Westmeath and Louth will be an interesting semi if both get there. Is there any scenario Louth will be out of Sam? Westmeath will be looking to reach the final obviously. 

It'd be a decent competition this if the Dubs weren't in it.

If Louth fail to make a provincial final and Down make the Ulster Final.

That would put Louth more than likely into the Tailteann Cup.

Have they decided on a venue if Dublin v Meath transpires?

We're going to bring home the SAM

Longford vs Dublin will be in Longford. Meath vs Dublin will be in Croker as far as I know.

I think we're too strong for Longford and we have a more settled team now than last year. Having a crack at the Dubs will be good for these young lads to prove themselves. After that they'll have a taste of what the levels needs to be for All Ireland success.

It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Do you think Meath have improved much since last year?

Enough to beat Longford anyway.

If we play smart against the Dubs and don't give the ball away needlessly we might stay with them for an hour but we need everyone back from injury and performing at our best. We rattled them in 2021 but haven't got back to that level since.

If we play to our typical league form we'll be steam rolled.

I have noticed that They seem to have become more defensive in their 2nd year under o'Rourke.
His experiment of  90s style football appears to have been abandoned.

Are the Dubs any good this year?
Offaly Meath would be an entertaining semi.

Not great, they couldn't get past one of them ould nordie teams the other day.

I fancy Laois to beat Offaly. Offaly no great this year.

Offaly have failed to push on with the U20's.

Looks like it will be a false dawn.

imtommygunn

It's not that many years ago they won that though. (However I think the ones who are hurlers too will likely choose hurling)

Is hurling the bigger game in Offaly though?

Always thought Offaly was more of a football county but not by a massive majority. A bit like Laois or Carlow.
