Joe Sheridan is from County Meath. He plays with the Meath county team and with the Seneschalstown club.

He was part of the Meath team that made it to the 2002 All-Ireland Minor Championship Final but lost out to Derry.

He made headlines for scoring a controversial and illegal late goal in the 2010 Leinster Senior Football Championship Final. The goal stood and Meath got a 1-12 to 1-10 win over Louth.[1]

He won Meath Senior Football Championship medals in 2007 and 2009 with Seneschalstown.

In March 2012, Sheridan quit the Meath panel due to work commitments in Boston.[2] A month later it was announced that Sheridan was returning to the Meath panel in time for the championship 2012.[3]

Meath manager Mick O'Dowd axed him at the end of 2013.[4]

Through his association with Fianna Fáil he has met Elizabeth II and Michelle Obama.[5]
