Super win for our minor hurlers today again wexford. But we nearly thrown it away. 12 mins left up by 7 wexford down to 14 men and we go with 2 sweepers instead of pushing on and trying to win it by 10.Thank God we got that late goal and we deserve to win.

Fantastic win. It's hugely important that we are able to grab a win like that from the jaws of defeat. After leading the whole game it would have been criminal to lose it.

Kilkenny next for the minors in Portlaoise next Saturday 7th May at midday if the Leinster GAA website is telling the truth!

As highlighted a few weeks ago by some posters- the madness of the championship structure at underage level is coming to fruition. This should not be allowed to happen. Very unfair on the young Rosenallis players.

Ridiculous. If you were trying to figure out a way to encourage people to give up the sport, you might start with something like this!

OK. Give us the answer, then. For years, 'A' standard teams graded themselves as 'B' in order to win handy titles. Is that good for clubs or players' development, either? This way, teams find their own level before going into the championship proper. How else would you propose going about it?

By u15 its clear enough who is A and B at each grade surely or is nobody watching these players?

Give us the teams who will make the i15  A championship and the B championship then


And we can come back in 2 months time and see if you were 100% right

Absolutely superb win for the u17s against Kilkenny. Fully deserved.
Offaly next Saturday.
Some sprouts of hope for the future fingers crossed  :D

Some performance that, defense was exceptional I thought. Quinlan is a super hurler and Deegan was excellent from frees with a massive one at the end. Minor hurlers giving us something to cheer about despite a tough year.

Offaly will probably go in as slight favourites in final but no reason Laois can’t go and beat them if they play like they did against Wexford and KK.
