'I'll Tell You One Thing, You're Not Going To Get A Jim Gavin From Me'

Westmeath won the All-Ireland Intermediate Camogie Championship for the first time on Sunday. The win came just two years after they claimed the junior title.

Seven points down at the break to Galway, Westmeath outscored the Connacht side 1-7 to 0-1 in the second half as they eventually won by two.

"I'll tell you one thing, you're not going to get a Jim Gavin from me," manager Johnny Greville told RTÉ after the game.

"I was as excited as any of the players on the field. It's absolutely unbelievable, this is what dreams are made of, this is why we do this, why we put in the time.

"The passion and enthusiasm of those players drive you on for every second and every minute.

"There's a lot resolve in this team. I spoke about it beforehand. We've come through a lot of tragedies and close calls."


Johnny's sister Pamela played the game at full-forward, scoring 0-9. Four of her points came from play.

"We've been behind like that before," she said, "we knew if we left everything on the field, we could come out with a win - we showed that today. Credit to the backs, it was brilliant. "
