I mentioned yesterday that we have a challenge match with Westmeath tomorrow night and now, with my thanks to Mick who was able to find out more about the event today from a well-placed source within the Westmeath camp, I can fill you in on the where and when. The match will take place at the St Loman’s club pitch in Mullingar (here it is – as you can see it’s just off the N4 so is very easy to get to, especially from this side of the world) and throw-in is set for 7.30 pm. I’m half-thinking of heading down to it – seeing as I didn’t make it across the Atlantic last weekend – but I’m not 100% sure yet as to whether I will or not.
Back in the camp to face our jet-lagged heroes will be the Lake County’s best forward (one of the better forwards in the whole country, in fact): hot on the heels of yesterday’s Indo article which claimed that Denis Glennon had opted out of the inter-county panel came a report in today’s edition saying that he’d rejoined it. Glennon is quite a talent – as this effort in the league against Tyrone confirms – and his presence in the Westmeath side would make the match a more meaningful affair so let’s hope he lines out for the Lake County tomorrow evening.
