Past players for Laois
« on: February 05, 2018, 12:47:43 PM »
Lads

I'm doing up stats on Laois players, but need help. If anyone could give me the first names & clubs, I'd be grateful.

Just to note, that the papers might have mis-named them, so D Conroy might have been D Conway and McDonnell might have been McDonald.

Also, R Miller was better known as Bobby Miller, so "nicknames" might be in use.

Thanks.

To start - these are all football. I will give the player and the year I'm looking at. They might have been at the start or end of their careers, or even been one-hit wonders.

1951
J Phelan
G O'Rourke
T O'Connor (maybe O'Connell)
J O'Rourke

1952
M McDonnell

If it was T O'Connell it probably would be Terry of Annanough.

OK. Could work better. The O'Rourkes were from Killeshin, though I have no first names. J Phelan was Jack, from Port.

Thanks. I have Tom O'Rourke in 1952, but a G O'Rourke & J O'Rourke in 1951. Were they all brothers?

Looking for a P Maher, an R McGee, a K Holland & a P Flynn from around 1931.

Kieran Holland. Either Durrow or Cullahill.
Further to this Richie McGee, Paddy Flynn, Paddy Maher and Kieran "Blazer" Holland all hurled for Durrow in 1928 junior hurling final.

Football or hurling? I'm thinking it's a misprint.
Could be Tommy in hurling.
