Don't you mean GAA stars tainted by association with foreign code.
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Brendan Murphy - goalkeeper for Meath and formerly Wimbledon.
Gary Rogers - goalkeeper for Meath and various (nearly every?) League of Ireland soccer club.
Ger Robinson - forward for Meath and formerly Middlesbrough (reserves).
Darragh McNamara - forward for Meath Juniors and formerly Drogheda United (a.k.a. the dregs).

Xabi Alonso, (Real Madrid and Spain) played football at club level with Kells but never made the grade at county level. He does still shout for Meath, but finds it hard to get to O'Byrne Cup and league matches during the soccer season.

Socrates played Trench Cup for Trinners, I believe.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

4. Kevin Moran
5. Gerry Mc Elhinney

6. Martin O'Neill

Surely, Con Martin would be in the back 4.  Val Harris won an All Ireland with Dublin before playing for Liverpool and Ireland.  Both have stronger credentials than a few of your team/
