Meath - 2017 Fixtures planner

There might be a reasonably accurate updated fixture planner on the way shortly for the rest of the year? It worked well for the start of the year and has only become not relevant the last couple of weeks?

All gone wrong for the fixtures committee. Earlier this year the county was lauded as one who had a well operating system in place, compared to other counties. Since then it's become a farce. The planner has totally gone out the window and no one has a clue when they are playing next.

I thought it was a reasonably good guide for the first half of the year for something that was released months ago. With meath football team in qualifiers, hopefully we will get a new planner in the next couple of weeks that let's us know how it will roughly pan out fixture wise.

In fairness to the fixture makers, how can they plan for anything 6 months in advance when Meath's games are only scheduled a week or 2 in advance? At the time the planner was made the only thing set in stone was that Meath would play a Leinster quarter final on the 4th of June, how could they plan a whole summer's worth of fixtures around that?

we all know its a near impossible job but why even try to make it past June. This is just frustrating people even more. A planner should have been made up to meaths first game. After this it should be stated that there will be no championship until meath are knocked out. By releasing a planner and then going back on it is more frustrating for players who have holidays booked.

They used to do it in 3 month stages and to be fair tried it for 6 months and stuck to it till mid June. It seems bringing forward the Leinster semi by a week really caused the problem as well as the moving of Leinster JFC to a Sunday
I think it was drawn up with the best of intentions but Leinster caused the change which was probably the worse time of year to have to do it
