Coaching Officer Seminar

Westmeath Coaching and Games will host a Club Coaching Officer Seminar on Thursday, April 25, in Clonkill. The event will be open to all coaching officers in the county and more details will follow in the coming weeks.

Celtic Challenge

The county’s U16 hurlers were due to start their Celtic Challenge campaign last Saturday away to Mayo but Storm Kathleen put paid to the game. The team are out this weekend, however, hosting Sligo in St. Lomans at 1.30pm. Best wishes to all players and management.

U16 Footballers

Westmeath U16 footballers played Longford in a challenge game on Saturday in Keenagh. The game was played in three sections of twenty minutes with all 30 players getting substantial playing time. This will act as good preparation for the upcoming Ted Webb Cup where the team will play against Galway, Dublin and Cork.

Go Games

Hurling Go Games resumed last Saturday in Westmeath despite the inclement weather conditions. Well done to all players, mentors and referees for braving the elements to play the games.
