What's the verdict on the Junior and Intermediate Finals yesterday. As a neutral for all teams, I really enjoyed the day.
St Lomans were unlucky in the end but killbegan kept fighting away and got the goal in the last minute. Good to see sole junior club winning it.
The Intermediate final was exciting given the conditions. Malachys were probably generally the better team but MTP fought back to draw. I can't understand how the referee gave a free for the last kick of the game for a pick up off the ground. Very very puzzled. Can't understand how he saw through a group of players to come to that conclusion. I think even the Malachys players were surprised. and then to blow it up on the kickout. Not easy job.
Any way into today. I'm shouting Shamrocks and Kinnegad.

Minor game finished a draw and goes to a replay. 2 late goals from Shamrocks.
Sun is shining so I'm predicting a comfortable win for Lomans. I thought a wet day and heavy pitch would give CK a chance but don't think they have enough tight marking backs to keep Lomans forwards at bay. Is Foy still suspended ? Big loss off the bench.

Intermediate a draw"
Should have been a draw how the reff seen a pick up off the ground is baffling with a wall of players around the ball poor decision on milltownpass

As the season finishes with club championship football in Westmeath what a poor poor county senior final we got. It definitely wont live long in the memory, one of the worst i have witnessed but Lomans wont care. Kinnegad had chances but lacking firepower....Lomans didn't even look up for the game & still won it in 2nd or 3rd gear. Huge Kinnegad support, Lomans barely celebrated at final whistle.....i think they needed to be playing the downs to avenge last year to be more up for the game & that's no disrespect to Kinnegad who were there on merit. Kinnegad still have alot of work to do to win a senior championship.
The intermediate was as close as expected, tough call at the end & gavigan nailed the free as he did in the semi final, fair play to Malachys, they won all of their games this year in championship.
Junior was another tight affair, Lomans were probably the better team but got caught at the end. Good to see a junior club win it though.
Good luck to all in Leinster campaigns.
Hopefully the hurling senior final will be a bit better next week.

Kinnegad lost a county final by 2 points. They competed extremely well with the favourites so how could they have a lot of work to do to win a championship. Surely minor tweaks needed

Kinnegad wait 25 years to get to a senior county final and then they put in a very lack lustre performance.,1 point in the first half and overall St.Lomans didnt have to get out of first gear to win a very poor final.But Kinnegad are a very young team and perhaps this season will stand to them going forward but they were very dissapointing today.

I don't think it was that their performance was lacklustre. Kinnegad had no shortage of intensity, work rate , etc. The problem was they had no idea how to get themselves in to scoring positions in the second half. Their gameplan worked defensively but they need to go to another level with it to beat a team like Lomans. They are young , almost all under 25, and have time.
Lomans will say that they are only now focusing on Leinster , but in reality that has been their aim all along. And especially when the draw , which is not had at all, was made.
Minor game was entertaining. Tubberclair will be kicking themselves not to close it out. Both teams have some very good footballers. Replay should be close again.
