Meath - Martin Ennis

Sorry to see Martin calling it a day. Meath have advanced well during his tenure.

I wonder who will take over. I am not close to the county hurling scene but I wonder is it now time to get a well established hurling manager from outside the county to take over? Perhaps more of the Kiltale contingent will come on board and others like Toher and Douglas may throw their lot in with the hurlers next year.

All conjecture but best wishes to Martin and his selectors in the future.

Martin Ennis


Think this deserves its own thread.
Big thank you to Martin Ennis for his efforts as Meath manager over the last few years. The Christy Ring final (both games) was one of the best moments in Meath GAA in years. He can hold his head high. Meath hurling is much better off now than when he first took over.

Good decision 3 years was a good stint maybe now some of the best hurlers in the County will come back into the fold, James Toher, Michael Burke, Jack Regan, Sean Heavey

He said yesterday on the radio that he felt three years was enough, new voice needed & that he wanted to give some time back to his family etc.

Going to put my neck on the line here. Martin Ennis has way less of the blame to carry than others in relation to the James Toher incident. Michael Burke always put football first and that is his choice which I respect. Jack Regan and Sean Heavy did play under Martin, Jack got injured and did not find his way back on to the team which was then settling down into a sort of settled team/match day squad that proved equal to the task in 2016. Sean Heavy was part of the fore mentioned squad until this year and I believe left on good terms with both the squad and the manager.

Finally I want to thank Martin for his efforts, even though he had a few knock backs during his tenure he eventually got there and for that we all should be eternally grateful. I would also wish the new management team equal success but they will have a hard act to follow. Remember the "burn the hurleys" gang are still around and not doing a lot of good really but well capable of up-scuttling the efforts of the hurling people.
