Down to Joe McDonagh for 2023. Kerry almost did the greatest of comebacks. That pointed free from a non tackle surely cost them.

Long range shooting let us down with a few very bad wides. We needed that early goal chance to go in to settle. Thought we made a few bad passing decisions. Pity about this result, a good minor team that done us proud all the same this year.

Watched him lord it in the air V Kilkenny hurling at U21 level a while back now - nobody lorded it in the air V the Cats in those days. An immense athlete and would have been the best at any sport he took up. Thanks for all of your service playing County JOL.

Good performance by the minors. If half our goal chances were converted we'd have won well.
Quinlan is a joy to watch.
Referee should have worn a Galway shirt.
All to play for V Clare next Saturday. I'd be quietly confident.

Is it not galway first at home next week?
Last week it clearly said on the GAA site that we would play the losing team from Galway V Clare.
Now it doesn't.
Strange.
Galway in Portlaoise tomorrow at midday I believe.

P45 for Cheddar.

Unfortunately so. I feel sorry for Cheddar - great dedication for Laois hurling, but his tactics were never great and rarely got the best out of the team.

Compared to Eddie Brennan, the Laois lads were lined out to get the best out of the team.

Where does Laois senior hurling go from here. Hope for a Kerry win next weekend to stay up, or go down to the dog fight that is the JMD Cup?

5-24 to 1-18 in the finish.
An 18pt beating.
We're back four or five years when we nearly crashed out of the JMD. We've regressed to Offaly's level.

Half time Laois 1-11 v 1-12 Westmeath.
They'll have the breeze in the second half.

Indeed - a huge game. Agree with your sentiments above.

Galway 0-25 v 0-09 Clare.

We've Clare then next week.

A win will see us through to the AI Semis.

If we draw, we need to not loose by more than 15pts to Galway and we will get through on scoring difference.

It's all in our hands now.

Depressing reading. https://www.laoistoday.ie/2022/05/19/injury-crisis-deepens-as-depleted-laois-hurlers-prepare-for-relegation-showdown-with-westmeath/

Won't be broadcast on GAAgo either which is disappointing considering the 6pm start. Perhaps Radio Tullamore Midlands Radio 103 will broadcast it.

Heartbreaking for the lads, to be honest I think the occasion fazed them. Our first touch was jittery at times - we looked nervous, whereas against KK we were much more clinical, so it's safe to say we didn't perform as good as we could have. Our aerial battles let us down too, Offaly had tall lads in key positions and we were unable to compete - especially in the HF and FF lines.  Offaly worked alot of diagonal which tested us to defend - and while we did cope well, off the shoulder running put us under further pressure - so with that a huge credit goes to the HB and FB lines for keeping their goal threats out (I think Offaly managed just 1 goal chance). A bit of panic in the second half with on the ground clearances, twice we ground cleared the ball and Offaly unmarked converted these gifts to points. Our workrate and heart was brilliant though - we fought for everything even down to the last whistle. Including kids there was rumoured to be close on 18K there last night which made the atmosphere electric. Fair play for everyone who organised busses of kids to come in - no easy task!
Hopefully we can grab a win over Clare or Galway which puts us into a semi-Final v Tipp.

Any dates yet for minor Round Robin games or who we play first?

We play whoever loses Clare V Galway on May 28th; We play who ever wins Clare V Galway on June 6th. Clare play Galway on May 21st. https://www.gaa.ie/hurling/news/electric-ireland-all-ireland-minor-hurling-quarter-finals-draw/

Over 10k expected? Whoa, that'll be lively.

Anywhere I've went they can scan the barcode off a phone screen, so there shouldn't be an issue.

Best of luck tonight to the lads. Hopefully we'll pull off a win. Breezy and sunny, so could be a game where one chases the other's lead.
