Thank you. Tricky to figure that out when all you have to do is click on the football tab at the top and it comes through no problem. I did as you said and it works.

Not true in the slightest. At least get basics right when pointing fingers. There were two crucial matches in div 3 last night for relegation and promotion, big win for Bunbrosna to stay in div 3 and Loman's gained promotion to Div 2, matches concluded at 8.45, results on website by 9.00, that not good enough for you?

But can't make the league tables for the hurling easily accessible for people

Previous poster explained it in simplest detail how to access hurling league tables.

Our boys will be there or there abouts don't worry…

Derek, Jogger, David and Shane Williams. Four serious top level forwards. Will take some handling

Any word on senior manager? Have heard two completely different stories from two lads who are usually on the ball!

One said Johnny and Kevin have been told by county board the job is theirs if they work together and they are gone off to hammer out the details

The other said they two lads are 100% going to take each other on for it and that a selection committee will be announced next week

Utter nonsense the site is very poor.Underage results dont include age groups so I could be looking for Raharney under 16 results but could be looking at 14s or minor and access to senior tables in hurling is a 0 joke.

Exactly, I forgot to mention that, well pointed out.

Tbf he has a point the layout of the site could be a lot more user-friendly. It's easy for someone with a little knowledge of managing a website to tweak it. You don't need to be a web developer or bring in a company.

You just need a line on the menu that says League Tables and a handful of submenus to click for each table.

I'd say Maria Lynam would love the assistance of all these critics and experts. Unless your all too busy helping elsewhere

I dont know the lady but if she has taken on the job of PRO she has the responsibility of informing Westmeath GAA people.We have full time employees to help and I am sure there are serious IT people in Croke Park who could help in setting up a user friendly informative web site.Hardly rocket science in 2024.Our website was much better in the past thats simply a fact not having a go at a volunteer and again I say we should not bring peoples names into it player or official.

So it's ok to criticise and find fault with volunteer officials but the fact you don't mention her name gives you a waiver. The PRO job is arguably the most onerous in the modern Gaa world, constant stream of info needed, what functions do you serve for club or county?

Changing the subject is a good ruse when your argument has no merit.The website is more or less useless not providing simple information to the public.So scrap the website or do it properly.

How's everyone feeling as we count down to championship?

Will our lads and Castletown give an insight into champ form or will they be holding something back with championship the following week?

Should be a good game.Could Castletown win both division 1 and 2?

You'd think that they would hold some of their D2 players back on Friday to win D1 Saturday. Although Conor Shaw is away for brownstown which will be a big miss

To start the discussion for the Championship, here is my predictions
Senior Championship Final
Castletown Vs Raharney
Raharney to win
Plunkett's relegated but they are 100% a club on the rise and will be back and competing soon.
Senior B
Fr.Dalton's Vs Delvin
Delvin to win
Relegated Crookedwood because of poor league form.
Intermediate
Brownstown Vs St.Brigid's
Brownstown to win
Turin to struggle

I predict that the championship final will be a repeat of the league final this weekend. Castletown vs the Gaels

Castletown Raharney final with Raharney to win. Raharney to qualify direct with clonkill and Castletown to contest semi.
Daltons possibly to struggle if Eoghan McCabe isn't back soon. If he his back then daltons to beat either delvin or ringtown in a final
Brownstown to win intermediate

I think repeat of league final for championship with Raharney and ourselves in semi

I've a feeling Clonkill might struggle without Mitchell unless he's due back for last few games?

I am going ctg they have great depth bar obrien who maybe back if they get to semis I think pressure on raharney to do back to back for first time ever or in a long time.

But one of gaels raharney ctg could beach each other on the day.
