You want Westmeath to win all their games and we need to put a big score past Meath

A 1 point win, we'll take that. Jaysus they made it very hard in the end after being 5 points up going into injury time.

Only a point in it at the end but Laois get the win in Dunloy today. A glimmer of hope.

If you're following on Twitter 'Unit Updates' are much better than the official Laois GAA twitter page as they give scorers and a bit more info.

Laois doing very well at the moment 9 points to 6 up against the wind, Ross King is flying today. Need a win hear badly.

Is it correct that the game in Antrim is starting at 1.30pm?

Was going to drive up tomorrow but that's a very early throw in time. Must be about a 4 hour drive from Laois.

That was my point. Although I don't know the in's and out's of dealing with Croke Park I would have thought that any plans etc would have to come through official channels and therefore if the backing wasn't from within the CB then it wouldn't have a chance. I would assume the same would happen in any other county.

Surely it's up to the county board to push for funding and continue to do so until something happens. I fail to see how the powers that be could refuse financial aid if a workable plan is put before them and the right people are involved to manage it. As the saying goes where there's a will there's a way. Maybe the CB themselves weren't particularly enthusiastic about it as any funds would have to come through them I would imagine.

What are the thoughts on the Antrim game? They are unbeaten so far however only a few weeks ago we beat them on their own patch albeit the league. If we could get a victory we might still be in with a faint chance of getting second spot with 2 games to go.

What is the problem at the moment where we don't seem able to compete like the early games in the league. We had a right go at both Galway and Limerick. Have we completely done away with the short passing game because I haven't seen too much of it. Forwards seem to be playing as individuals and as much as we all like Cha he's taking on shots that are at best 50/50 at times. No cohesion going forward and very little interplay between the top six.

In the backs we've been hampered by injuries however the use of some of the subs is questionable. There is a fairly extensive management team in place and we had looked like we were improving but now look leggy and somewhat confused as a team.

Can we turn things around or do we say good bye and good luck to this years championship with a view to retaining our place in Joe McDonagh for next year.

On another note was it just the county board who forced Cheddar out or did the clubs have any say in the matter?

Hard to fathom really with the likes of Cheddar and Zoom from the town as well as plenty of other hurling men who gave their all in the blue and white, Rigney, Tommy Fitz, John Taylor. Are the street leagues stillbeing played?
Are the likes of Clonad benefitting from this problem in Portlaoise.

Minor team for game against Wexford.

LAOIS TEAM: Locran Fitzpatrick (The Harps), Ben Shore (Castletown), Danny Brennan (Park-Ratheniska), Killian Kirwan (Mountrath); Keilan Kelly (Borris-Kilcotton), Conor Cosgrove (Rosenallis), Thep Fitzpatrick (Rathdowney-Errill); Fionan Mahoney (Abbeyleix), Fionn Holland (Clonad); Ciarán Byrne (Abbeyleix), Allan Connolly (Ballyfin), Tadhg Cuddy (Castletown); Mark Hennessy (Clough-Ballacolla), Cathal O’Shaughnessy (Ballinakill), Adam Kirwan (Trumera)


Surprising lack of players from the bigger amalgamated clubs like Rathdowney/Errill, C/B and B/K ( 3 in total). None from Portaloise or Camross as on the hop stated.

How are Laois minors set up this year? Game against Wexford next Saturday before the football.

Have they a decent group of players who could do well?
