Is Clonad not a second club in the town ?
Maybe clubs should look at their own set-up and stop looking for ways to break-up Portlaoise?
Typical Reaction!! Channel your bitterness into something more constructive in your own club ?

Eh the clue might be in the name of our Juvenile set up

Raheen.
Parish.
Gaels.


There are 1200 odd,boys between first class and sixth class in the town primary schools.

How many are juvenile members of Portlaoise GAA club?.

Do Portlaoise have the resources to tap into the potential in the primary schools ? I doubt it ? This is a county board issue . Whether they play with Portlaoise, Clonad, The Heath etc is irrelevant. Because these numbers are not being reflected in Portlaoise GAA Juvenile teams is hardly totally their fault . There is a far bigger issue here being ignored by people who just want any opportunity to have a go ?
If 1/3 of the underage playing population are in Portlaoise schools , why is there not a GDA there semi permanently developing kids for whatever club they wish to play for ?

Huge credit to Cullohill NS who have qualified for the final of Division 1 in the cumann an bunscoil hurling. Defending champions; great consistency for a relatively small school.

Interesting to see that Emo will play in the Division 2 Final. Great work up there.

I understand both Killanure and Camross both have teams in finals. Great work going on up in Camross.

County board issue? f**k sake, do every club want the county board to take them by the hand and do everything for them?

You know what, maybe you're right, maybe it is a county board issue, maybe in fact, its a leinster council issue, and a croke park issue. Maybe its as simple as what we've been saying all along, Portlaoise are incapable of handling Portlaoise town, and it needs to be taken out of their hands. You might just be right.

Saw this on the Laois GAA twitter. Encouraging.

Well done to our U14 hurlers who had a good win over Limerick today and to our U15hurlers who had two great games with Waterford. #goodwork
