Westmeath Won't Be Taken For Granted - Willie Maher

The Laois manager is drawing parallels between their situation and Offaly's last year.

Westmeath will be taken as seriously as Offaly when it comes to this weekend's Joe McDonagh Cup, according to Laois Senior Hurling Manager Willie Maher.

The O'Moore County are already qualified for the Joe McDonagh Cup final after a run of four championship victories.

Westmeath won't be able to make the final after a difficult campaign which has seen them lose to Kerry, Offaly, and draw with Down.

Maher says making too many changes for this last round could undermine their success so far.

He previews the championship's latest midlands derby with David Hollywood:

The game in Cusack Park gets underway at 1pm on Saturday while Laois will take on Offaly in the Joe McDonagh Cup Final on Saturday, June 8th.
