MEATH GAA HAVE confirmed that senior manager Mick O’Dowd is staying on for another year, while Martin Ennis will return as hurling boss

A statement issued on Twitter this evening read: “Meath County Board appoints Mick O’Dowd Football and Martin Ennis Hurling as senior managers 2016.”

O’Dowd’s side crashed out of the 2015 Leinster Senior Football Championship at the semi-final stage earlier in the summer, as a stunning comeback saw rivals Westmeath triumph 3-19 to 2-18.

They then lost out 0-11 to 1-10 against Tyrone in an All-Ireland Round 2 Qualifier.
