The 1971 Meath Intermediate Football Championship is the 45th edition of the Meath GAA's premier club Gaelic football tournament for intermediate graded teams in County Meath, Ireland. The tournament consists of 24 teams. The championship starts with a group stage and then progresses to a knock out stage.

Oldcastle were relegated from the S.F.C. the previous year.

This year marked St. Colmcille's first year in existence as a club as Intermediate club Star of the Sea and Junior club Shallon amalgamated in the early part of 1971.

Ratoath and Cortown were promoted after claiming the 1970 Meath Junior Football Championship title and Junior 'A' Divisional runners-up spot respectively. This was only Cortown's second season in existence after being formed in 1969. Kilberry were also promoted from the J.A.F.C.

On 24 October 1971, Ballivor claimed their 2nd Intermediate championship title when they defeated Moylagh 3-2 to 1-5 in the final in Pairc Tailteann, and thus returned the top flight of Meath club football.

Ballinabrackey, Bellewstown St. Theresa's and Cortown were relegated to the 1972 J.F.C. Salesian College Warrenstown also stopped fielding teams in the Meath football championships at the end of the year.
