Westmeath footballers got their 2013 season off on the right note with a comfortable win over Athlone IT in Hogan Park, Moate last Sunday. While the O’Byrne Cup is far from the Holy Grail, it is still a worthwhile competition for blooding new talent and an opportunity for more established players to shed the winter cobwebs.
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.
Pat Flanagan has already made no secret of the fact that his side’s best chance of maintaining division two status is to win their home games. Not surprisingly then this Sunday’s game against Monaghan has to be seen as a six-pointer.

This weekend sees the quarter-finals of the Westmeath senior football championship down for decision. Cusack Park will host a double header on Sunday evening with the prize on offer a place in the semi final where Garrycastle and St Loman’s lie in wait.
There was plenty of action last weekend in both the Westmeath senior and intermediate football championships. Mullingar Shamrocks again highlighted their intent for the year with a 3-19 to 1-8 hammering of Maryland. Bunbrosna edged out Athlone by a point in a low scoring affair in Moate while Garrycastle had little trouble in seeing off the challenge of a disappointing Downs side.
Westmeath’s draw with Cavan last weekend may have ended their losing run which stretched to 15 consecutive league games but a much improved performance will be needed if we are to collect both points on offer in Semple Stadium on Sunday. With only a few minutes remaining Pat Flanagan’s men looked as though they were heading for a long overdue win, only for Cavan substitute Gearoid McKiernan to fire over a brace to secure the draw.
Westmeath’s eight point defeat away to Louth last weekend in the opening round of the National League has turned up the heat as they prepare to welcome Cavan to Cusack Park on Sunday. Hopes were high ahead of the trip to Louth that, even allowing for the difficult nature of the opening encounter, the losing run could be arrested. If we are to retain any hope of promotion a win on Sunday is a must.
