Best wishes to the girls in green

It is only a few short weeks since a Meath team sponsored by Bective Stud, Apartments and Tea Rooms climbed the famous steps of the Hogan Stand to receive a trophy and on Sunday afternoon we will hopefully be seeing another as the Meath Camogie panel go in search of glory in the Glen Dimplex All-Ireland Intermediate Championship.


Meath last won the All-Ireland Championship in 2017 when Cork were defeated after a replay and after suffering heartache at the final four stage for the last few years, hopes are high that this will be their year after Westmeath were defeated in the semi-final.


Speaking ahead of the big game on Sunday, Co. Board Chairman John Kavanagh passed on his best wishes to the panel.


“This is the sixth year in succession that Meath supporters have had the opportunity to see a womens team from the county play in an All-Ireland Final in Croke Park.  We all fondly remember the 2017 All-Ireland Final Replay which our camogie side won in Nenagh after drawing the first day out against Cork.  From 2018 to 2022 the womens football team ensured there were big days in Croke Park for All-Ireland Finals at both Intermediate and Senior level. 


We have been witnessing a huge growth in the playing numbers across the county as more and more girls pull on their club jersey as a result and every Meath Gael is looking forward to the latest big day out in Croke Park on Sunday when Meath go in search of another All-Ireland Camogie title. It would be fantastic to see Ellen Burke lead the team to glory and continue the marvellous run which womens teams in the county are currently on.  On behalf of Coiste na Mí C.L.G., I would like to wish all involved with Meath the very best of luck in the decider.”


Throw in on Sunday is at 14:45 and the game will be broadcast live on LMFM and on RTE 2.
