We can't stand on both sides of the fence. We can't argue that we need more money to be successful because Dublin got more, while at the same time denying that counties that got less than us are more successful.
I'm not looking to blame anyone individually, but it would seem our county development model is not working. I have had some experience of the hurling development squads over the last five or six years and I have to say hand on heart it hasn't been great. Similarly our Setanta programme has been poor in terms of the coaching delivered. Some of our intercounty players have been involved and while I thank them for their effort, their coaching skills leave a lot to be desired. It takes years to become an effective coach and some of the greatest hurlers make the worst coaches.
Development squads can only be as good as the players coming from the clubs and as anyone involved in underage coaching will tell you, that is a very mixed bag.
Forget about the development squads, put more resources into up-skilling club coaches and you will see better county teams.

On the topic of development squads,some of the underage hurling squads aren’t bothering with running trials this year.

Whoever was on last years squad will do for this year.

Absolute nonsense should be personal choice no doubt some nonsense of a committee came up with this to justify their existence also extremely pedantic of ref should have been let go

If he gets a few teeth knocked out of his head,will he pay for it himself then?

No gumshield,no insurance and it’s not put in place by some “nonsense” of a committee,it’s a stipulation of the insurance company

He was told by the ref to get a gum shield and he goes and sticks it in his sock

Fully deserved yellow card

Under the current bye laws

Rural to Rural transfers are ok

But rural to urban (Portlaoise being the only designated urban club in the county) are subject to a number of criteria being meet.
Hahahahahahahahahahaha

Well thems the rules,it’s easy being cynical given what went on in the Rafter case,but sooner or later the County Board will have to enforce its own rules or rip them up and give Portlaoise a free reign.

I see of all the Laois Clubs asked to fill in a Questionnaire and have a consultation night to tease out issues.

Only 1 Club refused to do both

Who are the clubs in trouble,

Trumera?
Kilcavan?

Fair play to them for highlighting the issues facing them,hopefully their decline can be arrested
Kilcavan are picking up at juvenile level. They'll be OK.
Trumera and Kyle are my guesses. I can't see the ten that was reported though. Barrowhouse?

It was the clubs themselves that signaled their difficulties in playing numbers in the survey.

10 is the figure in the report
