Garrycastle sent out a firm warning last weekend that they are serious contenders for Leinster club glory with an eye-catching 14 point win over a disappointing Longford Slashers side. While manager Anthony Cunningham will be happy that his side bagged an impressive 4-11, he would probably have preferred a sterner test for his charges. Slashers looked like a side which had regressed since they collected their second Longford title in a row nine weeks ago and a long way off the side that ran Garrycastle to a point in the corresponding fixture last year.

Reigning champions Garrycastle look all set to make it three-in-a-row when they take on Mullingar Shamrocks in the county decider this Sunday. In a repeat of last year’s final Anthony Cunningham’s men will again be warm favourites to oblige and on all known form it’s difficult to see an upset here.
Reigning champions Garrycastle remain on track to complete their hat trick of titles as they withstood the spirited challenge of Tyrrellspass in an entertaining contest last weekend. The final scoreline of 2-17 to 2-08 is a little harsh on a game Tyrrellspass side who trailed by just three points with a little over 10 minutes remaining. Ultimately though Anthony Cunningham must have been pleased by the manner in which his troops pulled away in the end to book their place in the decider which is scheduled for October 2.
Galway u-21 hurling boss Anthony Cunningham knows what it is like to be defeated in an All Ireland final at this level after last year’s mauling at the hands of Tipperary.
Fresh from their confidence boosting win over Carlow in the preliminary round, Westmeath hurlers face a mammoth task as they welcome Galway to Cusack Park on Saturday evening. With Galway touted by many as strong all-Ireland contenders, a home win would be a shock of seismic proportions.
