Was at it myself Val good in Midfield but Claving was very good at 14 and then they moved him out to midfield Longofrd were far far better team and should have won but a young minor from last year caem on and changed the game. Dillion gave a unreal crossfield ball for the Westmeathn Goal that changed the game for us. Impressed with Westmeath Full back line i taught they were excelent. Centre back very good, wing backs were poor midfield we already delat with 11 let there 6 destroy us, THE YOUNG LAD FROM sHAMROCKS WAS EXCELENT IN FIRST HALF BUT GOT NO BALL IN TEH SECOND.
some of the subs did well and they all showed great fighting spirit which with some work there might be a good team here.

Courtesy of Longford Leader:

Although they had to depend on Shane Kenny firing over a free for the equalising score in the second minute of stoppage time, this was a game Longford (minus the Mullinalaghta players) should have won as they let a four point lead slip from their grasp in the Hastings Cup Under 21 Football Tournament first round round game at the Tubberclair grounds on Tuesday night.
Hastings Cup Under 21 Football Tournament Group 2 - Round 1
Westmeath . . . . . 2-10 Longford . . . . . 1-13
While Westmeath got right back into contention with a goal from a penalty converted by Ronan O'Toole midway through the second half, followed quickly by a point from Boidu Sayeh to leave the sides all square (1-10 to 1-10), Longford regained the lead with a point from Nigel Rabbitte in the 54th minute.
Substitute Cillian Lee increased the advantage when he landed a cracking point but Westmeath hit the front when Ronan O'Toole broke through to blast the ball to the back of the net in the final minute of normal time.
That was a severe setback for Longford but Shane Kenny came to the rescue with his late point and the visitors should have been awarded another free when Cian Brady was clearly fouled right on the stroke of the full-time whistle but Offaly referee Chris Dwyer failed to punish the tough tackle.
Longford were furious and particularly midfielder Conor Berry who lost his cool in remonstrating with the match official, resulting in a red card which rules the Abbeylara player out of the next Hastings Cup game against Cavan at Sheelin Park, Ballymachugh on Saturday next, throw-in 3pm.

Its actually terrible that we have to rely on the Longford Leader for a detailed match report.

I suspect the game being played on Tuesday night meant local papers couldn't report it for Wednesdays papers. However, Westmeath's social media/Website is still amateur at best, many clubs in Westmeath have superior Twitter/websites, etc.

regardless County and club coverage on games and on goings in Westmeath is miles behind every other county.

live Match up-Dates is the worst I've seen It's awful for a county with such Footballing interest in it.

You're relying on a one man band which in this day and age is crazy.
For starters I would think you need one person per sport - football, ladies football, hurling & camogie.
Then another person to maintain the website.
The PRO also does MC in C

Sorry, clicked a bit too quick there.
PRO also does MC in Cusack Park for most matches so it's a busy job.
But surely it's not too much to ask for team lists from these county games which is what everyone is interested in.
There is a huge appetite out there for instant communication because of the technology.
I think the PRO needs a sub com a tee !
