Ricky Maher man of the match in a senior county final, maybe itís true after all, Portlaoise are that far ahead of everyone that anyone could win a county title on that team.

Jesus that is some begrudgary the day after a county final.

Itís points to an age old problem in Laois first impressions are fact,  this year Ricky got himself in super shape worked hard and shoved it down everyoneís throat.  Actually a lot more the type of personality in Laois that we should be looking for.  I donít know him from Adam but he should be proud of himself this year and is an example to every young player out there. Nothing like getting rewarded for hard work.

Well said

Donít worry they will get their lesson in Leinster just like Mount Leinster Rangers gave them last year
Is it R/E or Camross that have Leinster club titles ? ;D All these negative anti camross comments will do nothing but drive them on, ye do know that??

Drive them on to get bet in the first round of the leinster club championship,the only saving grace in all this is that the rest of the country especially Wexford, knows Ye now for the crowd of knacks ye are and will be well prepared



Ah come on the whole county will be behind them all the way to the final !

Delusional

Reading through all these comments here and social media its nothing short of a disgrace the way the camross team and people are being portrayed. The incident itself wasn't as bad as what is stated, king himself ran 40 yards to get involved so technically going by the rules that's a third man tackle and a red card for himself, an incident that last 30 seconds on the day has been circulated in slow motion and stretched to 1 minute and 40 seconds and looks way worse than what actually happened, Laois Today themselves have a lot to answer for, unfortunate what happened to king but these things happen sometimes in hurling and its not just in Laois or not just teams like Camross.

The standard of refs in the county is a joke, reading through FB and referee's from R/E making comments about sorting Camross out next year?, even R/E refs attacking the referee at half time in the dressing room is just shocking, were is the fair play here when officials are intimidating others? in the second half there were 12 frees awarded to R/E and 1 to Camross and also nearly 5 minutes injury time in the second half when only 2 had been agreed. There would have been murder after the match had Camross not won with this carry on.

As for the few pics on social media circulating and people trying to instigate that its this and that, people really need to see sense here, lads out drinking and celebrating all day like clearly wouldn't see sense at 3 o clock in the morning, I'm certain there was no real malicious in any of it. At this stage people really need to accept the fact that Camross have won.

R/E people have really showed there class over there attitude and comments since being beat on Sunday, they really are nothing but sore losers. Camross are champions for 2018 and in doing so have beat R/E 4 times this year so they are in my opinion and on paper worthy champions.

As a neutral,Iíve only one thing to say to you

Go f**k yourselves

I never said you had to be in the ĎAí?
I donít think that dropping to ĎBí level in the years you are short will destroy a club.

Difference of opinion/approach here. But I stand over mine.
The more often these Ďarrangementsí are successful on big days the fewer juvenile teams/clubs we will see in Laois, the lazier people will get about developing players, the smaller our playing base becomes.

What numbers had the 2 clubs to play apart and compete in a minor B championship?

It doesnít do a lot for the development of your normal 15 year olds playing minor as well as their other commitments,never mind the fixture clashes that are constantly taking place between 15s and minor in both codes

Iím all for long term amalgamations such as RE BK and RPG,if you are going to enter into a marriage of convience for want of a better phrase it should be for a minimum of 3 years,anything less shouldnít be even considered by the County Board

This is it exactly. Fewer clubs will bother trying to standalone. Which is fewer clubs bothering their arse to work hard at juvenile level, we canít afford this. As far as I can see, The Harps have done everything right with this group. They donít deserve to lose a showpiece final to a thrown together combo.
The next time The Harps arenít capable of competing at ĎAí Level on their own, this makes it easier for them to decide to jump in with someone.

In the interest of bias, I can also remember The Harps/Clough Ballacolla hurling together one year in the Minor or U21 B!!!!!

For clarity Keyser this combo was not thrown together because they couldn't compete at B, without this combo the club's in question would not have been able to field teams. There was only 20 players on the panel combined. Last year Ballacolla won the B with a panel of just 17. What is the alternative if a club hasn't simply got the numbers to fulfil a team in one particular year???

The alternative is to use your U15s?

Are you seriously telling me that there are only 5 players in this huge area between the ages of 15 & 17 who are not involved in Development squads. (if the poster above is correct with his/her info?)

Off the Top of my head

Mountrath would have 3 u15ís on that squad.1 starter and 2 lads that are brought on

U15s that are hurling in B have a big leap
To make in minor A

Nenagh put Thurles to the sword yesterday. All change in Tipp as well.

Final is between Nenagh and Clonoulty Rossmore for the Dan Breen Cup.

Thurles are a crock of shit. I've given up backing them as they have no heart or just lack a mentality that champions bring to big games... It seemed winning Tipp championships was easy and now they can't do that anymore

You clearly donít have a clue

Thurles were going for 5 in a row this year

Kilruane has them beaten in the quarterfinals and they dug it out

Loughmore had them beaten in the mid final and they dug it out twice

Their forwards are too light and knacky for the winter hurling of the Munster club

Ok read my bit in bold first and then read your bit in bold, and does that not match what you are saying? Thurles have plenty of big hurlers


Winning the Tipp championship ainít easy any year given the depth and spread of senior clubs,throw in the 4 divisional championship of which 3 are hotly contested and you have a fair slog to a county title,never mind this year when it has been ultra competitive

Iíd wager your knowledge of the Tipp championship is fairly limited.

How many games have you been to?

Maybe then  teams should just amalgamate  every year and if they have a particularly  strong number on certain  years pit in an A and a  B team.  So then you pick your club to join up with and your stuck with them for better or worse for a minimum  period of say 10 years
As regards the senior hurling  I wasn't  in cos I was  working  but it's sad that once  again we're  back discussing  an act of thuggery.  I talked to around 10 different  people who were at the match  and they were consistent  in saying that it was a blatant  dirty act and that the ref or linesman couldn't have missed it.  Why does this be allowed.  On another thread here people are saying a fella should be able to play the county final after being sent off for what was admittedly a harmless enough punch but now we have a young man in hospital  with serious injuries after being struck  repeatedly  with a hurl.  And the scum  that did it got to play  on!!!! Beggars belief! Time to come down hard on that stuff.  If a video  is there the man should be banned  for life and prosecuted  for assault  too

Unfortunately I think that canít now happen because he got a yellow card.
If the ref had done nothing, it's possible that the incident could be looked at again. However, with a yellow that's it.  Serious consideration has to be given to an outside ref as the local refs are too close to the teams as there is such a small pool to pick from. They referee them in challenges all the time.  I thought that John O'Brien was a breath of fresh air when he came here first.  However, he cannot be proud of the events he presided over yesterday. It was either a red or nothing. All he had to do was to look at Roddy's face and know this was serious. Nevertheless, it's easy to blame one man when the organisation is responsible to a greater extent. At a higher level, the GAA has a duty of care to all players. Yesterday we as an organisation fell well short.

His linesman told him it was a straight red and he disregarded his advice

Within milliseconds of King getting done,there were 2 Camross wild pulls which both warranted yellows at the very least.

Also there was a legitimate RE 65 waved wide in the first half which had came off the keepers legs,I donít know what the umpire on the stand side was looking at.

Purely neutral observations

The reality is that we have approached the county board (the 3  other portlaoise parish clubs are fully aware of this) with  a proposal to get 2 national schools and Portlaoise College designated as Clonad schools,we feel would go somewhat towards providing a Hurling  option for children that isnít being provided for currently in Portlaoise parish,.We would hope to make use of the Portlaoise College facilities for training also.

Best of luck Clonad. Hopefully county board approves! Can you say which two national schools are involved?

Not at the minute,but they would be 2 schools which would have very low participation rates as regards the GAA,Dwayne

The latest one doing the rounds is that if raheen parish gaels break up underage colt will take any young lad living in the clonad area as clonad are technically a portlaoise club while clonad area is in raheen parish. You couldnt make it up

This is surely a joke?! Colt, at underage, have practically nothing coming through.

Think some people are putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5

Clonad arenít looking to break up the RPG amalgamation for starters,the amalgamation at Juvenile in a lot of RPG teams is backboned by both Clonad mentors and hurlers and we have bought in fully,the fact that others havenít is a bit of a disappointment.

Am I being churlish to feel sorry for the Harps minors who lost to a three club amalgamation today? This alliance is just for this age group and they are not together at any other age.

Whoís the 3rd club MM?

CB,Mountrath and ?
