Quote from: Joeythelips on February 19, 2024, 09:19:10 PMGet promoted, beat Offaly, give the Dubs a reasonable rattle and get to Taitleann cup final seems like goals that are within reach this year. 
Think that's spot on. Promotion is a must, would be nice to turn over Offaly, you'd be hoping if we got a shot at Dublin that McNulty would have us better organised than our last couple of meetings and would be nice to go well in Tailteann Cup.
At the moment it's not really clear who'll be the better teams in the Tailteann Cup but you could certainly wind up with teams like Kildare, Cork, Louth, Clare, Westmeath in there who are all very decent (by our standards).

Tough job for Roe though. It looks like he won't have Colm Murphy, Paddy O'Sullivan and Robert Piggot at all.

Very experimental team v Wicklow today. 6 or 7 debuts.

Haven't actually heard that confirmed about Port. Also, Paddy Dunne is staying on with Clonaslee.

Heard Martin Murphy has moved to B Abbey.
Kevin Doogue back with Graigue.
Portlaoise gone internal again with Aidan Fennelly.
Presume no changes in Ballylinan, Stradbally, Joseph's?

Quote from: GAAFan2003 on December 14, 2023, 09:28:31 AMHow'd the games go v IT Carlow and Limerick this week? What kind of starting 15 did we have out?
Didn't hear hwo the games went but that the team v Carlow IT was more experimental while the team v Limerick was more stacked. Didn't hear the actual line outs.
Anyone able to answer this one?

Guy gets a straight red in a county final in a lower grade - intermediate for example.

Does he serve the one match suspension in this year's provincial championship (a different competition?) or the first round of next year's senior championship?

Junior A final was pretty poor last night. The Harps never raised a gallop and you'd have to wonder about the standard of the teams they beat to reach the final.
Not that Annanough will mind. They were comfortable winners. Should have won by more.
Good to see them win it. They wanted it more. I was talking to a couple of Harps lads after it and the feeling was "it's only football".

Still that annoying "GAA Discussion" and "Hurling Discussion" persists.
As if, somehow, hurling isn't part of the GAA.
Surely it should be "Gaelic football Discussion" and "Hurling Discussion"?

Ger Brennan strongly linked with the Louth vacancy too.
We'll probably wind up with Luke Dempsey!

Still no county senior football manager named. Whoever it's going to be should be in place by now and watching the remainder of the championships. There's no substitute for seeing lads in the heat of championship action for their own clubs.

Strange to see that whoever produces the program have the Graiguecullen goalkeeper named as Danny Maher for the past few games even though he was the county goalkeeper 2 years ago. Very shoddy journalism and shows how much the Co. Board know about the players. Even Laois Today don't know his name is actually Danny Bolger which surprised me to be honest as they are doing great work covering sport within the county.
Is it possible that the lad changed his surname? I know Ryan Giggs used to be Ryan Wilson!

Think Stradbally might have enough to get by a very inconsistent Graiguecullen team. Emo should have too much for Clonaslee. Bally Abbey also should be a bit stronger than Courtwood.
Killeen v Portlaoise could be a lot closer than expected. Portlaoise aren't really hammering anyone but they still should win coming down the home stretch.

Wasn't he ousted before the county final?
Ousted or stepped down? Depends who you talk to really🙂
There was a story at the time about money and using another club's facilities which I can't fully remember!

Paul Kelly is apparently strongly tipped to get it. Ex Naas and Thomas Davis manager. Don't know much else about him.
