Replying To The_Fonz:  "Are ya from Collinstown or Wexford a vic?"
Probably a lad from Westmeath that couldn't get a game here in the county, so moved to Wexford to play "Junior B I would say". He must have a lot of time on his hands looking for other people's mistakes.

Replying To westmeathman99:  "I believe there are a good few Hughs in the south of the county"
If you look up the birth records over the last 80 years in westmeath there have been exactly 2000 Hughs born in South Westmeath.. If you look up the Death records over the last 80 years of the amount of Hughs that died who were also born in that time frame you will find that there are only 1427 still alive.
Recent surveys suggest that approximately 50% of westmeath males are interested in Gaelic football which reduces the number of Hughs to 713.5. Out of those 713.5 football supporting Hughs there are 71 living in the Caulry Garrycastle catchment areas so we can assume they will all attend both matches given the proximity of both clubs. This leaves 642.5 football supporting Hughs of which I would estimate 90% of these Hughs are casual supporters and will not attend for various reasons. This leaves 64.25 Hughs.
So, (64.25 + 71 =) 135.25 Hughs will want to attend both matches.
This is just an estimate. I haven't allowed for Hughs over 80yrs old or Hughs who have no interest in GAA but feel obliged to go as they are living in the representing clubs communities...

Fit them all behind the goals. Close off the rest of the park.
