Kildare and Meath served up three enthralling battles in the 1997 Leinster SFC semi-final, today we look back on the semi-final replay where the game ended up level after extra-time.

Played in front of 54,000 people, the atmosphere was electric as Kildare took over Hill 16. The game had everything, fast hard open football, brilliant scores, a penalty save & great commitment & fight from both teams.
