Barrow house should be ok. They provide the vast majority of Na Fianna OGs compliment of players so they always have a few. They are also close to Athy and usually pick up a few strays from that area. Kileen are in trouble unless they re start their recruitment strategy of old. Kilcruise will muster a few every year as they are getting the majority of the Arles kids coming through.

Is the national school in Killeen still open? They would get those kids if so.

I see of all the Laois Clubs asked to fill in a Questionnaire and have a consultation night to tease out issues.

Only 1 Club refused to do both

Clonaslee

About 1 in 4 clubs didn't return the questionnaire. Return rate of over 75% was good. Very good in fact; far higher than I'd have thought.

Only 3 clubs didn't facilitate a meeting to allow their club members have a say.

Clonaslee
Kilcavan
Clonad

A huge pity as I'm sure there are members within each ckub who would have a lot to bring to the table.

Is David O Brien not a Clonad man?

I would also like to mention the proposal to allow both Ladies Football and Camogie a firmer standing within the county as a major positive, it is criminal that the Ladies County Teams and finals are not played in O Moore Park.  It may not be feasible at juvenile but there is no justification at Senior Level.
Fair enough but it would be nice of the Ladies Football and Camogie people to meet the GAA a bit on it. They refuse to come into the GAA yet want all the benefits of their infrastructure.
You've f**king nailed it there.

Looks like the GAA are going to try to get them to come in under their wing after all....
