Great win yesterday in a championship atmosphere. Always difficult to get a win in Ulster. Could see the Louth team learning from game to game so hope to see it continue for Westmeath game. Wind seemed a bit erratic with cross winds near the goals and a downfield wind in the middle. Down keeper looked afraid to kick out the ball at times as he had little options. Louth have been up and down the divisions more times than a quare ones knickers. Will it happen again next Saturday? I hope so and if not it won't be lack of effort from the Louth squad that causes it.

Best of luck to my beloved Wee County today. Louth and Westmeath matches are always close and the winners only win by a couple of points. Today should be no different. Louth were the bookies favs to go down so wee are in bonus territory now. Louth beat the two favs to go up Down away and Laois in Croke Park. Westmeath are the favs to win today. I will go for a narrow Louth win today.

Delighted for Westmeath. Ref was poor apparently....

The ref was bad though. Penalty tackle was similar to Moran's on Canning in the hurling last week in Nowlan Park AND was outside the area. Three yellow cards for Louth yet Williams took a heavy hit in the back off the ball and I think the ref waved play on. Louth didn't take advantage of the first half chances and they will be hurting for a while. Overall, they were far more competitive and organised than the shambles of last year.

Great display of refereeing. I didn't see as good in many a long day.

Seriously Biler? Has to be a wind-up!

Louth had plenty of chances in first half but Westmeath definitely got easier frees.

Best of luck in the Final.

You'd have to go back to Pat McEnaney to find as good. He's one of the best on the go at the moment.

Laois by 4-6 points at 5/1 in bookies. I'd take that.

I'll leave it at that Biler.

He must be a relation. Apologies, he had an off day, much like our forwards! That is what disappoints the supporters. The team were given little chance this year but when they got so close, the chances were not taken. Hope springs eternal in our county.

Enjoy the game.

Will have to go for Westmeath for obvious reasons.

Good man RD, nice to see you shouting for your adopted county! Sure you might even make the trip up to Croke Park for it :-)

Well done Westmeath, had players like Heslin, Egan, Martin.

I can't remember a worse Laois performance. Slow, lateral. Brody's little sojourns forward finally showing up for the silliness they are. There's enough lads outfield. Timmons and Attride our only players.

Well done Westmeath on a fairly dominant win. Two trophies now for Jack Cooney who seems to really have the players buying in for him. Always rated the likes of Egan (who keeps improving), Heslin, Dolan and Kieran Martin. Very impressed by Wallace especially. Said it last weekend and during the week that while very impressed by Meath last week reaching a Leinster final be no gimme.

Congrats to our neighbours, Westmeath. The standard of play was poor though - much lower than the D 4 final, It's difficult to see either having much of an impact in the Leinster c'ship this year.

Brody needs to rethink his forays up the field. They have to have a purpose, too many yesterday seem to be just for the sake of doing it.
