Jason Keelan: Major moments for minor sides

It was one year ago on 21st March 2023 when goals from Matthew Whittaker and Brían Cooney gave Westmeath an Under 20 victory away to Kildare in the opening round of the Leinster Football Championship. This was followed by a win over Wexford before neighbours Meath disposed of us in the quarter-final. Meanwhile, Kildare went on. And on. And on. And then they were crowned All-Ireland champions. Their only loss was to the men in maroon.
