Reigning champions St. Lomans had to allow for extra reserves as they saw off the stern challenge provided by Athlone in Hogan Park, Moate on Sunday evening. Reduced to 14 players midway through the second half, Luke Dempsey's charges could have succumbed to intense Athlone pressure at this time and when Ryan Gaffey pointed to put the Shannonsiders in front, it seemed that St. Lomans were facing a rare Westmeath senior football championship loss.
Following their impressive 0-19 to 0-16 win over Kildare in Newbridge in the quarter-final round robin games, the Galway senior footballers will face Dublin, Tyrone or Donegal in the All-Ireland semi-final on the weekend of August 11/12.

The shadow boxing and experimenting has come to a close, with the end of the FBD League last Sunday for Mayo. This weekend Mayo will make the trip to Clones in the reverse fixture of last year's National Football League opener which was won by the Farney county men in MacHale Park. The top division in the National Football League is a high intensity environment — Mayo want to hit the ground running and they will be targeting a win in this game.
With respect to the FBD league Mayo's season kicks off in earnest this Sunday when they travel to Clones to take on Monaghan in the first round of the National Football League. The FBD was somewhat of a calamitous affair this year with the weather playing puck with fixtures resulting in postponements and last minute cancellations. The decision to call off the Mayo v Galway game at the 11th hour the most frustrating postponement, as almost 3,000 spectators had gathered in Baltic conditions in Elverys MacHale Park. Most wondered why the decision was not made earlier. That re-fixture meant Mayo of course had to play three games in five days, two of which were lost while the other was a draw. Amazingly last weekend Mayo's game went ahead against Sligo albeit after a venue change. It was the only inter county game that took place last Sunday.
