Westmeath club draws: Derby opener for Shamrocks and Loman's

February 13, 2020

Garrycastle manager Gary Dolan celebrates with his son David.

The clash of Mullingar Shamrocks and St Loman's is the standout tie from the draw for the first round of the Westmeath SFC.

The neighbours are set for a championship derby opener in two months' time after being paired together in last night's draw.

Gary Dolan's Garrycastle, who completed a league-championship double last season, will begin their Flanagan Cup title defence against Rosemount, who are now managed by his cousin and St Brigid's All-Ireland winner Frankie. Close rivals Coralstown-Kinnegad and The Downs are also in the 'stronger' group.

In the county SHC, reigning champions Clonkill have Lough Lene Gaels up first in a bid for a three-in-a-row of Examiner Cups while Raharney and Castletown-Geoghegan will face Castlepollard and Devlin, respectively, in their opening fixtures.
