Laois / Re: Underage squads 2024
June 05, 2024, 11:42:09 AM
I finally think I tracked down the record.
From what I can see laois have never won division 3 Celtic challenge.
They have won division 4 on a couple of occasions and never played at a higher level than division 3. It appears that this is set before the start of the competition ??
Laois team that won had 5 chaps 15 years of age and 5 16 year of age rest are at the last year of minor.
As for the ineligible player he is one of the 16s drafted into the minor panel at the last minute he is certainly not named on the minor panel . The word I got was lenister gaa him the ok to play but mayo objected at last minute.
It again come back to the shite show of the minor hurling set many u16-15 year old played for 15 minutes and had there season finished not eligible to play for the rest of season.

See the Celtic challenge team won division 3.

I am not looking to take from their achievement. I was told that laois had never won a division 3 title. So a win is great

 .but as previously said should laois not be trying to play at a higher level ??

I couldn't agree more with your thoughts.
But the issue haven't changed.

But the word is even with all year management teams fallings and lack of even having a clue ,laois intend to give them the role for another term .

How can these sort of thing happen ??

Yes I believe Shane is a good man at the top..but still everything will take time to get right
This year minor hurling management group are a prime example of what is so wrong. Look these guys give up there time to help out where they can but at what gain to the county.
Look at the results of this year minor hurling team lost to kildare barely bet Kerry and a useless Carlow team at home. Lost to a bad Offaly team.

Talk to the parents of the kids involved some have said they will never let there kids play with Laois again after that experience.
There level of communication was unbelievable .
There level of a game plan was so basic and lacked any vision .
Practice game ended in melees with laois game played on with mentors filling in the job of ref because he has walked off the field and refused to let the game go ahead. Players injury in mellers and not covered by any insurance.
The selection of players was all down to who you played your club hurling with better players walked away. Left with half the team being 15-16 years old.

I think I have demonstrated the I said I am not posting this to run down the individual efforts but simply to demonstrate that everything has to be right .
Shane has a big task ahead.

Let hope for better to come

2023 laois didn't make it out of group stage
2022 lost division 4 final
2021 -1997 any one any information???
1996 won division 4 final.

Seem laois have always been in division 3 or 4 of the competition.

See laois Celtic challenge team had a good result today .seem to turn over a fancied Meath 2-12  - 0-14. They are in the finals of the Celtic challenge competition now  . Anyone know who they are playing and where?

I seen that result

But should we as a county not be trying to aim higher ? I realised alot of  this u16 panel has played minor championship this year for laois. I believe they're not eligible to play Celtic challenge.

Arrabawn A QF   Score              Arrabawn B QF   Score
Limerick v Clare   4-22 3-14              Galway 1 v Laois   3-17 3-18
Tipperary v Cork 2   1-22 2-10      Galway 2 v Dublin 2   5-21 0-07
Wexford v Waterford   1-16 0-21       Dublin 1 v Tipperary 2   
Cork 1 v Kilkenny   3-18 1-19     Kilkenny 2 v Offaly 1   7-18 1-18

copy and paste from the score at weekend
if you believe that Galway put there second team out against Laois and there first team v Dublin 2 fire away who am i to argue with you. as you see Galway have only two teams in the competition.
i certainly see it as a good win for a Laois team.

Certainly hope they put in a good performance the next day out.
as per previous post Tony Forristal and sonny walsh placings are based on results up to that date in the u14 competition along with the fact how your county preformed the previous year. Laois had decided to play the early round of this competition using divisional team.
North laois, South laois , east laois and West laois .so both laois south would play one half and north the second half(and vice versa for the other laois  team West and east) it was to try and get as many involved as possible it didnt work out to well.  laois had intended to play the last two rounds as academy teams A and B .
the last date to qualify for Tony F and Sonny walsh was due to be held in thurles on the 6th of august , on friday night Declan Quirke lost his life.Rip
the format was changed from the original fixture because there was no  means of telling where team stood .hence laois 1 played cork first won by 2 points played wexford next and won well . 
as per my reaching out to you to get involved i don't doubt you may have been involved before but maybe if you care so much now's the time to get involved again ??if this u15 team has some future we all need to help ???

As Laoislad put up the results of this year competition .
Exactly as I said before . We best Limerick in Limerick lost to Clare but this was on the weekend that feile competition was played so we were missing alot of the team .
My post started by remarking how well our u15 done at the weekend by beating Galway 1 in Galway.
I have checked in with the management and no one has approached them with a view of helping out.
Tells alot about some of the knowledge men

Glad to clarify.
What went up on twitter was incorrect due to games had to be changed due to the death of Dylan quirke. As I said I was there what was put up on twitter was incorrect Tipperary and Wexford were in laois team one group. Hope that clear any confusion.

Ah now I see what you are looking at laois second team results
Why don't you put laois first team results . ?
As i continue to say after the phase of 4 regional team laois split into two teams and continued in that format right up to now.
So you seem to giving the results and scores of the second team
I was with the first team in my time there.
Now I am done having pointless discussions its certainly not going t bring anything to this team or laois hurling

My friend as I have already said laois played as divisional teams for a period last year so that was laois east,west , north,and South these teams played in the games approaching Tony forstell.
So laois played in the Sony Walsh.
Wexford played laois in the first game ls 5-11 wx 1.7

I have the team sheet here.i was there with the team . The email address for that laois team Is
If anyone wants to make contact I am sure the bluffer will be soon seen
I have and will continue to say that management need help if you are so good and knowledgeable why don't you help.
