Ex-Meath selectors to lift lid

The two Meath selectors who resigned prior to the championship are prepared to make detailed statements outlining why they took the action they did, Meath County Board heard last night, writes Colm Keys.

The delegates from Liam Harnan's club Moynalvey and Barry Callaghan's club Dunderry confirmed that in the interests of clarity they would be prepared to outline the reasons for their departure.

It was the first discussion to take place at board level since the departure of both men in late May when Graham Geraghty was recalled to the squad.

Seamus McEnaney is expected to continue on as manager.

Paddy O'Rourke looks set to extend his time in charge of the Armagh football team by another year.

An executive meeting of the board was expected to approve a further 12 months for the former Down All-Ireland-winning captain.

That approval will have to be rubberstamped by a full county board meeting, which will not convene until September.

The proviso is that he makes changes to his back-room team.
