mcguirK: Dubs awake for west' heady xxx

Dublin's minor hurlers will hope to put a smile back on the collective faces of the county's hurling fraternity when they face Westmeath in their Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Hurling Championsip semi-final in Cusack Park, Mullingar next Saturday (3.0).

After the disappointment of shattering reverses for both Dublin's U21 and senior teams over the past fortnight, the U18s will look to build on their opening round win over Offaly back in April against a Westmeath team that beat Wexford in their quarter-final.

"It's massive game for both the players and the management, conceded Dublin manager Johnny McGuirk (left).

"We have a job to do on Saturday and we have been very happy with how the lads have gone in training recently so it's just a case of going out there any focussing on what we have to do.

"The players are well aware of the significance of the game and it is something that everyone involved with the panel is really looking forward to.

"We are by no means going to think that we are going to have an easy game on Saturday and there is absolutely no way that the management or the players are going to take their challenge lightly," added the former Craobh Chiaráin star.
