Yeah, but I saw a lad on the Laois minor panel listed as being from Slieve Margy, so...? They're in with Park-Ratheniska/ Timahoe/ Graiguecullen in at least some juvenile levels. Unfortunate for Ratheniska, as it means leaving a lot of their own lads on the  line.

Was wondering that myself

Do you know how many ratheniska lads are being left on the line ?

I remember asking someone in the know from Margy did they have anyone from Graigue and they didnít anymore

I do always have a good laugh when I hear the football crew on here bemoaning the lack of opportunities for footballers in hurling clubs when at worst they have an outlet in Junior.

The reality is that large tracts of this county are a hurling desert.

There were at least five left on the line in their last championship match.

The u15 County Final?

Theres always going to be an issue with giving lads a run in a county final

Church in Abbeyleix and Spink is St Lazerians and the one in Ballinakill is St Brigids so where is St Patricks coming from

Were you not at the information night?

No, hence the question

Iíve no doubt you have more contacts up there than what I have

Grand.  ::)

Moving on, does anybody have any reasonably solid information on how the deal brokered has been received by the individual club memberships?

Ballinakill some reticence,but a lot of those complaining havenít paid their membership and wonít have a voice

Abbeyleix membership includes those who buy a county board ticket according to a lad here that worlds with me,could be a few that might dissent on the night

The feeling in both camps given the level of preparation thatís gone in,is that it will pass

The vote is on the same time Saturday night

There was a motion passed at convention this week. All amalgamations and entries will have to be finalised by 14th January and there won't be any exceptions to that.

There's a very important county committee meeting next Monday night to decide what will and won't be allowed in terms of Gaels teams etc.

Doesn't come in until January 2020
Correct. My bad. Although the Gaels stuff will be effective for 2019.

If the amalgamation vote goes ahead Saturday.

All bets could be off on this on Monday night

Iím sure the representative for Pickas will want her say

They said similar when it was moved to 7th Jan a few years back and it was flouted on a regular basis every year

We joined up with Port after the u15 hurling  league in May this year and there was no issues,we were waved on by the CB.

Hard to believe that alright . 45 lads picked for a Minor Hurling panel  with just  one from the largest Town in the county . A town that doesn't exactly lack in hurling tradition !
Questionable enough 45 too

Which ones then?
