Replying To nobull456:  "A lot to agree with in your analysis of where we are at. I agree in particular with you when you say we are where we are since 2001. Interested to hear your take on why thats the case ,and also what you suggest as a means to move forward and improve from here.."
The problems Meath have had at inter county level is maybe linked to the club game in Meath. The senior club championship in Meath seems to be at a low standard compared to other counties based on our weak performances in Leinster club championship for many years. I'm not saying a county should organise the club championships to suit our inter county team, the main focus of club structures should be to suit clubs and club players. Personally I'd love Meath to adopt a Kerry model for the senior club championship, let junior and intermediate club teams combine and compete in the senior championship as a regional team (and play against senior clubs in the senior championship). The idea that every club player would then have a chance (if good enough) to play in senior championship appeals to me and I think junior and intermediate clubs would not begrudge their players getting a chance to play senior (may also help smaller clubs with big clubs trying to poach their players). It would be a very strong competition and playing in a higher standard senior championship would improve all the teams in it. A knock on effect of a competition like this is that we would have better players coming onto the county panel.

No, it's outdated now as the gradings seem to have changed. On the Meath site Rathkenny and Syddan have swapped leagues (Syddan now in Div 2, Rathkenny in 3) . Same with Summerhill and St. Colmcilles in divs 4&5. Division 5 is now 12 teams instead of 10, with Cortown and O'Mahonys bumped up from div 6.

Replying To Sheridan2010louth:  "Not sure if people noticed this on sunday but Jason Scully was on the 26 man panel. It wasn't officially announced but he came in late for Daire rowe. Would be great to see him get some game time against Cavan. Think he would add something to this meath team."
I think that it may have been announced. We were on the terrace and there was an announcement that I barely heard but it did include the number 26.

Meath 20'S - 1 Like(s)
Congratulations to Ashbourne secondary school on making the all Ireland B final. I expect a few of that team to be involved with our 20's. 7 guys from Don/Ash and 1 from St Vincent's on the starting team, 7 from Fingal Ravens but we won't hold that against them when they're representing a Meath school :). Brilliant to see a Meath school going well. I'd love to see another Meath school or 2 be able to make the step up to Leinster A level alongside Navan to give us another pathway for players to play at a level above club level, I think it would help our under 20's and consequently our seniors

id usually go but bit busy farming these days this time of year, always a lovely ground to go to , i never seen meath lose there actually against a neutral county, even beat kildare in hurling there once i think, christy ring semi final or something. I cant see us winning though, mad statistic Meath havent beaten Cavan in Breffni park since 1965, thats almost 60 years.

A bit optimistic of me maybe, but with the draw between Armagh and Donegal at weekend does that leave Meath with a chance of promotion if they win their final 3 games? (it's a big if i know). If we can get over a good Cavan team, we have Cork at home and then who knows? Set up a potential shoot out with Donegal on the last day. I know it's unlikely, but nice to see us in the position with three games to go of having promotion in our own hands. Up the Royals!

Not too optimistic. Cavan have always been a stumbling block for the best of Meath teams. And in Breffni much more so. We have a nice young team, short on some of their bigger players, but they have some credit in the bank from winning the Tailteann and getting back to back wins against Louth and Kildare. This game could and should be reasonably close but I think winning could be a step beyond Meath at present, however I think they can beat Cork and look for a good showing against Donegal.

You'd imagine the likes of Evan O'Kane and Michael O'Sullivan will possibly get the call, maybe Oisín Daly and Michael MvIcor as well.
