Would give Phelan and O'Loughlin another year each . Nothing gained by changing those positions next year . A bit of continuity needed .

I think O'Dempseys as a previous poster said giving the Town a game . Not sure about Joes , potential banana skin first day out against the Heath. Lot of other teams on an even scale .
Ballyfin will on a Damage limitation mission while Kileshin without Attride will find it tough going .


Anyone know of any decent bars up there its a town i havent ever had a pint in

Ryans pub is about 600 yards from the ground and is a good lively spot before matches .  A lot of people will gather at the Navan OMahonys clubhouse where in fairness there is a fine bar and if your driving a pretty large cark park . Prepare to wait though afterwards as its a nightmare getting out of there.
I recall been in a pub called Oflahertys back in the mid 90s when we played Meath ,the day Pat Roe got the line after his duel with Tommy Dowd . Back then it was pure Gaa Pub ,not sure about it now .

Going with that team Tony except I think Farrell will start , perhaps at Paul Kingstons expense .

Chrimtain, that's a bit out there don't you think . Hardly Criticism in fairness . Is there something your not telling us .
Personally I think Gary Walsh starting would take some of the burden off Donie Sunday . Wylie and Monaghan will be targeting Donie and perhaps Walshs presence in beside would be advantageous. Evan playing further put where I think he's more effective at This level .

Lads how about Collins back corner back and Strong in the half back line rotating with Damien OC...?

Such a refreshing interview from an inter- county manager and its clearly evident his influence on the entire panel and set up .Laois have nothing to lose Sunday week . We are facing an incredible challenge against the possibly one of the greatest teams ever .
I can't recall a Dublin panel  without Bernard Brogan, Connelly or Cluxton collectively not involved on a matchday for the Dubs . It'll be interesting to see how they'll utilise Comerford considering how important Cluxton is . Comerford hadn't a single save to make when introduced against Longford . We can't make the same mistake .

I do agree that playing this competition in March /April like before would be a better option. However with this  new format of no inter-county action in April it doesn't seem feasible .
Maybe a return to a knockout situation ,less matches and spread out over end of
Summer and would have less inpact on local championships ..
It's difficult one .

Interesting to see the Laois starting 15 considering the impact Walsh,Evan and Niall made coming on the last day . I do feel Benny Carroll can be more effective being introduced as sub as he's capable of making an instant impact with his style of play .
Encouragily for us our bench is stronger than Carlow's and that's going to be major factor come Sunday .

Billy said after the game;
“If you are not allowed use your senior players, there is no reason why this competition could not be played in July or August.”
Any chance we could play a bit of oul club football Billy?🙂

We get it SCFC , your not a fan of Billy . Move on .

Was at the match and would agree with Junior . The standard was poor as basic skill levels go . Both sides effort couldn't be faulted . I'd worry about us against Meath who seem to be very strong  at this level .

Well I do know heslin wasn't playing by choice so his return will lift them . Not sure about Dolan and the others .

I've just realised that the Wex Offlaly game is at 7pm, after our game, clashing with the Liverpool VS R.Madrid champions league final at 7.45. Why didn't some bright spark in GAA make our game for 3pm and Wex Offaly for 5pm? People can have an interest in Gaelic football, hurling AND soccer too - that is possible you know.  ::)

Silly from HQ . Can't imagine any record crowds at the Tipp and cork and Down and Antrim either , both which start at 7pm also . Surely there were other options !

Yes heard that too . Left training half way through after announcing his resignation . This means by all accounts that Heslin will start Saturday ..
Still think we ll take them . There preparation can't have been ideal . A first half performance though like the one down in Wexford won't suffice this time .

Attrides  role in this team is vital particularly in an offensive sense. You could see how difficult Wexford found in tracking his runs and so much of our threat stemmed from his forays from the half back line .

Heslin is doubtful to play at all this year nevermind been fit for the Laois match . I'd be more worried about our disastrous record in Tullamore in recent years .
