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.

Best of luck to the minor today. Looking at Galway  v Clare last week galway are a series outfit.

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.

Jasus that ref was absolutely terrible today! His decision making gave Galway at least 5/6 points in the end, awful stuff. Good performance again from the lads, they could have had 5 goals today. Galway keeper pulled off some great saves.

Great performance from the minors. Just a little more clinical and could have won.
They picked themselves up after the Leinster final defeat.

Thomas Gleeson is viewed as a very good up and coming referee. On reflection, I'm sure he will be disappointed with this performance. It seemed to be a case of natural biasism towards the more "elite" side in Galway in some of the decisions he made. He unfortunately proved the difference in the game and to Laois' cost. That Laois team deserve a semi final placing, however, Clare have had an extra week to prepare themselves for this game and with home advantage it might prove telling. I hope I'm wrong.

Best of luck to laois minors today. 60 mins away from a All Ireland Sfinal.

Not looking too good. Clare faster, better at passing, and much less inclined to fumble the ball.

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.

U16s had two squads out on Saturday - 'blue squad' lost to a Wexford selection by six, and 'white squad' beat Westmeath narrowly.

Thanks, did the 14s and 15s play?
