Meath and Tyrone met each other in the first round of the GAA football qualifiers on Saturday evening.
Meath looked set to take a shock win over the Ulstermen but last year's semi-finalists managed to grab a late equaliser to take the game to extra-time.
Two periods of ten minute halves were played and Tyrone scrapped a one-point win despite a controversial ending to the game where Meath players felt they had been hard done by for not getting a free in a decent position on the stroke of the final whistle.
The main talking points weren't just on the pitch, however, as word came through that a man had been removed from the ground and arrested by Gardaí after he was seen flying a Palestine flag in the stands.
Shocking arrest of a man at Tyrone Meath game today for daring to fly a Palestinian Flag.

Irish Unity described the arrest as "Shocking" in a video that has now been viewed 90,000 times in less than 24 hours.
The GAA's Ulster Council recently banned the flying of Palestine flags in grounds. Today a man was arrested at the Meath V Tyrone game for flying a Palestine flag. A disgraceful situation. The GAA should repeal this ban immediately. PLEASE SIGN & RT! https://t.co/fiLiTMQObA pic.twitter.com/qIQaczOdXl

The Ulster Council recently banned the flying of Palestine flags in grounds but this is something that Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey is calling on the GAA to review.
