performance against Offaly was a below par performance,” the Meath boss commented to RTE Sport in Portlaoise.
“The good thing and the fortunate thing was that we got a chance to show ourselves in a better light.
“The truth of the matter is that it was a better performance today, in the end it was a little bit more relaxed.”Tweet
