Laois / Re: Bord na Mona O’Byrne Cup 2019
« on: January 08, 2019, 07:18:03 PM »
Competition for starting places will be tougher this year I think. Only Brody and Dillon are guaranteed starters from Portlaoise in my opinion, maybe Lillis too. Anyone know about the cuts, who's in and who's out?

GK: Brody, Keogh, Osbourne?

FB: Dillon, Timmons, Healy, Seale, Campion, Booth, O'Connor, Kelly, Fennell, Holland

HB: Attride, Begley, Crowley, Piggott, Murphy, Buggie, Collins, Nerney

MF: Meaney, O'Loughlin, Lillis, O'Reilly, Bracken

HF: Boyle, Daly, Scully, Barry, Farrell, Glynn, Carroll

FF: Kingston x2, Lowry x2, Munnelly, Murphy, O’Carroll, Keogh, Conway

What about Sheil and Cahilane? Who am I forgetting?
You forgot Hitchcock, Tyrell, James Mullaney, Eoin Dunne, Paddy O'Sullivan and Brian Byrne anyway. There's a couple of Courtwood and Emo lads in there too but I hear they'll be going back to under 20s squad.

He was the only one that did not concede a goal, so that’s a plus.
He also hadn't a save to make! Crazy selection. Even the young lad for The Heath pulled off a couple of good stops and couldn't do a thing about the 4 goals.

There's a team of the week on Laois today there and it's easy knowing they weren't at the under 21 B final. No disrespect to Shane Nerney but he had nearly no impact on the game. Young Tom Kelly and O'Hora were miles better.
As for picking the O'Dempseys keeper?! The chap was in danger of dying of boredom😁.

Carroll got plenty of game time last year. Is he still involved? And Holland too? Finn refused a call up I heard.


Laois under 20s. Ronan Coffey (Portarlington), Mark Barry (O'Dempseys), Gary Saunders (Portlaoise).

Don't know much about the 17's but have heard good things about Paul O'Flynn and Sean Greene.

Killeen will have a change anyway. Their manager last year Gay Campbell is the Kildare under 20 manager this year.

Roddy isn't coming back in this year.
I wouldn't blame him.

Congrats to Mullinalaghta - big day for the little guy!!

Not the first half-parish to win provincial honours.  Can you name the others?
Walsh Island have 2. They’re a third of a parish.
Portlaoise have 7 titles. One of four clubs in the parish of Portlaoise.  Two dual clubs, one hurling only and one football only.

I wonder where the 2 Reddins and 2 Mullaneys stand in terms of playing football with Mountmellick next year?
With Gaels not allowed at intermediate level, the only way they can kick ball with MM is if Castletown pull their football team completely. Which is not impossible.

I presume the Castletown-Slieve Bloom link-up is dead now as Slieve Bloom are Senior A.
Of course. I missed that. Which means no Gaels teams at all in hurling next year and possibly just the two in football.
They are on their last legs. The divisional competitions will supercede them. There may well be a divisional hurling competition this year. I think the football one showed that it can be done.

3 lads from Port starting. A long time since they had such representation on a Laois senior team.
Is that a good thing or a bad thing ?
There's our Kildare poster again. Full of positivity for Laois.
It's the Byrne Cup ffs. If there was 15 Port lads it wouldn't matter. You try lads and see if they have something about them.
On Scully, wasn't he used as a forward before and didn't really make it? Now after a really good year at centre back for the club, he's picked as a forward again!

There was a motion passed at convention this week. All amalgamations and entries will have to be finalised by 14th January and there won't be any exceptions to that.

There's a very important county committee meeting next Monday night to decide what will and won't be allowed in terms of Gaels teams etc.

Doesn't come in until January 2020
Correct. My bad. Although the Gaels stuff will be effective for 2019.

There's no incentive for a quality site as there is no money in it, especially now Laois Today are hovering up sponsorship from around the county on their site and fair play to them, they do a great job. Only for LaoisToday we would be in the dark completely.

Here here. It is a breath of fresh air. A genuinely young, fresh and energetic Laois focused voice that seems to have its finger on the pulse of what is going on. I hope they are doing enough to keep them going as it is not an easy business. They make the Leinster look like a 19th century pamphlet. As for Offaly radio 3.....
It's good alright but there's a fierce focus on it on the area from Portlaoise to Stradbally to Port. I'd say it barely registers in terms of the south and south west of the county.
