On the field of play, last weekend provided further evidence that Mayo are one of the teams to beat this year. They have a better balance up front with Aidan O'Shea in at full-forward, and they carry much more penetration in their inside forward line with the Breaffy man in there. What county defender can stop the Breaffy man in one-on-one combat?
Saturday night in Pairc Tailteann will be Westmeath’s next Allianz Football League Division Two examination, but Tom Cribben’s side will make the short journey to Navan encouraged by last Sunday’s stirring win over Kildare.
The Galway footballers will head to Cusack Park in Mullingar on Sunday in good spirits to take on Westmeath (2pm) in the second round of the National Football League.

Two second-half Westmeath goals in Ballymahon enabled Tom Cribben’s improving team to defeat neighbours Longford by 2-11 to 0-10 in the Bord Na Mona O’Byrne Cup on Sunday.
Westmeath make a welcome return to competitive inter-county action on Sunday, January 4 when hosting Meath in the Bord Na Mona O’Byrne Cup.
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.
I was in Aughamore with Crossmolina for a challenge match against the local club last Friday night. It was an opportunity for both sides to have a workout as they try to shake off their winter coats before the commencement of the league in a few weeks time. Aughamore have really impressive facilities and their flood lit pitch, in particular, is a credit to everyone involved up there. We were delighted with the opportunity to stretch the legs, after a number of weeks of circuit training, against a young talented team that have caught the eye in recent times. The underage structure in Aughamore is very obviously paying dividends at senior level and having seen them up close I now appreciate that they will have no problem whatsoever in mixing it with some of the big boys in the senior championship later this summer. Incidentally they were deserving winners on the night.
