Great to see a bit of character and grit to get the win
.
There's not doubt it wouldn't have happened without the subs and lads are right, I don't remember seeing a bench with as much experience or talent on it.

I suppose the only downside is that Offaly could have been much further ahead at half time which would have made life a lot more difficult.

Anyhow, a major hurdle out of the way and hopefully the lads stay focused and power on to the final.

U20's seem to have made a right go of it last night.

Meath had the ability to get goals and the scoreline doesn't reflect how close they were. Two very early goals and then one in the last minute.

Good win for the U20's last night and straight through to a semi-final.

Do we know who they will play or is there a draw after q/f's?

Minor footballers unfortunate last night in a very evenly contested game. Offaly got the goals which got them the win.
Longford beating Dublin means there's no chance of them qualifying from their group.

There's probably a shield competition that they now go into.

Dominant performance and blew Leitrim away in the second half. You'd have got good odds on Dempsey scoring the first goal. The change from last year is immeasurable. Totally different.
In saying that they won't get the same space against Offaly or other teams in the championship.
A great weekend for Laois gaa. Be great to do the double over Offaly.

Very good performance. They played like a team confident that they would beat Carlow. The goals finished Carlow but all round Laois were on top. Great spread of scorers and we have match winners in Mossy and Ger.

Looking forward to the clash with Offaly.

If they approach that game with the same focus they are more than capable of winning.

What would you consider a big crowd? Wasn't a spot anywhere along the fence when I got there. Either end full and the far terrace area was full.

That game againt the Dubs last night was a tough experience for our lads.

They were blitzed in the first half. Dublin far superior with and without the ball. Don't think they lost one of their own kickouts and turned over plenty of ours.

In fairness to the Laois lads they made a game of the second half and outscored the Dubs.

Next up is Offaly next Wednesday evening. The loser of that one will be out.

Hopefully our lads bounce back.

Big crowd there yesterday but not an ideal spot to hold such a game.

Best of luck to the U20 footballers tonight and the minors tomorrow night.

Are either of these groups expected to do well this year?

Credit where it's due. Promotion in his first campaign and back to Div 3.

Hopefully we have a decent run in the Tailteann Cup this year.

Really need to be beating Offaly at home. Wouldn't fancy going to Westmeath needing the win to get to the final.

The extra game against Carlow is welcome and there should be an air of optimism heading into the the Offaly game.

It's a bit ambiguous.

GAA website says that the new `1B will consist of the top 2 in 2a while they say that the new Div 2 will consist of the teams that finish 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th in Div 2a as well as top 3 from Div 2b.

So it is the top two in the table that are promoted or the two teams that play in the Div 2a league final??

Top two teams will be in the new Div 1b league with 5 other teams who will come down from the current Div 1a and 1b. Bottom two in each and the worst placed 4th placed team.

Likely to be Dublin, Waterford, Westmeath, Offaly and Westmeath.

Laois can't be caught now as they are 3 points clear in 2nd place with one game to go. My understanding is that the top two go up. Where did the 2nd playing 3rd come from?
