Minor selection unveiled for Kinnegad showdown
Minor selection unveiled for Kinnegad showdown

The Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Football Championship gets underway on Wednesday and Meath face a short journey to Kinnegad where we meet neighbours Westmeath in a mouthwatering opening round fixture.


Stephen Morgan has unveiled his first match day panel for the Championship and there are two survivors from the team that played Longford in the opening round of 2022.  Cian Commons lined out at centrefield on that occasion with Michael McIvor at centre forward and on Wednesday evening they will form a strong midfield partnership.  Another member of the class of 2022 was Billy Smyth who was a panellist and he will line out on Wednesday at right half forward.
