Forristal/Buckley u14 qualifiers was moved to Wexford centre of excellence due to what had happened in Thurles last night

Tipperary didnít turn up

Laois A were competitive v Wexford but got a trimming against Cork

Laois B got the mother and father of beatings off both Cork and Wexford teams

When you see 1 mentor over each laois  team versus the setup of other counties

Laois would be better off staying at home until they sort their shit out

No offence to either the youngsters or the mentors who have taken up this thankless poisoned chalice

I see where we played Kilkenny at the weekend. I think it was U15. Any idea how it went? The Development Squad qualifiers are on next weekend.

U14s it was

Beaten by KK

Tony Forristal/Sonny Buckley u14 All Ireland starting this weekend

You wouldnít be too hopeful for success given that u14 squad only came together in May

Was that our A team against their A team or was it one of those Even teams blitzes they have now.

Kk had 25 odd and Laois had 45 odd

Played one game

Pauric Maher going in as with Cahill and Bevans.

Good choice for them, and with him not playing now, he'll get the fire going.

Declan Laffan (who managed Laois club to 2-in-a-row) and T.J. Ryan (not the Limerick one) in the backroom team also.

Cahill seems to be well prepared. Nearly too well - I wonder was he tapped up a lot earlier than people think or say he was?

He wasnít tapped up and it was a lot earlier

Lads on here seem to missing the point completely looking for a name to manage

The first thing the name will do when interviewed will have a list of what he wants and a budget to go with it

Tipperary spent Ä1.5m winning an all ireland in 19 under Sheedy with a backroom team of 29 and that was just what appeared in their county board accounts,it didnít include donations from outside the county board

Davy normally needs a second bus for his backroom team

Laois doesnít have the access to this level of funds and even if it did,the likes of a Davy would bleed the  juvenile development budgets in a county white to fund the senior operation

Christ the names being mentioned here dont look too inspiring. Ryan O Dwyer they can't be serious. I wouldn't even be happy with Tommy dunne. He's not that highly regarded in tipp.
We need to be ambitious here. Anthony Daly, Derek McGrath, Eamonn O Shea, Liam Sheedy, Derek Lyng, Davy Fitz, Get Eddie back. Lads with pedigree at management, not just taking a chance on a lad that could play a bit. This appointment is important. Id like good laois selectors in then too such as Tommy fitz, Eamonn Jack man, Niall Rigney

That gave me a laugh anyways

Davy Fitz,Daly,Sheedy,EOS even McGrath wouldnt be interested in a Joe McDonagh team

Tommy Dunne is highly regarded in Tipp as a coach having been involved in their last 2 All Ireland wins,its doubtful though that he would set foot in a set up that would have a fraction of the resources that the likes of Tipp have at their disposal.

I hope Im wrong

is Declan Laffan worth a call?

Yeah heís playing for Cashel King Cormacís still as far as I know . Iíd be very surprised if he got the gig . Limited managerial experience apart from some club team in Meath .
Pat Ryan from Cork who managed them to  2 u-20 all Irelands was nominated but seemingly not interested.

ODwyer is with Liam Mellows in Galway

There wasnít a hope of getting Pat Ryan as he was odds on to take over when Kingston fell on his sword and the Cork CB had him lined up anyways

We were poor on the day, only played well for 20 minutes, can't defend for nuts, conceded 1-3 to 0-0 last 8 or 9 minutes.
Happy now?
Now what has that got to do with the Hurley Final?
Was a good contest, better team won.
Now fir the real All Ireland Final

Poor on the day?

Every day since 1944?
Stop showing your stupidity and ignorance

You are the epitome of both

It's still a minority sport in most Counties and considered a nuisance by Co Boards in a lot of them.
Football Counties apart from Dublin tend to have smaller populations than the Hurling ones plus football didn't restrict the Senior Inter County Provincials and National to a top 10 or 12.
As for Laois.... they are great at keeping attendances down as they seldom ever go to a match to support their County teams.
Hopefully today's game will be a close and exciting one but go aisy on the "best sport in the world" hyperbole 😆

Rossfans missus got rode by a hurler(s)

Has to be the only explanation
