Meath TD Helen McEntee has welcomed Meath County GAA Board’s decision that Pairc Tailteann will be the venue for future Ladies’ Football and Camogie finals.
“I compliment Dunshaughlin GAA Club for proposing that Ladies’ Football and Camogie finals will be held at Pairc Tailteann in future, and I welcome Meath County Board’s decision to accept Dunshaughlin’s proposal.
“On 19th September last I attended the Ladies’ Gaelic football finals between Clann na Gael and Dunboyne (junior); Dee Rangers and St Michaels (Intermediate); and Oldcastle and St Ultans (senior). The Ladies’ finals clashed with the official opening by the GAA President of Meath GAA’s Dunganny Centre of Excellence, which was a showcase and celebration of the GAA’s role in Meath. That clash should not have happened, and was very disappointing for some supporters of ladies’ GAA in Meath.
“The decision by Meath County Board this week that in future ladies’ finals will take place at Pairc Tailteann is a step in the right direction for Meath GAA, and demonstrates that ladies’ GAA will be at the front and centre of Meath GAA in the future. I congratulate Dunshaughlin GAA Club for its progressive proposal and I compliment County Board delegates for this progressive decision.”
