TEG Cusack Park in doubt for double-header

Heavy snow during last week’s ‘Beast from the East’ and Storm Emma weather event took its toll on all sporting events in Westmeath, while TEG Cusack Park, Mullingar was under more than a foot of snow during the height of the snowfall.

The weather led to the postponement of the entire National Football and Hurl ing League programme and last Sunday’s scheduled double header is now switched to next Sunday, 11 March, with the hurlers taking on Kerry at 1pm, followed by the footballers’ clash against Fermanagh (3pm).

Both games have been fixed for TEG Cusack Park, but it will be a tough task to have the pitch ready for Sunday’s double-header.
