Meath GAA

  • Former Meath footballer Colm O'Rourke has expressed his belief that GAA pitches could be opened in a 'controlled manner'.

    GAA president John Horan said two weeks ago that the return of gaelic games was unlikely while social distancing to help stop the spread of coronavirus is in place.

    O'Rourke is hopeful that the advice Horan is due to receive from his Covid-19 medical advisory group may change his views.

    He also believes that clubs should be allowed to start opening up facilities for its younger members with restrictions in place.

  • Mayo will have to dust themselves down from last weekend’s disappointing defeat in Killarney to focus for the Challenge of Meath in Croke Park this Sunday.

    A win is imperative for James Horan’s side if they are to have any chance in reaching the last four but standing in their way are the Royal County who will go hammer and tongs to try and cause an upset.

    The game is live on Midwest Radio Sport with Michael D. McAndrew and Martin Carney bringing you all the action as it happens.

    It starts at 2pm and our coverage is with thanks to JJ Burke Car Sales Ballinrobe.

  • Paddy Durcan looks set to miss Mayo's super-8 meeting with Meath at Croke Park.

    A thigh injury ruled the wing-back out of their defeat to Kerry last weekend.

    It is believed the injury will keep Durcan out of action for two to three weeks.

  • Tyrone referee Sean Hurson will be the man in the middle for Mayo and Kerry's opening Super 8's clash in Fitzgerald Stadium, at 4 o'clock on Sunday.

    The Red Hand official refereed the division two final between Donegal and Meath earlier in the year and will officiate the match between James Horan and Peter Keane's men.

    Kerry will look to avenge two league losses to Mayo this year in Tralee and in Croke Park in the league final, while Mayo will look to continue their momentum from the qualifiers and come one step closer to an All-Ireland semi-final place.

    Mayo will play Meath in Croke Park on the following weekend and will host Donegal at home in the final round of the last eight competition.
