Meath - Meath clubs in Leinster

Replying To Northsidegaels:  "Think it certainly hit a low point a couple of years back when o mahonys won 2 in a row without anyone really laying a glove on them, there was a shortage of good teams then but that has definitely improved in the last couple of years. Your statement about summerhill winning 3 in a row nowadays is ridiculous really and pointless people in a few years time could point to a good dunboyne team not winning one at present and make the same arguement, Simonstown were very unlucky to lose to a good rhode team last year so dont understand the big panic on here"
The Dunboyne side today would not compete with the teams i mentioned. Overall point is standards have dropped steadily.

Getting away from the utterly tiresome bickering that seems to infest every single thread on here: Best of luck to NOM and Meath Hill at the weekend.
NOM have a hell of a task against the Kilkenny junior champions John Lockes. Kilkenny teams have won 13 of the 16 championships that have been played. Would be great to see them win, but I can't see it happening.
Meath Hill make their first appearance in Leinster against the Louth champions Glen Emmets. Meath Hill are slight favourites but it'll be very difficult I'd say.

Well said hopefully they can both do well only 12 senior clubs in kilkenny make the lower grades ultra competitive but o mahonys are as good an intermediate side as you'll see in meath so hopefully they perform well. Haven't a clue about the Louth champions what's the standard of junior football in Louth like?

The Glen Emmett's are from Tullyallen just outside of Drogheda. They are right on the Meath border. They would of been third fav's to win the Louth Junior Championship behind Roche and Glyde. They have reached five Louth Junior Championship finals in the past seven years. The only other time that they won the Junior Championship in that time was in 2012. On that occasion the Glens played Clogherinkoe from Kildare in the quarter-finals in the Leinster Junior Championship and lost by five points. Not too many Glens men have played with the Wee County. The most well known player is Conor Grimes. He is away for the year this season. He became the first Glens man to play with Louth in Croke Park in 2014 when Kildare trashed Louth. The men to watch out for the Glens is James Butler and Ronan Grufferty. No Louth club has won this competition but three have reached the final. In 2009 the Mochs were beaten by Longwood after a replay. In 2011 the Feckins were beaten by Ballivor. In 2013 Hunterstown were beaten by Kildare's Two Mile House.

NOM's game called off. I see Meath Hill's game suffering the same fate.
