After yesterday's shock in Ulster how could you not be optimistic about today? It's a tad bigger shout to suggest that Westmeath could pull a Down but the qualifiers in both football and hurling have been more exciting than any other year in recent memory.
The Lions may not have gotten past the All Blacks yesterday but Sean O'Brien can certainly be proud of the try he scored, the Carlow man's finishing off of that insane team try might just be the start of a great sporting weekend for Carlow who are looking to get past London in the football and pull off a shock against Laois in the hurling.
Follow all the action right here where we'll be keeping an eye on Carlow's escapades along with the rest of the qualifiers and provincials today.
