Tailteann Cup 2022

<< < (5/5)

County Man:
A few quick points as another inter county season ends for Laois. No more competitive action until the National league in 8 months at the end of January.

On the game itself. Didn't know what to expect in the new Tailteann cup but the hope was to be somewhat competetive against Westmeath after what happened against Wicklow in Aughrim and also after getting walloped by Westmeath in Tullamore last years Leinster quater final.

Was impressed on Sunday. Only about 600 at the game but a bit of bite about it. We responded well to Aughrim. Good hunger was shown. Evan O'Carroll just went for it and on another day could have had 2 early goals. Big Donie made such a difference and Paul Kingston was sharp as he was against Wicklow when he came on in 2nd half.

We were well in the game even before their sending off. But we hit a purple patch after the sending off with some wonderful scores and again in the early part of the 2nd half. We looked good for victory when going 10-7 up. Our defense was much tighter, Paddy O'Sullivan was good at centre back and our new under 20 lads did very well especially Sean Greene, he was literally everywhere on the park. Great penalty save as well by Bolger.

We can build for the future. The under 20s ran Kildare to 2 points and they ended up in an All Ireland final. The key if possible is to have a settled, consistent panel for 3/4 years to build something. That is what Limerick have done and look how far Derry have come! We beat them 3 years ago in a qualifier up in Owenbeg.

Finally, a huge thank you to both John O'Loughlin and Colm Begley. 2 great servants to Laois football.







Giovanni:
Good post.

Have to say the 8 month break is a bit annoying.

Laois man:
Any word on our senior football manager is he staying or going?
