“You see things, and you say ‘Why?’ But I dream of things that never were and I say ‘Why not?’”, Anthony Cunningham’s men showed in Croke Park on St Patrick’s Day, that despite others dismissing their chances, they were not afraid to do like George Bernard Shaw and ask ‘Why not?’. Why shouldn’t they knock Crossmaglen off their perch andbe crowned all Ireland club champions?
Leinster club SFC quarter-final
Reigning champions Garrycastle look all set to make it three-in-a-row when they take on Mullingar Shamrocks in the county decider this Sunday. In a repeat of last year’s final Anthony Cunningham’s men will again be warm favourites to oblige and on all known form it’s difficult to see an upset here.
Garrycastle v Kilmacud Crokes (Sunday, 2.30pm, Parnell Park, TG4 4pm)
Last weekend saw winning performances from the green and red of both Garrycastle and St Brigid’s in their respective provincial campaigns. The Roscommon champions booked their place in this year’s provincial decider thanks to their hard fought win over a gutsy Glencar-Manorhamilton (Leitrim) side. Garrycastle too had to work hard to forage a win in Cusack Park against Louth’s Mattock Rangers.
Garrycastle v Mattock Rangers, Cusack Park, Sunday 2.30pm
It is better to nearly drown than to nearly be saved. Garrycastle footballers will well understand the meaning of this cliché following their lucky escape against Longford Slashers in Cusack Park last Sunday. Last year’s beaten provincial club champions were expected to clear the first hurdle in this year’s Leinster club campaign with a bit to spare but in the end were glad to have kept their heads above water.
Garrycastle begin their provincial club campaign with a home tie in Cusack Park on Sunday at 3.15pm. Having reached last year’s provincial decider expectations are high that the Westmeath representatives will again enjoy a protracted run in Leinster.
