Westmeath claimed an impressive 2-11 to 0-11 win over Laois at MW Hire O'Moore Park.

Jack Cooney's charges staged a dramatic comeback last weekend and worked in determined fashion in the first half.

Laois, backed by the elements, only led 0-6 to 1-2 at the interval following a Luke Loughlin goal for Westmeath.

Eoin Lowry and Gary Walsh were prominent for Laois, but Westmeath finished strongly.

In the closing stages substitute Kieran Martin sealed the deal with a goal for the visitors.

Substitute Oisín McGraynor's free ensured Wicklow and Fermanagh drew, 1-10 to 2-7, in Aughrim.

It was a defiant second half revival from Wicklow, who trailed by 2-4 to 0-2 at the break.

Conal Jones and Sean Quigley grabbed goals for Fermanagh, but Wicklow summoned a gutsy response.

Early in the second period Wicklow were nine points behind, but McGraynor created an opportunity for Dean Healy, who netted.

Wicklow eventually landed a leveller in the closing stages to earn a division of the spoils.

Sam Mulroy's last gasp free ensured Louth left the midlands with a point.

Mulroy scored an early goal for Louth, who led at half-time by 1-3 to 0-4.

With Darren Gallagher, Des Reynolds, and Jayson Matthews contributing scores for Longford, Billy O'Loughlin's team led in stoppage time, but Louth battled on.

Limerick's blistering start was rewarded with a 2-9 to 0-11 victory over Antrim at Corrigan Park on Saturday.

Impressive against Longford, Limerick claimed another victory, accumulating an early seven point advantage with Antrim unable to recover sufficiently.

Only two minutes had elapsed when Cian Sheehan netted a goal following good work by Peter Nash.

Then the effective Nash added a second Limerick major in the 10th minute for Billy Lee's outfit.

Ryan Murray was accurate for Antrim, but Limerick left Belfast encouraged following another satisfying success.
