Lightning isn’t supposed to strike twice but unfortunately for Westmeath footballers their dismal showing in Wexford was repeated in Casement Park last Saturday as they were put to the sword by an Antrim side.
The score line says it all. Wexford were simply in a different class to a Westmeath side which had no answer to the movement and scoring power of their opponents. With a few notable exceptions Westmeath were outclassed in almost every sector of the field.
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.
Ireland is an entrepreneurial nation. We have earned a strong reputation for our work ethic and ability to turn ideas into money-making industries. During these tough economic times, people are being encouraged to act on their entrepreneurial instincts and not give up. Caroline Gordon acted on her entrepreneurial instincts 15 years ago this May bank holiday weekend, having opened her accountancy practice in Swinford on Tuesday, May 7, 1996.
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.
Westmeath u21 footballers take on Longford under lights in Pairc Tailteann, Navan next Wednesday night in the semi-final of the Leinster u21 championship. Longford had been granted home advantage but with no suitable venue under lights have opted to play in Navan. I’m sure most Longford supporters would have been happier to see the game played in St Loman’s or Athlone rather than having to make the long trip to Navan midweek. Another example of common sense GAA style.
