We'd been relegated from D1 in 2005 so I assumed it must be back then but turns out we met in our brief return to the somewhat upper echelons of D2 in 2011, Laois won in Markievicz by three.
When is the last time Laois played Sligo seanie? Must be a good few years?
You have me there but I've a notion we played each other in Portlaoise not that long ago. I seem to remember something about missed or scored penalties.... Owenmoresider of Sligonian will be able to clarify no doubt. I used to be on the ball with these things but the memory is shot this weather. Getting auld!
Laois really impressed me that day, ive been to Portlaoise a few times aswell, never much in it, Armagh hot favs on Sunday but they have been very inconsistent last few years, will this match be streamed on any Armagh gaa website?
I see all Laois's home games are on Eirgrid, pity we have them at home this year, don't think ill make it home for any league games this year,
I think the not having Cadden or Kelly are huge losses and we need Hughes back fit, team selections will be interesting, if we stay up ill be happy, we have a tough start at home to Armagh and then away to Tipp, last year we were grossly inconsistent, beating Kildare in Newbridge in an extroadinary game kept us up
Good luck to our lads anyway
