McEnaney: Meath can be successful

Meath's new manager Seamus McEnaney believes the quality of his backroom team and the playing talent available to him can help him bring success back to the Royal county.

"I have brought with me a very high standard of a backroom team, especially Liam Harnan - a true legend in Meath.

"And Liam Harnan is exactly today like he was in the 80s - a no-nonsense approach, no grey area, you know where you stand, and I'm looking forward to working with Liam Harnan, the rest of my backroom team and this group of players," he said.

Former Monaghan boss McEnaney also said he always understood the position of those within the county who were opposed to the appointment of an outsider.

"I certainly studied form before I decided to let my name go forward for this Meath job," he told RTE.

"I knew that this is a huge decision for the Meath County Board, the clubs of Meath and the people of Meath to go outside to pick a manager. I respect the opinion of Meath people that didn't want to go outside Meath for a team manager. I totally respect that but what I would be saying now is that we need to get on with the job here."
