The county senior hurling final which is fixed for October 13 is set to be one of the most eagerly awaited in years thanks in no small part to St Oliver Plunkett’s shock win over hot favourites Clonkill last weekend.
Hurling takes centre stage this week with the two hurling semi-finals down for decision.
Delvin, Oliver Plunkett’s, and Castletowngeoghegan were the big winners in the three important hurling games last weekend. Delvin edged out Crookedwood by the narrowest of margins, 2-8 to 1-10 to retain their senior status for 2014 and in doing so consigned The Wood to intermediate hurling for next year.
Hurling takes the spotlight this weekend with two quarter-finals and the relegation playoff down for decision. First up is the relegation final between Delvin and Crookedwood which throws in at 6.30pm in Cusack Park on Saturday. Both teams lost their three group games and there won’t be much between them on Saturday. The Wood may just about have enough to shade it but will need to improve their scoring return having managed just nine points in each of their last two outings.
Lough Lene Gaels and Clonkill have booked their place in the semi-finals of this year’s Slevins Coaches senior hurling championship. The Gaels helped themselves to a 2-14 to 1-8 win over a disappointing Raharney while the reigning champions edged out Castletown Geoghegan in a thriller.
aLough Lene Gaels take on Clonkill in Cusack Park on Sunday at 5.45pm in the first of this year’s senior hurling semi-finals. Why it has to be played on an All-Ireland Sunday is another day’s work.
What an intriguing county final pairing this year’s Westmeath senior championship has thrown up. And what a final lies in store. In the green and red corner we have a Garrycastle outfit hungry to make amends for last year’s county final defeat to Castledaly. In the blue corner are the underdogs, St Loman’s, making their first county final appearance in 41 years. Indeed it was 1963 when the Saints won their third and last county senior title. Aside from the medals on offer, neither set of players will be lacking in motivation to play the game of their lives when the ball is throw in at 3.30pm.
