Laois / Re: The future of laois hurling

Just reading Cheddar has taken over the reins at James Stephen s along with another good Laois man  Seamus Dwyer . These are the people the county board  need involved in the continued development of Laois hurling. But alas we know better .
Best of luck to the lads in Kilkenny I'm sure they'll do a right job there .

Laois can ill afford coaches of Cheddars quality coming to the likes of KK.

Yet another example of the drift and apathy that pervades this county but particularly at county board level

Is there anywhere that all amalgamations at juvenile level can be viewed?

Just ask the lads here! They seem to know everything, especially Clonadmad!

Iíll take that as a compliment BM

To be honest he shouldnít be there.
I have no negatives from the camp and no axe to grind with him or the set up but this should have been a prerequisite for getting the job.
It smacks of keeping his options open and face in the spotlight.
Laois wonít be hurling beyond June and Eddie is available for the business end.
I think itís disrespectful.

Well said

No other Manager would double job in the way that he is doing this or be let away with it by a county board.

As I said above, Laois' infrastructure and its mechanics are a soap opera.

In these sort of arrangements, I have seen first hand the pressure that exists to get everyone on the field. People can no longer accept that their youngster, their player, does not deserve to start. So some bright spark said when we have enough of one age group, we'll register them as a single team. This is not the first time this has happened. I think this is what brought Ballylinan Genmore to its knees as well. It needs to be discussed at length and arrangements need to be set in stone. There is a feeling of Open Season about everything we do, and it's very divisive. Talk about area teams and players getting access to senior football can be shelved until this sort of nonsense is resolved
Have to agree 100% Ballylinan went on their own a few years back due to one team initially pushing for it. The Rock split with St Pauls over one team. St Josephs and Barrowhouse probably over one player but it was hard to blame Barrowhouse. The word is that Crettyard pulled the trigger on their split with Killeshin while Kilcavan went on their own once they were able to. This is only football and hurling is probably similar.  Have to admire Stradbally Parish Gaels for going the distance. There is no problem with any club going on their own if they have the numbers but they can't have it everyway. Killeshin were dead right to pull the whole thing if Crettyard initiated the latest split. Why deal with a club who will let you down when it suits them.

SPG came very close to disbanding last year over the Stradbally name in the teamís name and no recognition of the other 2 clubs
That and one club poaching anotherís players


Really Don

When was there poaching in the past few years?

people need to get their facts right ,crettyard pulled their u13 first didnt want to play with killeshin the minute they could make a team bye their own. when killeshin could have done that every year because  they had the numbers to make teams ,all this was instigated by  cretty their age groups where they couldnt  killeshin only pulled out of amalgation after cretty did this

Did both killeshin and crettyard have enough at u13 for 2 seperate  teams?

If they had

surely there was no issue to keeping the amalgamation together and both clubs entering 2 seperate u13 teams,is it not all about giving lads game time rather than having 15 lads standing on a sideline

The other option was to put in 2 Killeshin /crettyard teams in u13 A and either B or C

Coiste na nOg and the County Board should be knocking heads together instead of wringing their hands

Who are underage players in Crettyard gonna play with now?

Na Fianna Og,now a 4 club Juvenile amalgamation

Seemingly Crettyard are low in numbers but high in quality,I have no connection with either Killeshin or Crettyard,but what Killeshin did was shortsighted and plain wrong

Interesting times ahead too for Castletown, Slieve Bloom and the other na Fianna

I see Killeshin and Graigue have declared war on each other.

So to summarize

Killeshin Throw crettyard our of their amalgamation and then go poaching in Graiguecullen.

And then Graiguecullen issue a statement

And Killeshin play Graiguecullen in the Kelly Cup this weekend

Galway started with 4 from last years All Ireland Final moved through the gears

Laois were game,stayed going to the very end

The best we can hope from the first 3 rounds,are no injuries and not to cop 3 hidings,I could be wrong but I would worry about the Waterford game

Our league will be with Offaly and Carlow

In relation to Tipp

Iíve been told by a teacher

Itís 4 Cumann na mBun School Squads,1 in each of the divisions

Schools send in only 1 player (unlike Laois where thereís no limit)

They train for 6/8 weeks and play games in that period also

Tipp would have 2 teams at u14/15 level

At that age group where selectors etc are from has huge influence on who/who doesnít make these panels. Is there no portlaoise input mentor wise into hese squads.

Laughable comment in fairness

Just shows how little you actually know about the process

Pity Clonadmad is not actually from Clonad. It seems his real face is the former Laois gda from Kilkenny.
Does this mean you're not Batman?

Poor Batman

Wrong again

sign of the times....once upon a time rathdowney secondary were one of the big guns in "A" vocational schools....C grade is for the also rans.

as for no one from portlaoise being on the cumann na b panel...a shame....but perhaps Clonadmad rather than continually drilling away at hurling in Portlaoise GAA, a look closer to homemay be relevant.  If you are from Clonad, a once proud senior hurling club in this county, can you answer why the same Clonad has not produced one county panel standard senior player in the 21st century? is the raw material that bad, or is it the coaching?, because ye have all the facilties(fair play).

I wasnít having a pop at Portlaoise GAA

I was pointing out the fact that no child from the Parish was deemed good enough to make a 38 man development panel.
