Derry finished with a flourish to claim a critical Allianz Hurling League Division 2A success over Westmeath at Owenbeg.
A tough hurling year at senior level concluded in an exciting Westmeath win over Kildare in last Saturday’s promotion/relegation play-off at Cusack Park, Mullingar.
Cusack Park, Mullingar will provide the backdrop for Sunday’s revealing Leinster Hurling Championship round robin series fixture for Westmeath, who host Laois.
Westmeath have endured a difficult start in Division 2A of the Allianz Hurling League as Kerry eked out a narrow win at Cusack Park last Sunday.
In the opening game of this year’s hurling championship a physically stronger Antrim side exacted revenge for their defeat in the corresponding fixture last year against a game Westmeath side who gave as good as they got for much of the game.
