Moorefield's failure to add to the provincial title they won back in 2006 is a source of disappointment for Daryl Flynn.

And it is something that he and his club-mates will be looking to make amends for when they square up to St Loman's of Mullingar in Portlaoise this Sunday.

"We won it in 2006 but it's 11 years now since we got to a Leinster final," the former Lilywhite remarked to The Irish Independent.

"And for the teams we've had, it's a poor show from us. We've had to really knuckle down this year and we came in under the radar a bit.

"In Kildare, we were underdogs all year and we came the hard way, beating Sarsfields, Athy and Celbridge who were three of the favourites for the title. It's been tough all year."

Flynn is well aware of the threat that the Westmeath champions post to their Leinster ambitions.

"It's a 50-50 (game). Loman's have a great side as well. They came from seven points down in the Leinster semi-final, and it's a great achievement.

"In their county final as well, they were down; they seem to start slow and kick on.

"We're possibly the opposite, we get goals early and start well but then let teams back into it. So it'll be a close game."
