Westmeath survive Offaly's second half comeback to win their league opener by a single point.

Westmeath's Camogie manager is paying tribute to the panel's captain and vice captain after their narrow victory over Offaly.

Padraic Connaughton saw his side race in to a ten point lead in the first half, only to have the Faithful County launch a spirited fight back that fell short by just a point.

The final score in Raharney was 4-11 to 3-13.

Connaughton says Julie McLoughlin and Aoife O'Malley made a big impact but his side's second half performance is concerning.

He tells Midlands 103's Jason Keelan he's satisfied with the result:
