Shaggy Leavy v Peter O Neill. To replace Kavanagh.

And we wonder why we are where we are.

They’ll need a lot of support best of luck to whoever gets it, they’ll need it. It surely can’t get any worse can it ? :o
It's hardly possible to build anything if frustration, bitterness and a mood of helplessness prevail

Don, how and why would it get worse? I only ask because I know very little of the inner workings of Laois GAA politics!

And assistant treasurer, he's the only one nominated for that.

Surely Shaggy will pull out though to pursue his dream of forcing all juvenile gaa players in the country to give up the other sports they play

We have a man who lost a vote for Vice Chairman a few months ago, about to walk into the Chairmans position, uncontested. We have a situation whereby two men allowed their names go forward, only to bollox it up between themselves to allow a non race for the top job, most important job, in Laois GAA.

If you believe this is good for Laois GAA, then pray tell, and you too "clonadmad", what Mr O Neill is going to bring to Laois GAA? Lets not forget, he's backed by a Club who brought Laois GAA to the DRA (aka Supreme Court in our Association terms) a number of months ago.

Id say the odds of Portlaoise getting a stand and floodlights funded has been greatly increased,for starters.

He's there,because no one else go off their arses and stepped forward,that's why.

He's there, like the rest of them, because no one else will touch it as long as they continue musical chairs. Good men will come and give up (cf Cheddar) out of sheer frustration with the shite.

If the two lads managed to bollox up who was running maybe it's just as well they're not going to be in charge.

O'Neill isn't very inspiring either but has moved in the right circles for years now. An offaly man too.

Its not so much a race to the top, as the last to the bottom.
