Laois / Re: Strategic Review of Gaelic Games in Laois 2017

The whole point is to keep lads playing.

A lot of proud Camross men and women are disgusted by what happened.

It's wrong to paint them all with the same brush and only serves to allow those responsible to hide amongst all the furore.

I would feel for the genuine supporters but I'd imagine the majority don't care what anyone thinks today.

Hurling in laois reached a low on Sunday. I thought the semi final was bad but when a mentor can do what was done at the b/k match I can only see it getting worse

A new low? What are you on about? Not remember the Camross/ Castletown sagas, or the Portlaoise/ Camross bust-ups? Or the several Clonaslee 'incidents'? It was bad, but far from a 'new low'.

What Camross guys should be on the Laois panel ? Zane Keenan, Ciaran Collier . Anyone else ?

Zane's not likely to go in, but Collier would be a great addition. Gearoid Burke would add a bit of steel to the backs, too... But, alas, unlikely to go, either.

Well... - it is getting a little tedious.

The lads in question ain't good enough to hurl w/ Leix.
The only one out of that crew I'd want w/ the county is Collier.

That had the foot broke? Who the hell do you think? If you ask me, he was the instigator of the row in the semi-final.

Maybe a strong sanction would stop this though Don .  I wasn't  there but heard it was a deliberate  attack.  Was the king chap wearing  his helmet?? If so it makes  it even more cynical as it sounds like the butt of the hurl was used.   Should that club benefit  from what appears  to be an action to take out  the oppositions  best Forward??  in my opinion  no.  Put your  own club in Rathdowneys place and pick any player from your team to be deliberately  struck and suffer the same horrific  injuries would you feel that my suggestion  is over the top then.  I'm  not from Rathdowneys or even  a hurling club by the way but this has really  angered Me!

Yes, he was wearing his helmet. However, I don't think it was a premeditated plan to 'do' him. It was a scrap, and it went too far. Personally, I was a bit surprised there was no red card. There was a similar shemozzle in the Camross v Borris semi-final, and the same ref was no way on top of the situation then, either. Something similar could easily have happened that time. It's certainly a tough job - refereeing - and I wouldn't want to do it, but I did wonder at him getting the final gig. However, as we all know, he does do inter-county, and we do need to freshen up the pool of referees in this county.

Just rock up some evening there's training on, and there'll be no going back! Just do it, as they say!

The latest one doing the rounds is that if raheen parish gaels break up underage colt will take any young lad living in the clonad area as clonad are technically a portlaoise club while clonad area is in raheen parish. You couldnt make it up

This is surely a joke?! Colt, at underage, have practically nothing coming through.

Hopefully the same as what happened Slieve Margy won't happen w/ the St. Paul's/ Portarlington hurling amalgamation, which won the u13 B championship recently. However, keeping that team going u15 will be a real challenge, and I wish them luck.

I thought the standard of the Senior A, while not amazing, was certainly better than the Senior A final last year. Basically, Portlaoise won it through hard work, harrying, and tackling. Some good lads to catch a ball, too. Harps probably the more skilful team, but as ever, couldn't mix it in the physical stakes.
Anyway, good to see them win it, in a way - although everyone loves to beat them, Laois needs a strong hurling team in the middle of the county.

What you say about the ref is correct, but the writing was on the wall from the semi-final against Borris. Today he seemed far more fussy overall, but could easily have handed out a red. Still, Camross have that mix of doggedness, steel and a some skilful lads. Collier had another great game.
Laois clubs have underachieved in Leinster recently, and I don't see why this year should be much different...

Let's hope Limerick do the three-in-a-row!

It's many years since a team retained the county senior championship, and that would indicate a fairly competitive championship. Sure, there's only a few teams that could realistically win it, but that's the same in most sports. Indeed, there's an argument that says the county set-up might be better if there was one really strong club dominating the club scene, and which provided the backbone of the county team!

Rover - Clough/ Ballacolla is hardly an amalgamation, is it?

R/E didn't look too wonderful getting over Ballinakill, and it was only their somewhat lucky goal that turned the game in the second half.
Camross will probably be favourites in the final: dogged B/K out of, but they have a nice blend of hefty whores and a few good skilful hurlers. Didn't let Borris hurl, and R/E will have to really want it physically to prevail.

Wonder would Eddie Brennan get Joe Campion and Ciaran Collier back for Leix? I'd say getting Zane would be asking too much, but his point from a sideline cut in the first half was something else!

No, there were 60 entered in the leagues; but Division 5A and 5B would be a bit hit and miss.
