After last year’s Leinster final success and an All-Ireland final appearance, Galway hurling supporters were hopeful that 2013 would be a positive year at senior level for the county.
A gutsy 0-16 to 2-9 opening round win over Louth last Sunday was the perfect start to the new season for Pat Flanagan’s side who look well placed to collect another valuable brace of league points when they make the short journey to Pearse Park, Longford this Sunday.
For the third year running Louth are the opposition as Westmeath begin their league campaign. This time last year remaining in division 2 was the main and seemingly doubtful goal. Twelve months on and the mood is far more optimistic with promotion a definite prospect if the team hit form. With that said there are no easy games in division 2.
Not again. That is surely the feeling expressed by both sets of players and indeed supporters when Louth and Westmeath were drawn against each other, yet again, for the first round of the qualifiers. This will be the seventh time in the past two years that the sides have met with the score standing 6-0 to the men from the Wee County. Even though Louth have made a habit of coming out on top there has never been very much between the sides.
Westmeath have drawn Louth in the first round of the qualifiers due to take place on Saturday week, June 30.
That most important element which even the best prepared and most successful teams need, a sprinkling of luck, was the only thing missing from Westmeath’s performance against Louth in Pairc Tailteann, Navan last Sunday.
The opening round of games of this year’s Shay Murtagh Precast Westmeath senior football club championship took place last weekend and there were plenty of talking points not least of which was Tyrrellspass’ draw with beaten all-Ireland finalists Garrycastle.
Just three weeks after failing in their bid to be crowned All-Ireland Club Champions Garrycastle are back in action this weekend as the first round of the senior club championship gets under way.
It’s semi-final time in the Westmeath senior and intermediate football championship with double headers scheduled for Cusack Park on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Westmeath footballers have a glorious opportunity of reaching this year’s Leinster decider despite a tough opener away to Wexford. The provincial draw has been very kind to them as they avoid the big guns of Dublin, Kildare, Meath, and Laois. If they can clear their first hurdle in Wexford Park tomorrow evening (Saturday) then they will face either Louth or Carlow in a semi-final. It is hard to look beyond a Louth win over Luke Dempsey’s men in that one and they would hardly instil fear in Westmeath.
