Gas, isn't it, never thought I'd see the day when a Dublin/Meath fixture attracts nothing more than a few zzzzzzzzzz's

I'd say it will at least break the 40,000 barrier. I'll say 45,326 :)

Meath are waiting in the long grass, nothing to lose. 2014 was a disaster for them and they will want to atone for it. Expect some haymakers into our full back line early as this our perceived weakness. I seen meath in the league v tyrone and whilst they got within a 5-6 points of them, they were simply outclassed on the day. Cillian O' Sullivan is a fine player and one to watch as everything runs through him. Graham Reilly will believe he is due a big game against us. As we have seen in the last couple of weeks, there has been a couple of big shocks in the championship so we are forewarned. Meath winning would be deemed the biggest upset in years and my fear is this would be the beginning of something new for them. Hopefully sunday will see the emergence of costello, o callaghan and mannion as real top class forwards that really are pushing for inclusion in the team. At the moment I would predict a 4-5 pint win for us.

Cheer up lads.I dont go to many Leinster games anymore but i'm looking forward to this one.Just to see how we cope with Meath's goal threat.The warning signs are very evident after the Laois game.Can we shore up the full-back line?Meath may very well be chasing the game on Sunday and may have little option but to go for goals.Our achilles heel may come back to haunt us against one of our main rivals later on in the year but Meath will give us a good test.Our free scoring forwards will compensate for any defensive frailties in Leinster,but lets try and keep royal goals to a minimum.Clean sheet if possible.

Meath had about 8 goal opportunties against Louth and failed to take any of them.Hope they are more clinical on Sunday!

Be great if Ireland do win , but personally i think they are useless with no leaders and will at best get a 0-0 . As for the Dublin game I'd imagine people who are going now will still go.

Loadsa people will change their plans if, a big if true, Ireland win.

Most of my mates have not got tickets for Sunday just yet. They'll all go on Sunday once there isn't a clash.

I've no doubt people who are waiting for the last minute could change their plans.
But people who go to Dublin games all the time , will still go.
But ye crowd would be down with the walk in support .
