One would imagine that Stradbally will win but saw them against The Heath and they were very poor. A repeat of that and they could be in trouble.

Good win for Graiguecullen tonight with a great second half comeback against The Heath finishing on a scoreline of  ---  Graiguecullen 0-10:   The Heath 0-8

Graiguecullen turn on the style in second half to see off The Heath

What an enjoyable game last night,graigcullen  started off poor but just looked leggy and brought no intensity the heath on the other hand just played defensively counter attacked to better effect game was poor with one team dominating,what unfolded after half time and whatever p clancy said to them lads omg they came out like demons some of the football along with there switchs was a joy to watch they rattled off 8 scores and missed two goal chances and there fitness levels look to be very good i was just totally impressed with there attitude,i felt sorry for the heath they had chances near the end to draw the game but i didnt think they deserved it,they are missing players if they had them they would be such a strong side,but all the plaudits go to graigue well done

The Heath typically cant put back to back performances in championship. I am delighted they lost as all they did was filter men back (which every team does) but they then didnt break out when in possession. They had so much of the ball around the 45 and D area but not one forward was able to stand up or do something different. Any big team will lick their lips are getting the Heath the next round. To blow a 5 point lead while playing defensive is utterly inexcusable & I am sick of the same failings for this crop. RANT OVER

The first half last night would have put the worst insomniac to sleep!

Strad v Ballyfin well I'm delighted to see ballyfin win equally because I'm a portlaoise man and the great stradbally once again fight relation with probably mountmelick gaels kilcruise and clonaslee gaels where the vicarstown lads would love to relegate them
Ballylinan full value you for there win joes were poor
Portlaoise lads we're awesome and won't be stoped doesn't matter who's over us we're too strong on on our day

Very impressed with Ballyfin's younger lads yesterday - Connolly and Tyrell in particular. They played with no fear and got their reward. Stradbally looked awful. Defending in particular just shocking.

Ballylinan are bound to be happy with a win over the neighbours and I thought Cathal Dunne was good for them. Give them a year or two and they could be a force. Small bit early for them this year although aside from Portlaoise they have nobody to worry about. I can't understand Brian Daly moving to Josephs when they were that under strength. His old club are now in a relegation battle in Intermediate and it's hard to work out what he has achieved by causing so much fuss.

Portlaoise playing like last night are lovely to watch. The passing, the movement and class is worth the entrance fee. Some obvious failings (no natural ball winning midfielder and backs not great) but overall far too strong for Laois I would have thought

I don't think Ballyroan will fear Port the same way we fear Kileen.
Maybe ye should have
