Cooney feels hard work in training is paying off for Westmeath footballers

Westmeath manager Jack Cooney was delighted with his side’s convincing victory over Offaly at Croke Park last Sunday, in the Tailteann Cup semi-final.

They will face Cavan in the decider on Saturday, 9 July at GAA Headquarters.

“It’s very pleasing to score what we did (3-22). We really imposed ourselves on the game in the first 20- minutes. It’s really pleasing; it’s not to often we get such a victory in Croke Park, so we’ll relish it,” said Cooney.  

While the outcome never really looked in doubt from the moment Ronan Wallace scored a superb goal, but Cooney admitted Westmeath have plenty to work on as they wasted some good chances, particularly in the first half.
