After a hiatus of a couple of weeks it is back to the cut and thrust of the National Football League for John O’Mahony and his charges this Sunday. Westmeath are making the trip to Charlestown for the all ticket encounter which has been limited to a capacity of 3,000 as Mayo continue to play their games away from McHale Park as redevelopment works continue apace in the Castlebar ground.
Five games down and two to go for Mayo as they try to maintain their division one status in the National Football League. With a win and two draws under their belts they currently sit in the peculiar position of fourth place in the table, but due to the tight pack of three behind them, are not safe from the drop. Mayo are involved in a shoot out with Dublin, Donegal, and Tyrone to avoid being the side who join point-less Westmeath through the trapdoor to division two.
McHale Park will get its first airing this season on Sunday when the All Ireland champions Tyrone come to town for the final round of the Allianz National Football League. Mayo will be looking to pick up where they left off against Galway in Tuam Stadium a fortnight ago, where a stunning second half performance saw John O’Mahony’s side overturn a six point half time deficit to squeeze past Galway by a single point and secure a one point win. The win leaves O’Mahony’s side in fourth place in the division one table on six points, equal on points with Mickey Harte’s side. A draw on Sunday would ensure both sides’ status in division one for next season, but a defeat coupled with a high scoring win by Dublin over an already relegated Westmeath and a win by Donegal over Derry could drag either side back into the bottom two of a very tight division one table.
Westmeath’s All-Ireland campaign came to a premature end on Saturday evening at the hands of Meath in a wet and windswept Cusack Park, on a scoreline of 1-15 to 1-5.
After a prolonged spell of snow, frost and slush over the past few weeks, Kilkenny’s footballers will hope to begin their 2010 campaign a week later than planned with the visit of Offaly to Freshford on Sunday for their preliminary round clash in the O’Byrne Cup (2pm).
