Tough crowd to please.

Not too long ago all we had was the Leinster express and the Nationalist, both of which are a far cry behind LaoisToday in terms of local news and especially GAA. They also have a 21st century online presence. I think they are doing a fine job and I don't really see that there is that much bias in terms of one part of the county over the other. They are a young small team and provide plenty of entertainment and enthusiasm.

Aye

Football Today

Even when its a hurling story they find a way to shoehorn a mention of football into it

Editors Bias and all that

On one hand fair play to them. Certainly filling a gap and providing accessible content.

On the other Id have to agree the two way fawning over anyone who engages with them is childlike.
Reply to a few tweets, mention them in a few of your own, and suddenly you are a celebrity and will be mentioned non stop. One particular club on the Offaly border gets a lot more coverage than their status and grade would suggest they should- going as far as giving updates on stag parties.
Its a little bit sad from all involved, but an example of playing the game for your little bit of fame.

Id also have to agree with Clonadmad- some of the errors/omissions on their Reeling in the Years podcasts in relaying to hurling were criminal.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......

Nail on the head.
Look, it's a good service. The matchday blogs are excellent. But some of the other stuff is a bit cringey. And it might be just me but (if you're reading this lads!) you really overuse the word "serious"!
Serious style. Serious craic. Serious excitement.  ;)

Looks like LaoisToday is the now the best source for fixtures in the county. They have all the date and fixtures for the league. Good luck try finding that on laoisgaa.ie

Laoisgaa.ie used to be excellent for fixures and results. You could filter fixtures by club and find things easily. The current website is a mess.

I'm reluctant to criticise anyone involved in the website of in the PR side of things in general. It's a huge voluntary task.
Some of the stuff is very good such as the Laois GAA TV service and the social media channels but the website really seems to be neglected. I've lost count of how many relaunches or reboots it has had now over the years but it always seems to lag behind other counties. A pity.
Well I could keep it above
But then it wouldn't be sky anymore

Leagues up and running now and spectators are allowed but no sign of anything on the official website. Bit of a farce if you ask me. Are we all supposed to work out the league tables ourselves?

Looks like the Co. Board have lost all interest in the County teams in Laois. They never promote upcoming games and leave us to find out about team selection and venues by any other means we can.
Awful website and mirrors what the Co. Board think about the players and fans..

Just by chance I've managed to find this years clubs fixtures/results on the website. You have to scroll a mile down the fixtures page through 2019 and 2020 to get to 2021  >:(

I see what you mean, the page should be reversed to read from newest to oldest.   >:(

Credit where its due. The fixtures and results now appear at the top i.e. the most recent ones appear first.

They must have been reading this thread. Well done lads, its a bit better now.
Still a lot of work needed on the site, our u20 footballers are out in the championship tonight and not a word about them...

Match is being streamed live on the Wicklow Gaa Facebook page tonight.
