In fairness we lost 4 starting forwards for the Dublin game last year. King, Maher, Cha and Willie Dunphy. A small county can't compete with players of that calibre missing.

The gap between 2 and 3 is alot closer than the gap between 1 and 2.

We will see how the hurling league and championship goes this year to see if we are improving. We cannot afford any injuries or suspensions like last year as we simply don't have the strength in depth.

So called weaker teams always have a chance in a one off game however it's rare if ever they beat one of the better counties. Fair enough Westmeath gave Tipp a right battle but we did the same with Galway for two years in a row and also went toe to toe with Clare.
Tobias is right. aside from U21 level we have had the upper hand on them particularly at senior where it counts most.
Also regarding the Dublin game last year we competed very well up to half time with only half a team of regular starters due to injury and suspension.

What sort of team did Laois have out.

The Laois Tpday report on these years minor championship states that Laois didn't take part in it last year. What competition are they referring to as Laois hurlers were in minor last year.

I believe Burke won't be in this year, after all.

Disappointing to hear that. Are there any notable additions to the panel at all?

10 votes swung it. Not much considering how late Leavy left it.

There should be only 9 senior football clubs. Then three "divisional" teams making a 12 team senior championship.
Will never happen though.

What would your 3 divisional teams be Hesh?

Great to see Laois in Tier 1. Have they the ability to stay there as I assume there is some form of relegation/promotion?

What's the story with inter county U21 hurling. Why has it not gone back to U20 like the football?

Don, how and why would it get worse? I only ask because I know very little of the inner workings of Laois GAA politics!

I would agree with Don on this. There were 40 players playing senior between both clubs as opposed to 20. Kilcruise won a senior and arguably could have won more had it not been for the dominance of an excellent Portlaoise team. Killeen contested finals. Yes, they may have won more as a combined team but that's a matter of opinion. Was the senior championship better for having both those teams in the senior ranks, definately. It all gave the county a feisty derby.
It's a non argument anyway because while both teams were competing well there was never going to be an amalgamation so it's a 'what if' argument. Same could be had for most if not all parishes.

Kilcruise won't be amalgamating with anyone for the time being. Although they're an aging team they are still committed to their club and I can't see them even considering it while they are still playing senior.

What's Joe Campions situation? He played a couple of years ago. Is it work/college or lack of interest?

The only thing I would say on that is if you don't have the numbers to field a team/panel you mightn't be left with any option. Gaels teams which are only there to improve a seniors chances I wouldn't agree with. Stradbally surely have no difficulty getting 20 lads together. They were county champions lat year FFS.
