Ireland's success in Lille has had a knock on effect on the

Dublin v Meath confirmed for later time of 6.35pm in Croke Park this Sunday 26th June.

The victory meant that the team advance to face France in the last 16 of the tournament at 2pm in Lyon on Sunday. While the clash is likely to affect the attendance the fact that the throw-in times have been moved should lessen the impact somewhat.

The game was due to throw in at 4pm on Sunday, with Kildare versus Meath starting before that at 2pm.

Dubs boss Gavin said: "It was a great night for Irish sport and I think it was a very wise and smart decision by the Leinster Council".

"Irish people are passionate about their sport and there's massive interest in the European Championships and it will be a great buzz now on Sunday", Gavin continued.

"Fans from all four counties will be talking about that game so I think it's a great decision by the Leinster Council and it doesn't inconvenience us at all".

Gavin said that attacker Paddy Andrews trained with Dublin on Wednesday evening having missed their Championship opener against Laois with a back problem.
