Westmeath Defeat Fermanagh By Two Points

Lake County joint top of Division Two table

Storm Ciara took it's toll on sporting fixtures over the weekend with several games called off.

In Division 2 the match between Laois and Cavan and the Division 3 clash of Offaly and Louth fell victim to the weather.

However the match between Westmeath and Fermanagh at TEG Cusack Park in Mullingar went ahead and it resulted in an excellent two point win for the Lake County 10 points to 8 and it leaves Jack Cooney's men joint top of the table along with Armagh on four points.

The team manager was very proud of the battling qualities shown by his players in difficult positions:

On Saturday Offaly's U-20 footballers beat Louth by 2-6 to 0-9 in the Eirgrid Leinster championship in Drogheda.

In the Lidl Ladies National Football League all the matches involving local teams were called off except for the Division four clash between Offaly and Derry which saw Offaly win by 3-8 to 0-8.

The games in the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie League involving local teams were also called off.


Elsewhere Dublin sit top of Division One of the Allianz Football League after the weekend's action.

Tyrone beat Kerry 14 points to 13 yesterday while Galway also beat Donegal by a single point in Letterkenny where the final score was 2-8 to 2-7.

Dessie Farrell's side are therefore top on goal difference. 

Elsewhere yesterday, a late Kevin McLoughlin goal at Páirc Tailtean saw Mayo beat Meath 1-9 to 2-5.
