They say two out of three ain’t bad. When it came to winning their respective provincial championship games last weekend that’s how it panned out for the three Westmeath clubs in action. Garrycastle and Tubberclair recorded hard-fought and impressive wins in the senior and intermediate grades respectively while Caulry went down fighting, away to the Wexford champions.
Two Westmeath clubs go in search of a coveted place in a Leinster final this weekend. It has been a long and successful season already for the footballers of Garrycastle and Tubberclair but, without a doubt, all of their achievements up until now will pale into insignificance should either team win this weekend.
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.
It is better to have tried and failed than not to have tried at all. While the footballers of Garrycastle and Tubberclair will be disappointed this week to have fallen short at the final hurdle in Leinster, they can take solace in the fact that they did what very few club players ever get the chance to do - represent their club in a provincial final. In doing so they put Westmeath football back in the spotlight after an eminently forgettable year on the county scene.
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.
