TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Championship semi-final
Roscommon v Westmeath – Glennon Brothers Pearse Park, Longford, 1pm – Live on LGFA Facebook
Both of these counties have appeared in previous TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Finals – Roscommon in 2005 and Westmeath six years later.
The winner of this dual will prevail to meet Clare or Meath at Croke Park on December 20th in the final.
Roscommon have fallen at the penultimate hurdle in 2018 and 2019 – beaten by Meath on both occasions.
For Westmeath, the motivation is to regain Senior status at the first attempt, following last year’s relegation.
Both teams have been impressive to this point, Westmeath putting Leinster opponents Louth and Longford to the sword, while Roscommon also got past two Leinster teams, Wexford and Offaly.
For Roscommon, Aimee O’Connor is their leading scorer with a 0-5 haul and the Westerners will need a very strong display to compete with a Westmeath side that will start as favourites.
