Antrim to have too much for Carlow

ALL-IRELAND SHC QUALIFIER PHASE 1: ANTRIM v CARLOW (Casement Park, Today, 5.0)

IN any other year, one might fancy Carlow to pick up a second championship win in their maiden Liam MacCarthy apperance but there's something stirring in Antrim just now.

They were both skilfull and dogged in their Parnell Park showdown with Dublin and even if the long gap will have blunted the competitive senses, they should have too much at home for Carlow.

ODDS: Antrim 1/4, Draw 14/1, Carlow 3/1 VERDICT: Antrim



WESTMEATH SET FOR CROKER TRIUMPH

CHRISTY RING CUP FINAL: KERRY v WESTMEATH (Croke Park, Today, 4.0)

JUDGING by the ease with which Carlow have settled into the Liam MacCarthy Cup, both of these teams will be eyeing a spot in the top flight with a win here. Westmeath dual star Paul Greville makes his second appearance in Croke Park in a week after kicking 0-5 (2f) for the footballers in last week's Leinster SFC semi-final defeat to Louth.

ODDS: Kerry 6/5, Draw 10/1, Westmeath 4/5 VERDICT: Westmeath
