Anyone able to answer this one?

Guy gets a straight red in a county final in a lower grade - intermediate for example.

Does he serve the one match suspension in this year's provincial championship (a different competition?) or the first round of next year's senior championship?

Junior A final was pretty poor last night. The Harps never raised a gallop and you'd have to wonder about the standard of the teams they beat to reach the final.
Not that Annanough will mind. They were comfortable winners. Should have won by more.
Good to see them win it. They wanted it more. I was talking to a couple of Harps lads after it and the feeling was "it's only football".

Still that annoying "GAA Discussion" and "Hurling Discussion" persists.
As if, somehow, hurling isn't part of the GAA.
Surely it should be "Gaelic football Discussion" and "Hurling Discussion"?

Ger Brennan strongly linked with the Louth vacancy too.
We'll probably wind up with Luke Dempsey!

Still no county senior football manager named. Whoever it's going to be should be in place by now and watching the remainder of the championships. There's no substitute for seeing lads in the heat of championship action for their own clubs.

Strange to see that whoever produces the program have the Graiguecullen goalkeeper named as Danny Maher for the past few games even though he was the county goalkeeper 2 years ago. Very shoddy journalism and shows how much the Co. Board know about the players. Even Laois Today don't know his name is actually Danny Bolger which surprised me to be honest as they are doing great work covering sport within the county.
Is it possible that the lad changed his surname? I know Ryan Giggs used to be Ryan Wilson!

Think Stradbally might have enough to get by a very inconsistent Graiguecullen team. Emo should have too much for Clonaslee. Bally Abbey also should be a bit stronger than Courtwood.
Killeen v Portlaoise could be a lot closer than expected. Portlaoise aren't really hammering anyone but they still should win coming down the home stretch.

Wasn't he ousted before the county final?
Ousted or stepped down? Depends who you talk to really🙂
There was a story at the time about money and using another club's facilities which I can't fully remember!

Paul Kelly is apparently strongly tipped to get it. Ex Naas and Thomas Davis manager. Don't know much else about him.

As far as Im aware, top teams go into semi finals with 2nd placed teams playing thirds in quarters.
I think top teams go in to semi finals with the three second placed teams playing off to get the fourth spot.
I think the third placed teams are out?

Should be Ballylinan against either Arles or Crettyard in the final of this unless Mountmellick get their act together.

Think Emo might beat O'Dempseys.
Portlaoise and Portarlington are certs. Killeshin might make it third time lucky v Killeen.
Graigue to edge The Heath and Joe's and BA to end a draw and go to penalties!
Would have predicted Ballyfin and Courtwood last night. It's noticeable that the dual clubs - Ballyfin, Rosenallis, Park-Ratheniska and Clonaslee are all likely to fight out the relegation battle with possibly Killeen getting dragged into it too.
It's hard to play championship every weekend in two codes with some or a lot of the same players.

Surely having managed men's football at some level is a prerequisite of the job?
Although, had Billy any prior experience?

The All-Ireland final is next Sunday so they want to leave it free of club games.

That Down number 13 Brannigan is a quare bad footballer! :)
How did he finish the game?
Id say he'd have no bother roasting you though
That's hardly the point. I'm in my 60's so you're probably right. I just failed to see what he brought to that Down team today.
