Dublin and Meath will play a challenge match next month to help raise funds for Dunboyne man Sean Cox, who suffered devastating injuries in an attack outside Anfield last April.

Jim Gavin's All-Ireland champions will travel to Pairc Tailteann in Navan to face the Royal County on Sunday 16 December.

It's the latest in a series of initiatives to offer support to the Cox family.

Sean Cox is a member of the St Peter's Dunboyne GAA club - Liverpool hung the team's jersey in their dressing room ahead of the premier League game against Stoke - and there's been an enormous outpouring of goodwill since the attack.

Cox sustained serious head injuries in an incident before Liverpool's 5-2 victory against Rome at the Merseyside ground.

Seamus Coleman and Jurgen Klopp are among the huge numbers who've made donations on a gofundme fundraising page which has raised nearly €221k to date.

Dublin and Meath this evening both confirmed the game will take place.
