Playing some sort of 3 team tournament among themselves this weekend or next I think ...

Just shy of 60 in there and all turning in for every session.

David Conway calling it a day I hear....

McMahon and Donoher are considering retirement.

Rest are back apart from Donie....Brian Glynn from Portlaoise is in there and flying it I heard!

Leavy could sneak this from what I hear...I don't know O'Neill very well apart from reffing  I have heard he puts in long hours but he is part of the clique and this is not favoured by many esp the hurling side...Leavy has strong connections in the camross castletown borris end of things despite being from Port!

Mountmellick and Ballyfin again. I'm not even going to bother because I have posted in detail my opposition to this particular arrangement in the past.
And there is no point in lauding Ballyfin for being a dual club at Senior level. Ballyfin GAELS comprises a massive area with a significant population in both codes. They will eventually reap what they are currently sowing- both clubs.

What are you on about....

Ballyfin might be a big parish area wise but they have a small population.

They have done very well for about 20 years now in both codes and are a credit the themselves.

I'm not sure about the Gaels routes in recent years but to be fair its been only 2-3 players max on either team.

Its a good avenue for slieve bloom lads to play senior football and the same for mountmellick lads wanting to hurl.

I said Ballyfin plus mountmellick would work well together as they were a big force under age for a long time.

I'm not saying I in anyway agree with it.

Overall the weaker clubs in senior(which Ballyfin are) should combine with a club of junior status to allow the level of competition to be better and allow the the likes of the slieve bloom lads or Barrowhouse lads or whoever it is to get a taste of senior football.

I know when I was young I would have loved that chance I never got it and its a big regret of mine I never played senior for anyone in Laois !

It might sound like I have it in for Mountmellick but a relatively large urban club having to join with a small rural club to play senior football? Mountmellick should concentrate getting up to senior on their own merit.
Ballyfin, a small rural club? Are they not a parish onto themselves?

Mountmellick should be ashamed of themselves for the situation that has developed, and Ballyfin are a testament to how a dual club should be run, but lets not get carried away here. Ballypickas are a small rural club.

Ballyfin deserve credit for Sure ...Mountmellick on the other hand mmmmmm

I can see this working as all the players have played with each other at juv level ...same for Timahoe stradbally barrowhouse and Joes...Can only be good to add to the quality of the senior teams!

I fancy us for this big time ;D

They probably should have gone with 2 groups of 4 and a group of 3. 11 is an awkward number to be fair.

Simples ..Top from each group 2nd best place team in the group of 4 to go into the semis!

I hear Ben Conroy has gone in w/ the county footballers for next year, rather than the hurlers. Is that right?

Hearing this...Infairness he looked very decent for Ballyfin two years ago!

Could be the first step in the two Arles's getting back together again..  And not before time in my opinion.
It will in its hole, do you know what jerseys they wear?

Inform us?

I heard after Donie got sent off v Port he made his mind up he was not playing for Laois in 2018

How true that is I don't know.

He is a massive loss but I think the door should be left open.

Hopefully him and John can come to some agreement .

Wexford away is now a tougher task .Even in the good times we have only won there by the skin of our teeth.

The O'Byrne cup playing Westmeath twice is a joke.
