It wasn’t pretty but that won’t worry Pat Flanagan and co as he finally saw his Westmeath side secure a win for the first time since 2008. They say winning is a habit. Well so too is losing and one which Westmeath had become far too fond of.
Westmeath v Louth (Drogheda 2.30pm)
A - Athlone GAA Club celebrated their 125th year in existence. It was an honour for me to be captain 50 years on from the first of the famous six-in-a-row wins. Unfortunately we added no silverware at senior level. Making the knockout stages was progress and hopes are high that we can build on that in 2011. Our u14s won the Feile and u16s won the county title indicating a bright future for the club.
Leinster SHC semi-final
Having captured this year’s senior hurling title in dramatic style at the expense of Clonkill, Raharney face a difficult challenge when they entertain Offaly champions Coolderry this Sunday.
Raharney 2-14 Clonkill 1-16
Reigning champions Clonkill will be under no illusions about the serious challenge Raharney pose to their crown when the sides meet in this year’s decider. This is the second time in three years that the two clubs have met in the final and it was the men from Raharney who emerged on top two years ago.
This weekend is a big one for eight teamsfrom both sides of the Shannon as the semi-finals of the Westmeath and Roscommon SFC are down for decision. On the Leinster side Garrycastle and Mullingar Shamrocks will be many people’s idea of the most likely candidates to progress to the county final at the expense of Killucan and The Downs respectively. Across the bridge St Faithleach’s and Elphin will be hoping to upset the odds against their fancied opponents St Brigid’s and Castlerea.
Athlone were hoping to bridge a seven year gap by reaching the semi-final but came up against an ever improving Killucan outfit that had other ideas. Killucan had flagged their form with a 10 point win over Maryland in the previous round and after kicking 1-18 in this game they have to be seen as genuine title contenders.
