What happened to Slieve Margy isnt a solution and it will only copperfasten the idea that hurling in Port is only a passing fad. This cannot be allowed to happen. An adult hurling club needs to be formed and maybe let it encompass Port and O'Dempseys (possibly others even) together under a different banner/jersey etc and let it be about hurling rather than parochialism. Maybe if players have ambitions to play at higher level they could play with a senior area team until Port come up the grades. This set up would allow Port etc. players to represent the new club at junior c and play at higher level if able and interested with area team. This development in Port must be given every chance to develop into an adult club and not seen as a chance for other clubs to cherrypick players.

Were any of ye at the minor final? I thought the standard was quite poor. Great win for Camross but a cruel way for Abbeyleix to lose.

Great win for Camross shocking unlucky for Aleix. Standard was only shocking no score from play for 40 mins.

Camross should and will be delighted with the win.

11/12 of their starters underage again next year with one u14 playing this year.

Knew their limitations and played to them, it worked out  for them.

Abbeyleix for one reason or another didnít perform on the night

Hope this is how Feile can be kept moving forward.
It'll be a great weekend for the players. Presume this year will be played on one day but I know most players and parents would have no issue with coming back on the Sunday to play a semi-final or final.

The Harps should give Div 2 a rattle.

Can you point me to 2/3 achievements that Derek has brought about since his arrival?

You know this for a fact?

I'm not aware of him getting paid or not but I have spoken to a number of players and parents who spoke very highly of him. He is a professional, thorough individual and I genuinely think he is contributing positively to the development of our young players.
I know results have been disappointing but underage sport isnt all about results.

It might not be about results but you would like to see an improvement in underage

From what I saw in Newbridge we havent

An improvement? The two groups he has been involved with have regressed immeasurably. The 2020 group beat Offaly by 53 points at U14 and the 2021 group C team beat Kildare at U14. Yet when they get to minor we lose embarrassingly to both. So naturally, our CB give him another group to butcher, just in case he hadn't done enough damage to hurling in Laois.

Nail on the head ZA

I was just going to post similar myself

If itís not a results business at minor as opposed to ďjuvenileĒ,then some lads must be ecstatic with how things under Derekís tutelage are proceeding.

So can anyone point to anything else,other than him being a nice man and not to worry about the results
