Its a euphenism.We need to really believe is probably our biggest issue.Our 21s had that bit of luck when they beat Kk who hit a penalty wide.The year before it was the other way aroubd v Dublin.What we really need now is an excellent management group making sure all these promising players are well looked after and we simply MUST beat Laois.

Thank you Preddan its a great performance especially after the start.But it will be largely useless unless we at least draw with Laois.They will have all fit for that just like they did v Antrim in league. But our lads are learning quickly.

Well done to my friends in Westmeath.

Shows the gap isn't as big as some make out.

Good luck next week against Leix.

Fair play to Westmeath tonight, wanted it more and possibly could have nicked the game.

Well done, well deserved.

You lads have the momentum.

Just keep an eye on Paddy Purcell running from midfield.

Excellent performance yesterday, could have possibly won it at the end as well. We will take the draw though of course!
Important we carry this momentum into the Laois game next weekend, if we play with the same intensity as we did yesterday I can see us getting the result in Portlaoise. All we need is a draw to stay up, Laois need the win, in saying that we should go all guns blazing for the victory. Vital we keep 15 on the pitch this time around vs Laois.
Well done to all, and the progress can be seen. Two good performances against Kilkenny and Dublin for 50 odd minutes, and then a very good performance for the 70 minutes yesterday.

Congratulations on a super result for you.

You worked extremely hard and got what ye deserved.

Best of luck against laois.

A County needs a day like that to keep hurling going and ye were unlucky against Dublin.

The more of these days you have the better.

Congratulations on that famous draw last night. Your team were super and i would expect you to improve no end over the next few years. Joe Fortune ( a Wexford man ) has done a great job with the team and its important that you hold on to him.
A lot of head scratching in Wexford this morning but we simply were not good enough to win. Good luck in your next game against Laois. If you bring last nights form into that game then i have no doubt that you will win.

Did you stop for the photos after all or did you give it a miss?

What i am referring to is making sure we have good structures over the underage teams.I dont think anyone in Westmeath has any problem with Joe Fortune and his team but judgeing from the shenanigans in the tunnel at half time some Wexford officials do.

and to yourselves as well.Westmeath Offaly and Laois maybe rivals but we are three midland GAA counties unlike others.
