The State Of Portlaoise Shows Why The O'Byrne Cup Final Was Called Off

The State Of Portlaoise Shows Why The O'Byrne Cup Final Was Called Off
By Arthur James O'Dea Updated

After a week of tumultuous talks in which concerns were raised over the well-being of their players, the O'Byrne Cup final between Meath and Westmeath was postponed today due to the insurmountable weather conditions.

Yet, today's respite is only going to intensify Meath's problems in the weeks the follow.

While those responsible for scheduling these pre-season fixtures will have plenty to answer for when a retrospective look at these series of games is carried out, for now, you may as well take some joy from the absolutely biblical state O'Moore Park in Portlaoise is in.
