There’s no denying that Meath have made progress under Andy McEntee this year but the bottom line remains that they have nothing to show for their efforts after two Super 8 fixtures.
Like their opening game against Donegal in Ballybofey, the Royals ran Mayo close for a long period of yesterday’s Croke Park clash but fell off the pace in the home straight and finished nine points in arrears.
“We've made progress, but it's a pretty tough learning place and we've got to go and get better,” McEntee outlined to GAA.ie.
“Maybe it's experience, there's a lot of young fellas on the field. There were a lot of lads that were sub-24 out there at the end and maybe you have to go through this learning experience to get out the other side.
“What I do know is we have to be better for longer. That's us done and dusted as regards competition.
“But as regards performance, we have another game and fellas will be looking forward to playing another game of that standard.”Tweet
