Meath squad announced last week. No one from O’Mahony’s and more from Rathoath than Simonstown is an eyebrow raiser. We won’t have Keoghan for the league. Ronan Jones, Paddy O’Rourke, Pauric Harnan, Joe Sheridan and Ruari O Coilleann all excluded themselves from the panel. Harry Rooney has returned from Australia at least

Quote
Eamon Wallace, Brian Power, Joey Wallace, Conor McGill, Bryan McMahon, Cian O'Brien (Ratoath)
Brian Conlon, Mark McCabe, Podge McKeever, Sean Tobin (Simonstown)
David Gallagher, Shane McEntee, Seamus Lavin, Donal Lenihan (Dunboyne)
Andy Colgan, Sean Curran, Bryan Menton (Ashbounre)
Paddy Kennelly, Conor Dempsey, Luke Martyn (Dunderry)
Robert Garry, Caolach Halligan, Donal Keoghan (Rathkenny)
Shane Glynn, Dan O'Neill, Thomas O'Reilly (Tones)
Biggie, Ben Brennan (Cillies)
Dave Toner, James McEntee (Curragha)
Alan Douglas, Luke Moran (Trim)
Harry Rooney, Eoghan Greene (Skryne)
Mickey Burke (Longwood)
Liam Ferguson (Kells)
Barry Dardis (Summerhill)
Adam Flanagan (Clonard)
Daragh Griffin (Athboy)
Adam McDermott (Dunshauglin)
Cillian O'Sullivan (Moynalvey).

Not seeing a whole lot of strength in that squad and so many places up for grabs and lads still yet to prove themselves that suggests we’ll be treading water at best this year but my gut feeling is we’ll be in the relegation mix up this year and Longford might well turn us over in Leinster.

Whatever about Eamon Wallace who at one stage looked like he had serious potential but I cannot understand how Joey Wallace can still make a senior intercounty panel.

No wonder the rest of Leinster is in a state if you think writing off a 22 year old is the smart approach..

I didn't realise he was still that young as he has been around a while but I stand by my point.

Why are they unavailable? Tubridy Sexton and Brennan are big losses especially.

McMahon got married and the others are injured. Majority are expected to miss first 3 league games. It gives them chance to blood new players as lack of bench cost them in league and Mayo last year

According to the Clare management they are all expected back for first game of the year?

Cleary, Brennan and Tubridy will all be fine for first round of league, bar picking up another injury in the meantime.
