Brilliant win, Quigley's return is a massive boost for us. Even without Begley, O'Loughlin and Benny Carroll we proved that we now have a strong panel that can come in and win a game of that ferocity which is something that we haven't had for a number of years now.
Carlow were very cynical and but for a very fussy referee the game could have turned very nasty. Stephen Poacher's influence on them was plain to be seen but even with that they didn't have the skillset to beat us, even when their survival in the division was the prize at stake. We now head to Div2 where we should improve even more so things are really looking up for these lads and I'm delighted for John Sugrue and his management team for what they have achieved.
I didn't see what Poacher did at the end of the game but there was a lot of verbal's between himself and the Laois crowd as he went down the tunnel at the end of the game. After all his carry ons during the year neither his home county, Down, nor his adopted county have achieved anything to shout about...

It's possible that after the Round 7 games are played there will be no need for the Louth-Westmeath game to be played, same as the Laois-Antrim game in Div.4 last year didn't need to be played.
This would then mean that the Div.3 final could go ahead as planned and there would be no disruption to the "no inter county game" rule for April as April was set aside as the 'club month.

Are Offaly not on 5 pts and Carlow on 3 with Offaly willing in Carlow meaning they have a better head to head and will stay up no matter what ?? I think Laois will go up with a shock for Westmeath in Longford (I hope)

Totally agree, I've said it here before, if you ignore smart alec comments the poster usually gives up but reacting to them is exactly what they want and they feed from annoying people. Just ignore them and comment on things that are worth something..

Here is what needs to happen for us to get to the Div.3 final and get promoted:

Laois: We will get promoted if we beat Carlow and if Westmeath lose to Longford
Down: avoid defeat v Louth and they'll go up (superior Head to Head v Westmeath)
Offaly: must beat Sligo and hope Laois beat Carlow to avoid drop.
Carlow: need a draw.

Just a question lads. Does head to head or points differences come into play first. If we beat Carlow andif westmeath beat both Louth and down then will the fact that we beat down put us up

Here are the rules concerning this:

If two teams finish level on the same points then their head to head record separates them.
If three teams or more finish level on points then they’re separated by scoring difference.

Offaly sent us down to Div.4 two years ago beating us by one point and delighting in it, hopefully we can get our own back on Saturday and do the same to them.  #revengeissweet#

Laois manager John Sugrue felt his side petered out, after a lively start against Westmeath in their football league encounter in TEG Cusack Park on Saturday.
“We started brightly. Looked lively enough for 15,17,18 minutes and then just petered out.
"Westmeath got to grips with us and then we really struggled to make any inroads in the second half of the first half and then right through the second half,” Sugrue said when speaking to reporters after the game.
The Kerry native agreed that his side never really looked threatening throughout the match when the question was put to him. “You could absolutely say that (weren’t threatening). Some of the ball in was of poor quality.

"Some of the contesting for ball inside was of poor quality as well so it’s a two-way thing we’ve got to learn and we’ve got to get back at it and try and be better again the next day” the Laois manager said.
Sugrue praised his defence and goalkeeper as his side did not concede a goal over the duration of the match but ultimately they did not score enough to win the match. “Out the field we probably let them away with a little bit too much open play without getting enough heat on them.

"In saying that now we didn’t concede heavily at the back so great credit is due to the boys inside and Graham had a fine game as well” Sugrue said.
Sugrue does not believe that this result spells the end of Laois promotion hopes, instead opting to focus on the task in hand against Longford on Saturday. “We’ve got a game next weekend against Longford and we really have to focus on that and try and get ourselves back on track.
"If we do that then we’ll see what the last two games bring but really it’s as narrow as next weekend now. This is not over. We’ve put ourselves back on our heels again in this league campaign and it’s up to us to respond.”

Sugrue feels his side were particularly poor over the duration of the match, but feels that the off the ball department wasn’t a million miles from what it could be.
“On the ball we were particularly poor today, off the ball we weren’t as good as we can be but we weren’t a million miles off what we could be,” Sugrue said.
Sugrue agreed that Westmeath were finding it easier to win frees when the question was put to him post-match. “Yeah you could probably say that. On the balance of things I think these videos get reviewed and I think that will be reviewed in that regard” Sugrue said.
Laois face Longford on Saturday night in what is sure to be a match of upmost importance to both teams.

Think Tom Darcy was from Carlow
