Meath players feature prominently for Ireland

Jamie McGrath from Athboy (9) in back row.

Jamie McGrath from Athboy scored a sublime goal as he chipped the goalkeeper from the edge of the penalty area to claim the Ireland’s second goal against Wales in the Centenary Shield on Thursday night.

The Irish Schools won by 3-0 in their first game in the Centenary Shield and can look forward to the next assignment against N. Ireland in the Showgrounds, Sligo on St Patrick's Day (Monday 17th March).

Scotland and Northern Ireland drew 1-1 in their first round tie. The other team in the group is England.

Following his penalty winner against Austria on Tuesday night, Georgie Poynton again played for the Republic of Ireland u-17s in a 1-1 draw in the second game against Austria on Thursday night in Malahide when he came on as a second-half substitute.

Adam McDonnell from Dunboyne played the full game.

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill was also at the game.

See next Meath Chronicle for details on these games.
