Donal Keogan – Meath may no longer dine at the top table of the football championship but in their star defender Keogan they have a player worthy of his place on this list of best defenders.
The swashbuckling defender spent much of his early Meath career playing the part of the man marker, designated to the opposition’s star forward, which resulted in his natural game being stifled.
These days though fans are used to the half-back marauding up the field, consistently aiding his attacking colleagues, adding another layer to the Meath attack. This form saw the Rathkenny man justifiably nominated for an all star in 2019, form Meath fans will hope can continue when 2020 All Ireland Championship finally gets underway.
