Kilkenny have broken Galway hearts many times over the years but Galway have also damaged the Black and Amber, including when they beat them in both the 2001 and 2005 All-Ireland hurling semi-finals.
We may still have a few weeks to wait before we reach the full height of the festive season but the football community of south Westmeath and indeed beyond will be hoping that both Garrycastle and Tubberclair can deliver an early Christmas present to the county. A Leinster title for either side would be a momentous achievement and, should they complete an unprecedented Leinster senior and intermediate club double, celebrations in south Westmeath would last well into the new year.
This Sunday the Leinster club final is well worth the trip to Tullamore to see Garrycastle take on Portlaoise at 2pm in what promises to be a top class game.
Several of Kilkenny’s star hurlers will face an added challenge this season following the implementation of a new rule making the wearing of helmets compulsory while playing hurling.
As a follow on from the county’s indoor hurling blitzes which have ran for the last number of years, the same type of activity is again being planned for this February by the Westmeath Coaching and Games Committee in conjunction with Cumann na mBunscol Iarmhí. The format will be similar to last year, with schools playing a series of games in a blitz with morning sessions running from 10am to 12pm and new schools involved playing in the afternoon session from 12.30pm – 2.30pm. Each school will play in one blitz with the option of a ‘Finals Day’ for each of the blitz winners. Hurling and camogie competitions will be run separately with Streete Community Hall and AIT again hosting the games.
