Meath county hurling team

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Meath county hurling team represents Meath in hurling and is governed by Meath GAA, the county board of the Gaelic Athletic Association. The team competes in the Joe McDonagh Cup and the National Hurling League.

Meath's home ground is Páirc Tailteann, Navan. The team's manager is Nick Weir.

The team has never won the Leinster Senior Championship, the All-Ireland Senior Championship or the National League.


Meath has twice held half-time leads over traditional hurling counties in the quarter-final of the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship (SHC): over Dublin by a scoreline of 2–2 to 1–1 in 1936 and Kilkenny by a scoreline of 2–6 to 1–6 in 1949.

In 1951, the county held Wexford to a draw in the quarter-final but lost the replay; Wexford went on to win the Leinster SHC and join the elite.

Having beaten Offaly to qualify for their ninth and last Leinster SHC semi-final in 1954, Meath regressed until it won the 1985 Kehoe Cup and the 1993 Senior B title.

After the county re-entered the senior championship in 1994, its exploits included victories over Offaly (All-Ireland SHC champions at the time) by a scoreline of 1–12 to 1–11 in a February 1995 National Hurling League match in Athboy and Wexford by a scoreline of 1–16 to 0–16 a fortnight later in Enniscorthy.

On 11 July 2009, Meath won the final of the Nicky Rackard Cup at Croke Park, beating London by a scoreline of 2–18 to 1–15, thus promoting the county back to the 2010 Christy Ring Cup.

On 4 June 2016, Meath won the final of the Christy Ring Cup at Croke Park against Antrim by a scoreline of 2–18 to 1–20, despite trailing the Ulster squad by as much as six points at times. However, the score actually finished 2-17 to 1-20, a draw. So despite Meath being presented with the Christy Ring Cup, a replay was ordered.[1][2][3] The replay took place at Croke Park on 25 June 2016. After normal time, the result was 3–15 to 4–12, another draw. Meath eventually prevailed after extra-time by a scoreline of 4–21 to 5–17, a Stephen Clynch free with the last puck of the game sealing Meath's first ever Christy Ring Cup and a place in the 2017 Leinster Senior Hurling Championship, the county's first appearance in the championship since a double scores defeat to Laois in mid-May 2004. The county secured a surprise victory against Kerry in its opening Leinster SHC match.[4]

Meath then won the Division 2B title, defeating Wicklow and earning promotion to Division 2A for 2018.[5]

On 22 June 2019, Meath won the final of the Christy Ring Cup against Down at Croke Park by scoreline of 4–19 to 2–15.[6] This was Meath's second Christy Ring Cup in three years. The win meant Meath would play in the 2020 Joe McDonagh Cup.
