The quarter-finals of the Westmeath senior football championship are down for decision this Sunday with a double header in Cusack Park.
The pressure is mounting ahead of this weekend’s relegation finals in Westmeath’s senior and intermediate championship. Athlone and Tubberclair will battle it out in Tang on Saturday evening at 6pm. At the same time in Rosemount Moate and Ballinagore go head to head for the right to retain their intermediate status.
Finally something for Westmeath football folk to celebrate. Promotion back up to division two secured, thanks to a nail-biting win over Offaly, and a division three final in Croke Park on Saturday week to look forward to. After a slow start to the campaign the achievement is all the sweeter. Pat Flanagan and his team deserve credit for stopping the rot and getting us back to where I feel we ought to be, in the second tier.
Pat Flanagan may have dominated the headlines last week after being appointed as interim Westmeath manager, but this week it’s a different Flanagan that will be on the minds of the football fraternity of Westmeath as the race for this year’s Flanagan Cup gets under way in earnest. Maryland and Kinnegad kicked off this year’s action in Moate last Sunday but the remaining five games are down for decision this weekend. The intermediate championship also kicks off this weekend.
This Sunday Westmeath have their first outing in what will undoubtedly be a testing league campaign, when they welcome Galway to Cusack Park.
Badly in need of points if they are to have any hope of maintaining their division one status, Westmeath can expect nothing easy when they head west this Sunday to take on Mayo in round three of the Allianz National Football League.
Last weekend will live long in the memory of all Irish sports fans. First our grand-slam rugby heroes and then Bernard Dunne wrote their names into the history books. In doing so they gave the whole nation a timely lift. Unfortunately things didn’t run as smoothly for the football fraternity in both Westmeath and Roscommon, with both counties crashing out of their respective u21 championships, and both senior sides also being turned over.
