The Bishop of Meath is an episcopal title which takes its name after the ancient Kingdom of Meath. In the Roman Catholic Church it remains as a separate title, but in the Church of Ireland it has been united with another bishopric.

Bishops during this period:

  • 1450-59 Edmund Oldhall, O.Carm. Appointed on 7 August 1450. Died in office on 9 (or 29) August 1459.
  • 1460-82 William Sherwood Appointed on 26 March 1460. Died in office on 3 December 1482.
