Reigning champions St Loman’s Mullingar guaranteed themselves a place in the quarter-finals of the Westmeath senior football championship with an eight point victory over local rivals Mullingar Shamrocks last Sunday afternoon.
The blue half of Mullingar will play Coralstown-Kinnegad in their final group game, which is sure to be a keenly contested affair as the winners of that match will go straight into the semi final, with the losers heading into a quarter final.
The winners of that match will join The Downs who have also gone directly into the semi final by virtue of topping the group after a 100% record to date.
After Loman’s win over Shamrocks, manager Declan Kelly was just pleased to have made it into the knockout stages of the championship.
