both them and rosenallis with the quality of young players are ones to watch for the future
Port and Ballyroan Abbey too.

Fair play to Rosenallis. Decent chance of reaching a Leinster final now although the Kilkenny team will be no pushover. Senior champions in KK.

Haven't heard any yet but I heard there's vacancies in Killeshin, O'Dempseys, Annanough and Ballylinan.

Possibly needs a revamp. Two semi finals, a final and 3rd/4th place play off might mean dead rubbers being avoided.
It's a competition with potential but needs buy in from all clubs not just some. Running it without under 20 players is also something that should be considered. There was a case this weekend of a lad playing colleges Friday, divisional Saturday and under 20 Sunday. Burn out in October🤔

Big win for portlaoise this morning 6-9 to 1-14, guaranteed a semi final place now.
Was at it. Harsh scoreline on Joe's. Game was in the melting pot with less than 10 minutes to go. Few late goals well taken by Portlaoise.

Decent enough games tonight in Vicarstown.
Brian Daly looked very good. Also liked Martin Doyle and O'Halloran as full backs and wing back Connelly of Ballyfin.

Portlaoise won the under 15 A championship at the weekend and the minor B tonight. Signs of a revival in the town?

Ah look, I know what you're aiming at. But league and All Ireland packed into 4 months ending in July? GPA wouldn't have it.
There's no real solution to the club v county issue. Greater minds than you and I cannot solve it. The April club month isn't the answer either.

The sooner we have one 4-5 month inter-county season that runs through the summer months the better.
That would kill the clubs though. It's bad enough trying to keep club teams going as it is but try telling your senior team that they have no games from April to August and you wouldn't be able to print the Aer Lingus boarding passes quickly enough.

Ratheniska hammered sarsfields yesterday, apparently jack priestley and Sean O'Neill didnt play with sarsfields. They opted to play with the divisional side instead. U20 players shouldn't be selected for the divisional games while the u20 championship is on.
If this is true it is nothing short of a farce
from the start i said this divisional set up was a farce and of no advantage to anyone only the few pound it raises for charity

How is the divisional set up a farce when lads would rather play in it than with their own clubs? There seems to be huge interest from the players in the county. Might be a few things to iron out but if people want to make it work it could open the door to stronger club football in Laois. For example, a Clough Ballacolla footballer managed to score a couple of goals in a senior match. How often would you hear that with our 'traditional' structures.
He plays his football with The Heath to be fair.
Surely confining the divisional championships to players over 20 makes the most sense. Most of them young lads have enough football to be kicking with Sigerson, county and club under 20.

Think I'll try get this thread back on topic.
Portlaoise hammered SPG with their seniors back Friday night.
And two of the favourites Courtwood Emo and Port met yesterday. Decent game with a lot of county players on view. Goals either side of half time won it for Courtwood Emo. Owens got a cracking goal just after half time.

Portarlington 5 ? 

Courtwood & Josephs 8 & 9

No doubt there is a few decent players from both St Josephs and Courtwood but this makes it farcical.  That they out number Port by this percentage.
7 Courtwood not 8. Port haven't made their under 20s available either which might explain some of it. Also Portlaoise should have been with that North team so without them it weakens them a lot. Thought Hatch Finlay might have been named. Rory Bracken too.

No Attride or Done in Divisional teams . Otherwise as expected . Thought Gary Walsh would have gave it another go this year but perhaps he's off travelling again .
Some strange names in there tbh. Obviously some selectors pushing lads from their own club. Maybe no harm to see these lads. Could be a hidden gem out there somewhere.

Without having a shot at any ref in particular, I would say the senior football championship is badly missing some of the better refs who are not refereeing this year. Eddie Kinsella and David Moore in particular but I would also say I haven't seen Joe Brennan, Eamonn Strong or John Flynn.
