Post by: Ogie on January 31, 2022, 02:02:00 PM

Was just reading about this on Laois Today. They also mentioned how well the previous manager had done with The Harps.
That man has some agent!!!
It took 3 attempts to win the Senior A (I think!) and then they didn’t win a game in the Senior championship once promoted.
Baffling.

Agreed Keyser, another Laois Today favourite,

Baker would be brought on board with the Garda connection, he’s at Superintendent rank now in Tullamore, Laois Offaly Garda Chief John Scanlon is The Harps Treasurer

On the Senior B side of things Abbeyleix have brought in Derek Dunne ex Clonad, Down Camogie manager with Barney Naughnane of Kilruane coaching formerly of Clough Ballacolla & Borris Kilcotton they would be a good bet to go back up.

Any word on Portlaoise ?

Watching Naas go all the way in the intermediate championship and Kilmoley of Kerry make the final, it wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility for a club like Abbeyleix (if they were to win Laois this year) to give the Leinster intermediate championship a right rattle. They have a good age profile and with some experienced campaigners to boot, 2022 should be a year that they really target getting everything right and everyone on board. Clough Ballacolla showed what Laois clubs are capable of on the Leinster stage with a bit of confidence, determination and drive.

Abbeyleix should win the senior B but might not get it all there own way senior B is always tricky. And updates on other senior B managers? Trumrea have a former Camross player over them I hear. Also well done to laois lads hurling with Carlow It last nice great win. Would be great to see a laois man lift the fitzgibbon Cup.

Usually a Kilkenny team lurking in there having just won the ultra-competitive KK intermediate title that makes light work of the rest of the teams. Naas form the backbone of the Kildare team which will probably rise through the ranks to the same level as we are in the coming years.

Any word on who is training Plaois and Colt/Shanahoe for the year ahead?

Very poor form of the Clough Ballacolla club not to fulfill either club semi finals this weekend, hiding behind ‘player welfare’
All of the other clubs with dual players & Senior / premier intermediate/ intermediate teams all able to fulfill their fixtures
Complete disrespect to the competition & other Laois Gaa clubs

Very strange alrite. could they not have moved one of the games? Bit much to concede like that.

Can see why borris and Portlaois wouldn't be happy as opposition were too strong.

I see you have to have bought tickets online to be able to go to the game. I don't like the way they are going with ticket sales. There is no outlet for people who might decide to go on the day and pay at the gate.

Seems to be the way things are going.

I get it in the inter-county scene at Croke Park etc  trying to judge the attendence etc. plus not really having to deal with county boards to the final but for the club scene it should be also cash at the gate.

Times are changing.

Agree 100% and maybe everybody don't know how to access tickets online.

There should be 4/5 hand held credit card scanners at every ground when there’s a game on

No one wants to be a volunteer and have the responsibility of handling cash anymore

Great idea that.
Think County Board invested in a batch of ticket readers; card readers are cheaper now than ever before. Should be done straight away.

Think Camross will win the 1B Final. I think they'll give Abbeyleix a run for their money come championship.

Not as sure on tonight and won't make it in either. Have a feeling camross are going that bit better but rdowney have some serious players to bring in. Maybe camross to win this one but re to catch them later in the year.
