I personally think Portlaoise struggle numbers wise. I see the same faces all the time, and they are the real heroes in that club. I've seen some of their Intermediate and Junior teams playing without a coach, and at juvenile level, they are hardly lifting up trees. The club needs support at every conceivable level in my opinion

I think mentors are an issue in Portlaoise not player numbers,

they don't have enough of them as HF said and id agree with him there,

it seems to be the same few faces there the whole time.

it also seems that they sent back nearly half their ticket allocation for the premier intermediate hurling final last friday, shocking if that's true.

Theres no point in talking about putting a second club into the town when you cant get enough people to act as juvenile mentors for the existing club.

Clonad,Park and the Heath probably have a case to answer too and should be more proactively going into the town and recruiting also.

I know people in Tullamore are highly pissed off over this and are prepared to dig in on it. All the money Offaly GAA have coming in but for some reason they are trying to screw the Tullamore club.

Its a messy situation. The GAA club own OCP and are within their rights to rent it as they see fit. OCB want a rent drop but have really got zero bargaining power as there is no other facility in county capable of hosting games so they must rent it. Tullamore GAA are driving a hard bargain on it but Im not sure what OCB were hoping for. A rent drop as a show of good faith to new regime? If that was the aim it all should have played out behind closed doors. Nobody budging now.

Never knew Tullamore Gaa owned OCP. Is there many other counties in same boat bar Croke Park?

Fair enough apologies. It’s just amazing to see for all this hype that Offaly are going places that something this obscure gets reported and a stand off you wouldn’t expect to happen happens.

Anyways back to Laois Football related future and see the Laois Strategy and Action plan doing the rounds for review. Will be interesting to see if any changes
Some clubs taking up GDA in shared capacity for 2022 a positive. Will be interesting to see what future holds be it increase in number/quality of coaching of players.
Senior Championship numbers: Was mooted years ago exploring reducing 16 teams to 12. Like turkeys voting for Christmas but will it ever happen?

We say this a lot but is it true?
Some of the most progressive clubs at senior now have had to come up through the ranks in recent years. Surely contesting and winning finals is more appealing to 18-23 year-olds than near-constant relegation worries and the odd 'good year' where you make a semi-final?
