Pairc Tailteann

Replying To Royalio11:  "I agree, Pairc Tailteann is a beautiful place in the sunshine.

The hair stood on the back of my neck with the roar from the stand when Mickey Burke kicked his point. I hadn't heard such a shudder since Brian Farrell knocked over the winner against Galway in 2011 !!

I hope the redevelopment begins as soon as the club scene comes to an end. I really couldn't accept more false dawns on this project"
Couldn't agree more, I am fairly young so first time going to a Meath game in Navan was 06 against Laois and Munnelly scoring two goals. Almost all of my formative GAA memories came in that ground, from freezing O'Byrne Cup and league nights to scorching Summer Saturday's for qualifier games standing on the O'Mahony's end before it was closed. Also loads of club games in both hurling and football. I was even lucky enough to play in and win two competitions at underage on the pitch (albeit Mickey Mouse comps). I really hope we can see progress pretty quickly and I have a little bit of hope as once Dunganny's clubhouse started (took a while) it was done fairly quickly. I hope the new stadium has the same spirit and beautiful carpet pitch of the old one, just without the pain in the arse from the wooden benches and the brutal obstructions caused by the pillars and maybe some improved results. A 21,000 all-seater Navan packed to the rafters for a Super 8 game is something I think all of us dream of

Would be nice to have div1 football to bring to the new stadium aswell, saturday night under lights against the big boys.

For all we've achieved down the years since its last redevelopment, it probably deserved a better send off, although not for the lack of effort.

Here's hoping we get a few more lsfc home games in the future aswell.

that was my introduction to Meath senior matches being from Kells. Remember the teams used to come up the hill and through the tree's to come in the little gate. You'd hear the teams before you'd see them. Many a great afternoon there seeing the corks, kerry's and dublin whilst PT was being redeveloped. Remember making that run with pride when i would've played there during schools matches when we used that pitch in Kells rather than our school pitch.

Those were great times tbh. Anyone remember the draw for the turkey at halftime? (To those younger league started before Christmas)
