GARRYCASTLE (Westmeath) v LONGFORD SLASHERS (Longford)
(Mullingar, Tomorrow 2.30)
To be forewarned is forearmed -- or is it? Garrycastle know all about their midland rivals after being pushed to within a point in last year's corresponding encounter.
By the same token, Slashers know all about Dessie Dolan who kicked an inspirational eight points that day.
Dolan displayed the same masterful form during Garrycastle's two-game county final duel with Mullingar Shamrocks; his enduring class and their unsated Leinster ambition can see them home.
ODDS: Garrycastle 4/9, Draw 7/1, Slashers 5/2
