Ger Egan admits Westmeath are happy to have secured two pieces of silverware already in 2019.

Jack Cooney’s charges have really hit the ground running this season by capturing both the O’Byrne Cup and Division Three titles, with Egan producing a Man of the Match display against neighbours Laois in Saturday’s league final at Croke Park:

“It’s nice to finish out the league with a bit of silverware. We’ve come up here a fair few times in finals and came out empty-handed. It’ll mean nothing in the bigger scheme of things, but for today it’s nice to get silverware,” he told on

“Getting two trophies in the one year isn't really a thing we're accustomed to in Westmeath GAA. So delighted to get the win and I think it was deserved.

“Winning is a habit. We just kept winning and we'll see what the championship holds. We could go and Laois could beat us by the same and it would be like, ‘what's going on?’. So we can't take anything for granted. That's going to be a really tough game and they're not going to want to lose to us three times in the one year. It's all on that day.”
