Strategic Review of Gaelic Games in Laois 2017
« on: July 07, 2017, 12:14:25 PM »
This will be very important for the county going forward. The last review covered 2009 to 2015 however we are in a very different place now than we were in 2009.

Now is the time to speak with the people involved so voices are heard and subjects debated.

A positive step, and I like the look of the committee. No one from the county board on it, which is a start. I'd like to see some current club players and/or managers added, I think their input would be important. Be interesting to see what the review comes up with.

You do realize it's a Strategic overview,not a tactical,day to day overview

Some good people such as David O'Brien and Eamonn Jackman on board,who are passionate hurling people and would have an insight and experience of the juvenile issues in the county.

I would also have no isssue adding to the committee,a few experienced non laois people who may or may not be residing in the county,who would bring aspects of best practice of their home county to the table as well.

For example someone at a high level,involved with the Cork underage hurling pipeline  which has undergone a complete systems overhaul from u12 to minor in the last 4/5 years.

One final caveat,you can have the best review and plans presented to the CB,but what use will it be if the recommendations aren't  implemented.

Does anyone have a copy of the last review 2009-15 to see what recommendations were implemented?

Good, but I hope the report will not be allowed to gather dust when it does emerge from this exercise.

FOr those who have the time to read it here is the last review for 2009 to 2015. I haven't time to go through it right now but it will be interesting to see what was acted upon.

Wouldn't know a few of the names on that committee but best of luck to them. Not an easy task and quite a short timeframe between now and Convention. Id imagine club managers wouldn't be able to give the time needed to drive this, I'd be disappointed if their opinions and ideas were not sought.

I suppose the committee will really just compile and put together the report; the real success of any such plan will rely on the quality of input from club/county coaches, players and officials. I would hope all clubs will be contacted; there are plenty of voices here, hopefully they will bring their opinions and ideas forward.

Paper never refuses ink,  I am sure they will have great meetings but where exactly are we going to find money to implement this strategy.  We have had a few of these down the years and all I have seen is things getting progressively worse.  it's a PR exercise end of.  I am sure we will follow the Offaly County Board on this, their one is still in it's dust jacket.

most of these plans will be put into place by volunteers

you need serious training, upskilling and support for those volunteers

The 2009 review was indeed a mighty document I have no doubt a small fortune was paid to a PR company to present it.

Anyone know was there any of it implemented.

Don, do you not notice that everyone else is ignoring this poster because they now realise he is not worth a comment.
Please do the same and let's all get back to some decent dialogue here.

Comments like you've just given is just schoolyard stuff, you should have more pride in yourself...
