Laois / Re: Laois Intermediate Football Championship 2018

Possibly schools but not with Portlaoise club..... Only got it second hand so maybe it's being overstated but sounds like there's not too many coming from there. Maybe a town member could clarify it cos it sounds unbelievable to me too
I presume this is Knockmay? Itís not 0, but itís at a pathetically low level. Portlaoise arenít serving the town. Moving out to Rathleague meant they basically abandoned large parts of the town. Speaking to teachers working in town schools they will tell you that many students donít know what Gaelic games are and a huge amount have little or no basic skills.

Thatís where we are. Fixing it will take radical steps.

Laois / Laois Divisional Championship

Should be an interesting concept. Managers will be vital. Get a sponsor on board, fire together some kit, a trial system when players are or should be around a decent fitness level. Some merit to it.

Not traking up old coals but I think it needs saying...Brian Dalys desire to join a senior club is beginning to bear fruit...he looks like a very good senior player after training and playing   with St Joseph's

Mother of f**k.

No arguments, merely pointing out the fact that they went out on their own and made the summit, a fact that deserves recognition. Its easy to chip at the Arles', but its not our local row, and mediation in the past has failed. Either they fix it themselves, or nature will take its course.

Killeen , Kilcruise , Barrowhouse is an amalgamation that needs to happen. Itís the only realistic chance at this stage for players from those clubs to win a senior championship been honest about it. Good luck telling the likes of John Conway that 😂😂
As a Gaels amalgamation it cant happen. Two senior clubs and a junior club.  :'( :'(
Give it time.

Well it seems Kieran has jumped ship. Not sure much of a loss and hopefully they bring in an active player to the coaching set up.
Would you not prefer they being in a coach?

If we got another like Hally weíd be laughing

Congratulations to Graham on his All Star Nomination. Hard to see him beat Beggan, but worthy recognition. Hopefully he'll keep his head about him and drive on again next year. Gareth Dillon can count himself hard done by, as worthy of a nomination as the likes of Sean Andy from Galway or Che Cullen from Fermanagh, both of whom had a blanket around them throughout the year. Dillon went toe to toe with some of the best in the game one on one most of the time and acquitted himself handsomely.

Yes there would be approx 48 teams but one or 2 might not field. This is teams not not clubs. Some(not many) clubs field 4 teams.

Aye I suspected that was the case. Still though that's impressive and I never knew hurling was as big there.
Thatís more than in Offaly!
Well done, have a choc ice

More of an iceberger man meself. Ye can take Delaney back any time ye like.



Also, if thereís anyone on this from the main hurling clubs in Leix that arenít from Camross, could I send you a PM or vice versa.
We are all from Camross.

How inconvenient.
Mind your step.

This is a great read, about time the rest of the counties woke up and did something about this totally unfair favouritism of Dublin...
Only in Ireland would this carry on be accepted.

Gaelic football is dying, dying, dying ..........

The guy who wrote that is unbalanced in his hatred of Dublin. An Athy man who "liked" a tweet about Johnny Cooper's stabbing - hardly impartial.

He's not wrong. The Dublin attempts to discredit him as much as prove it.
f**k him. I wouldn't wipe my arse with anything he writes. Even hates Laois more than Dublin.
His views on Laois are irrelevant in this argument. He has the Dubs on the run, theyíre frothing st the mouth trying to discredit him.
I'm not arguing. I just won't read anything the c**t writes. 😊
We should be grateful he's out there rattling cages nonetheless.
