Daly won't let Armagh girls take anything for granted

Armagh manager James Daly is hoping the fact that his side have held the whip hand over Westmeath in recent years will stand them in good stead when they renew rivalry in the All-Ireland Ladies Football Championship at Kingspan Breffni Park, Cavan, tonight (7.15pm).

"We have been lucky enough to get over Westmeath when we have met them but that guarantees us nothing," insisted Daly.

"The All-Ireland Championship is played with greater intensity than the league and the pressure is really on now."

Nonetheless, his side will be expected to march on and book an intriguing quarter-final meeting with recently-crowned Ulster champions Donegal, who are in hot form at the moment.

Meanwhile, Antrim face a stiff task in the All-Ireland Ladies Intermediate Championship against Wexford at Kinnegad today (3.30pm).

The Saffrons will go into action after a demoralising drubbing at the hands of Fermanagh in the Ulster final and will need to show a big improvement if they are to make an impact against Wexford, who have beaten London twice recently.

Also at senior level, neighbours Cavan and Monaghan will meet at Kingspan Breffni Park, Cavan, (5.15pm) with an All-Ireland quarter-final meeting with Dublin on offer for the victors.
