The Meath Senior Football Championship is an annual Gaelic Athletic Association club competition between the top Gaelic football clubs in Meath, Ireland. The winners of the Meath Senior Football Championship winners qualify to represent their county in the Leinster Senior Club Football Championship and in turn, go on to the All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship. In the 2017 final, Simonstown Gaels defeated Summerhill 2-9 to 0-7 in the final.

There are three groups called Group A, B and C. The three top finishers in Group A and B and the first and second placed teams in Group C qualify for the quarter-finals. The three teams that finish last in their groups go through to a round-robin relegation play off. The loser gets relegated to the Intermediate Division.
