Meath population 195,044 in 2016 Census (3 time Ros or Monaghan)
Now very much an Intermediate team.
Where did it all go wrong lads and lassies?
80s and 90s they had a good batch of footballers and they were managed by a very wise head in Sean Boylan. Since Sean left things turned south, the quality of players no longer there and only recently they started improving things at county underage and club level.

I'd say it is not so easy to harness the commuter belt people that work in the city and moved out. That would be a big part of the current population. I am sure the competition from other sports is also much higher than it used to be. Still there does appear to have been an element in Meath football that didn't want to move with the times convinced that the Meath way could still overcome. Cavan thought the same leaving the 60s and crashed through the floor and are really struggling to be relevant again. Its a slippery slope to climb back up once you go down.

Everyone I know in Meath plays Rugby
Yet their parents would have all played GAA

We were due to play UCD in a challenge last night but was called off due to the bad weather, only had two very easy games this year that i know of, would have rathered a stiffer test and UCD game wouldve been ideal game before heading into the league.
