The 2019 Meath Senior Football Championship is the 127th edition of the Meath GAA's premier club Gaelic football tournament for senior clubs in County Meath, Ireland. 18 teams compete, with the winner representing Meath in the Leinster Senior Club Football Championship. The championship starts with a group stage and then progresses to a knock out stage.

St. Peter's Dunboyne were the defending champions after they defeated Summerhill in the 2018 final to claim their third S.F.C. crown.[1]

This was Longwood's return to the top flight for the first time in 76 years after claiming the 2018 Meath Intermediate Football Championship. Longwood last won the I.F.C. in 1942 and after spending one season in the senior grade in 1943, they were regraded to the J.F.C. for 1944.[2]

The draw for the group stages of the championship were made on 4 March 2019 with the games commencing on 4 April 2019.

Championship Structure Change Proposals[edit | edit source]

In 2019:[3]

  • 3 teams shall be relegated from the S.F.C. to the I.F.C. in 2019. The 2019 I.F.C. champions will be promoted to S.F.C. for 2020.
  • Relegation from the S.F.C. shall be decided as follows - the teams that finish in fifth and sixth places in each Group A, B, and C each play one relegation game. The loser of each game will be relegated to the I.F.C. for 2020. The draw for the Relegation Play-Offs will be pre-determined as follows - A5 -vs- B6; B5 -vs- C6; C5 -vs- A6. In the event of a relegation game finishing level, extra-time will be played and if still level then the game will go to a replay.

In 2020:

  • The S.F.C. shall contain 16 teams drawn in rotation into four groups each containing four teams. The top two teams shall progress to the quarter-finals, the bottom two in each group shall contest the relegation quarter-finals.
