WESTMEATH SFC FINAL
GARRYCASTLE v MULLINGAR SHAMROCKS
(Cusack Park, Tomorrow, 3.45)
FORMER Galway footballer Paul Clancy has carried on where an ex-Galway hurler left off by leading Garrycastle back to another county final.
But given all Anthony Cunningham achieved -- winning a hat-trick of Westmeath titles and last year's Leinster crown, then reaching this year's All-Ireland final -- the pressure may be on Clancy and his cause isn't helped by a hamstrung Dessie Dolan's race against time.
Shamrocks have the benefit of two extra games after being pushed to a semi-final replay by Loman's. They also have oodles of motivation, having lost the last two finals.
Something's gotta give.
ODDS: Garrycastle 2/5, Draw 15/2, Shamrocks 5/2 VERDICT: Garrycastle
LAOIS SFC FINAL
PORTLAOISE v ARLES-KILCRUISE
(O'Moore Park, Tomorrow, 3.45)
PORTLAOISE are one hour away from a six-in-a-row, and warmed up for tomorrow's showdown with a 2-17 to 0-4 semi-final rout of St Joseph's.
Maybe that was too easy, and maybe their arch-rivals from Arles-Kilcruise will finally suffocate the champions having lost back-to-back county finals in '09 and '10, and a quarter-final last year.
But while Chris Conway and Ross Munnelly will carry a huge burden of responsibility for Arles, it's hard to escape the belief that Portlaoise are too strong in too many places -- including the bench, from where Aussie Rules star Zach Tuohy is likely to be sprung.
ODDS: Portlaoise 1/5, Draw 9/1, Arles-K 9/2
