Statement From Shane O’Brien
I would like to thank the incredible group of players that I was so blessed to have worked with over the last three years.
It was a journey that had to much excitement and fulfilling memories in challenging and unprecedented times. I am fully aware of how fortunate I was to have worked with such a fantastic team. The players have shown immense courage and passion in Division One over the last two years, which ultimately lead to Westmeath winning the much sought after Joe Mc Donagh Cup.
I would like to thank the management and backroom team for their unwavering support and commitment and the clubs, supporters, Club Iarmhi and Westmeath County Board.
Westmeath Hurling is in a very strong position and I look forward to seeing their continued development in the coming years.
