History was made in Croke Park when Westmeath came back from the dead to record a first championship win in history over neighbours Meath yesterday.
It took 23 attempts, but the Lake men finally got one over the Royals and for one avid Westmeath fan, it was all too much as he let loose with an epic dance in his kitchen.
Watch the clip here:
We have to hand it to the GAA. Despite all the laments about a one-sided championship and domination by large counties, what we witnessed in Croke Park yesterday during the Meath versus Westmeath Leinster semi-final could only come from an organisation like the GAA.
The lost province threw up quite a commotion without ever angling towards any woolly-headed notions of Dublin being close to abdication. We got something that hadn't been seen since Cusack and the boys called order in Hayes's Hotel. But Westmeath's first championship defeat of Meath had the air of bridesmaids wrestling over a tossed garter. It was epochal in a strictly local way.
