Michael Ryan’s improving team claimed the Division 2A title with a narrow win against Carlow, but were subsequently denied promotion to Division 1B following a play-off defeat to Laois. That match showed Westmeath that they still have some distance left to travel, but Ryan was able to reflect on a satisfactory spring. Now the objective is to earn a top two spot to advance to the knockout stages of the provincial championship.

Relegation for Westmeath footballers after defeat to Longford

Thu, Apr 07, 2016

Westmeath suffered a third Allianz Football League relegation in a row when dropping to the bottom tier following a disappointing 0-13 to 0-11 defeat against Longford at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park.

Having operated in Division One two years ago, Westmeath face Division Four fare in 2017 following this latest setback. It was a tough conclusion to this year’s competition for Westmeath, who had improved significantly when beating Limerick and Offaly.
