Westmeath manager Jack Cooney was effusive in his praise of his side’s display, following last Saturday’s National Football League (Division 2 North) encounter with Mayo at TEG Cusack Park.
The Lake County suffered a three-point defeat, but for Cooney, the effort of his players was the real highlight.
“Let’s not forget, Mayo were in the All-Ireland final last year, so you measure yourself against that. The lads are making great progress; there’s a huge belief in what they are doing here and it’s brilliant to see it,” he enthused.
