It has been quite a while since any Galway senior football team won three league games on the trot. However, there is an opportunity to do just that this weekend when Galway take on Meath this Sunday in Navan (2pm) in round four of the NFL.
They survived the loss of their inspirational full back Kevin Keane after just ten minutes, then lost their goalkeeper Patrick O’Malley to a black card with six minutes to go and conceded a penalty, which was converted and saw their lead pared back to three points, then two points and then one point as six agonising minutes of injury time seemed to take an age to tick by, but when the full time whistle was blown, the warriors from Westport were All Ireland intermediate champions.
It all began for Westport last May in Sean Duffy Park in Ardnaree, where they just about had enough to see off the challenge of the north Mayo men who themselves were only coming down from their own All Ireland adventure and on Sunday, it'll come to a conclusion in Croke Park, what a ten months it has been for Westport. They've moved on from their narrow 0-15 to 2-7 win over Ardnaree, to within 60 minutes of All Ireland final glory if they can get over Meath and Leinster champions, St Colmcille's.
Rosemount suffered Leinster Intermediate football final heartbreak following a thrilling decider against St Colmcille’s at Pairc Tailteann on Saturday (November 26).
Following their impressive and well-deserved victory over Derry in Celtic Park at the weekend, the Galway senior footballers face Meath in Pearse Stadium this Sunday (2pm) in round four of the National Football League.
