Westmeath entered the annual U12 Leinster blitz which was held in Carlow on Saturday last; Westmeath had an early start with players leaving all parts of the county well before 7am and arriving in Carlow for a 9.15am registration. Westmeath’s first game was against Wicklow and they got off to a good start and recorded a win and took the 2 points. Immediately afterwards Westmeath took on Dublin and again played their hearts out and were rewarded with the 2 points. Westmeath then had a well-earned break and enjoyed their lunch and relaxed for a while to take in the beautiful sunshine before taking on Wexford in the third game of the round, while the girls fought hard and it was nip and tuck all the way through Wexford managed a late goal to deny Westmeath the points. 

At the end of the rounds three counties; Westmeath, Wicklow and Wexford were on the same points and to decide the finalists pairing, a champions league style shootout between the sides took place where 5 players were selected to take a 21 yard free with the top two teams going through. Five brave young players from Westmeath stepped up to the challenge namely Maria Farrell, Aine Gaynor, Caoimhe Brady, Francesca Walshe and Shannon Mulvihill and did their county proud when under severe pressure they earned Westmeath a place in the final against Wicklow.

The final turned out to be very exciting with both sides fighting hard for the title, however Wicklow managed to gain the edge and they emerged victorious leaving Westmeath to take runner up status. Captain Maria Farrell accepted the medals on behalf of the team and each player was presented with a t-shirt to mark the occasion. The Westmeath girls were superb all day long with each and every team member playing their part, the standard of football on display was excellent and the pride the girls showed was second to none doing their clubs and county proud and no doubt this is the start of a county career for many of these young players. A great day was had by all where new friendships were forged and the team parted after a well-earned meal in Portlaoise. Many thanks to the many supporters who travelled to Carlow to shout on the team and the County Board would like to thank the management team of Ann-Marie Scally (Shandonagh) Tommy O’Neill, Trish Dolan and Jackie Turley (Garrycastle) for their work with the team in advance and on the day.
