Interesting report. http://www.midlands103.com/sport-centre/ryan-to-be-appointed-in-laois/

I think this should only happen if a viable internal candidate is not found. Personally, I hope Arien Delaney gets it. A bit of fire in the belly, knows the club scene inside out and the hurlers, and should get a few more from Camross on board.

Interesting question - then this appears: https://www.laoistoday.ie/2018/08/01/a-decision-on-the-new-laois-hurling-manager-to-made-shortly/

Down to three men, reading about them all on that article shows that the selection committee have a bit of a dilemma to reach a decision.

I don't believe Arien Delaney will be proposed by the selection committee.
I have heard that an appointment is wanted before the business end of the Laois Championship and this is hampering his chances as he is committed to Shinrone.

It would be interesting to see who John McEvoy would have as part of a management team.

Disappointed to hear that regarding Delaney, whom I would take any day of the week ahead of McEvoy.
I don't see why an involvement with Shinrone until the end of their campaign would preclude him from being appointed. They are unlikely to be hurling until St Patrick's Day. If Delaney didn't see a minute's action of the Laois SHC he would still have a vastly superior knowledge of local talent, in comparison to any of the other candidates, including McEvoy.

Is he still hurling with his club? Personally would have preferred a Laois man. Was anyone else willing to take the job?

I think Eddie Brennan would be a very good appointment.

Post by: Keyser SŲze on August 09, 2018, 10:48:36 AM
Donít think itís a bad appointment. Iím sure itís not cheap but neither was Kildanganís finest!

He lost a knockout U21 game to a last minute goal. It hardly defines him. You donít get those jobs in Kilkenny without being well vetted.

There are a lot of positives to this- young, in touch with the ďmodern gameĒ, will want to enhance his reputation, talks sense and will command respect.
Itís also worth remembering that there is no obvious successor to Cody at present and if he puts in a solid couple of years with Laois, there is no reason  that his name wouldnít be in the mix.

Heís not a weary journeyman. Iíd be very surprised if he wasnít enthusiastic and organised. Iíd imagine he would have a good setup. He will surely attract anyone that is capable of playing for Laois. Iíd imagine he will take no bullshit.

Iím delighted with it actually. Possibly even better than Delaney.

Who did ye want boys, Cody? Davy?

The lack of a Laois candidate is what disappoints me the worst.

His management team is crucial.
Hopefully there's a strong Laois presence.

Delaney would have been my first choice; I hope he takes up the offer of coming in with Eddie Brennan. He'd add a lot to the set-up and would hopefully be the man to step in a couple of years down the line.

As an aside, I see plenty of people hoping that Brennan can get our 'best players' back in....who are we really missing??

Aaron Dunphy
Ciaran Collier
Dwane Palmer
Ronan Broderick

Can't see too many more missing unless we're going back to lads with a lot of miles on the clock.

What has Delaney been offered?

It would be good to see someone like Delaney in there with Eddie Brennan.

Zane would hardly come back in would he?

You neee subs too.
Not impossible to think that Zane could do what Shane Dowling does for Limerick.
Even Willie Hyland who is still of an age where itís possible. There would be nothing wrong IMO with creating a small older group within the panel and managing their training load appropriately.
But I do think the plan would have to be to stick to using them
As impact subs and not as central players.
Can both build for the future & make use of best resources.
Imagine introducing Willie & Zane with 10-15 mins to go in games and having them float between FF & HF line.
Maybe Iím dreaming!

Jack Nolan is very enthusiastic about the appointment anyway. As he says an 8 time AI winner with a modern outlook on the game and with probable aspirations to manage the KK seniors in the future. If the Laois hurlers can't buy into that? If his managerial ability comes close to his ability as a player then he could be a great match for Laois. Worked in Portlaoise for a long time so would have an insight to the Laois psyche and has to be well aware of the Laois hurling scene.

Good appointment and hopefully Laois hurling gets behind this appointment and cuts the crap of inbred negativity that surrounds us all about Laois hurling.

Eddie Brennan is nobodys fool, he is not here for the money .He will improve hurling here if we as a county back him and his mgt team.

Hopefully we get a few good selectors in with him. In both football and hurling it's been a battle to get Laois men to commit to being selectors, you'd have to imagine there are few lads out there that would be interested in working with him. Maybe Jackman, even though he was on the selection committee, could be an option. He's coaching down with Castlecomer and seems to be big into that side of things. Might be no harm to have him involved. Arien Delaney either, if he was open to it.

Brennan will get the chance to see every senior team in the championship at least twice now too, which will help him get a handle on what's out there in the county. He might be enough of a draw to keep Healy commuting for another year as well, although we can't keep expecting him to do that. I don't know how he's done it this long.

I hope it goes well, best of luck to him.

Should create a buzz in the Hurling seen but has he got the quality to work with?

I like this scenario.

Any date for ratification of Eddie Brennan as manager or his back room team??
Donít believe Delaney is interested as going in as a coach having put his hand up for managers job
Title: Re: Laois Hurling Manager 2019
Post by: redsetanta on August 30, 2018, 11:10:48 AM
Surely with all the media speculation and the fact we are at the knockout stages of the championship this should be ratified. There has been silence since it was announced. Has anyone asked Brennan publicly since his name was put forward?

The clubs have to be consulted. Appointment to be  confirmed at September meeting.
