These are tough times for Westmeath as Paul Bealin’s team face a tricky All-Ireland senior football round 1B qualifier away to Cavan at Kingspan Breffni Park tomorrow (throw-in 3pm). Westmeath have suffered 12 Allianz Football League and Championship defeats in 13 fixtures, so arresting that worrying trend is what the Midlanders are tasked with. Derry (3), Dublin (2), Fermanagh, Cork, Kildare, Mayo, Tyrone, Kerry, and Louth have all outsmarted Westmeath, who haven’t recorded a win since May 19, 2013 when Carlow were dismissed 3-15 to 1-10.
Saturday evening’s Leinster Senior Football Championship clash at Mullingar proved to be the latest tale of woe for Westmeath.

With Kildare and Westmeath already relegated from Division 1 of the Allianz Football League, Sunday’s last group match is a chance for Paul Bealin’s team to avoid a seventh straight loss in the competition.
