Laois / Re: Leinster Senior Hurling Championship 2020

Probably two threads / conversations on the go here (1) Our Senior hurling manager (2) Structures for Hurling Development in the county, number 2 needs a lot of discussion and planning & good people back involved ( Cheddar, Pat etc & more GDA positions filled and working )

Number 1 , some ideas, Other than some names already thrown out by Laois Today & Leinster Express

 Jeff Lynskey from Galway ( Would also have a very educated input for our Development structures, has done brilliant work in Galway underage )
Willie Maher, highly regarded in Tipp Circles, just left the Cuala Job after two successful years
Darragh Egan , may be tempted like Eddie to cut his teeth now at inter county management
Stephen Frampton - Ballygunner & Waterford
Pat Ryan Current Cork U20 Manager, possibly already lined up for the Cork job in next year or so
Diarmuid O Sullivan, good experience gained in the Cork set up, high profile
Brendan Bugler ? very new to coaching but was on Davys ticket in Clare
Declan Fanning , highly thought of coach with Tipp & Na Piarsaigh (Maybe with Ken Hogan managing?)
Brendan Cummins
Liam Dunne / Willie Cleary Wexford

Just a few ideas. The players will move on quickly so we need to be moving on this immediately with a selection panel put in place and get moving,

Disappointing to see the management team stepping down,

I do think all the talk of massive progress is a bit exaggerated.
Still huge work to be done on all our structures & coaching.

I also think Eddie was always going to go at the end of this year, to look after his reputation & future prospects, he was feathering the nest putting out the anti county board vibe for a long time this year. 

The interview delayed this decision, now he walks away a hero & laois county board, players & hurling being left in a bomb site yet again,

I fear for us over the next 2/3 weeks.
I think we will get two beatings, hope to be wrong.

I really wish our County Manager would be a bit quieter in the media / Social media

Mad Mentor,
I would suggest you take down that video link, not sure where it was got or available but I know the management team, who I have been critical of, have put in massive work behind the scenes going to games, I donít think we should hand this to Offaly to study

I am as we all are here huge Gaa people, but the only reason the plug was pulled so early by the Gaa was to save more bad press to save the inter county season & the money it brings from tv rights 💰.

On another previous point, Keyzer, agree, Iíve watched PJ Scullys goal, brilliant goal, brilliant ball from Foyle, most would have knocked it over the bar,
I was watching one of the BK coaches who was outside the barrier telling Scully & Dunphy to keep deep, obviously something they have worked on, as do Ballacolla

Feel it would have been a good final.

Canít play County Final on Saturday but the hurlers of The Harps, Portlaoise, Clough Ballacolla & Borris Kilcotton can go to Carlow tonight put on a Laois Jersey & hurl a practice game 🙃🤪🙃🤪

Laois Clubs being kicked again by HQ, Games allowed to go ahead but Gaa wonít let,
All to keep the cash cow of the Inter County Season safe.

Ridiculous that the Hurling finals can not go ahead this weekend but lads are supposed to train away til November or December for their day.

Eddie wants all county panelistís to go in & train with the county three times in the coming week, including the players from the six clubs hurling next weekend, & is putting pressure on the players to be there.
Is that fair?? Time for Clubs to say no & Counth Board to say no.

Mike Quirke does not require any footballers still involved the week before their club game.

Was just about to come on to say exactly that, having a go on local media, unchallenged night I add, to have a go at Laois county board, & talking out of both sides of his mouth,
On off the ball & national media criticising Wexford & counties ramming in club games,
Then suggests a two week championship for us ??!!

I hope any players involved with their clubs in semi finals still are no where near county training until thatís over

So the first night back training & next morning county final is brought forward a week and stuck under lights? ? Sounds like Eddie giving orders
There is no way the Senior Hurling County Final should be played under lights, if they want to bring it forward a week, play it on the Sunday at least.

Any thoughts on the County resuming training?
Big crowd back last night for training,
I do feel itís very unfair to be trying to pull the players that are in semi finals into training before the club is complete.
& now I see Eddie getting the county final brought forward a week and on under lights ??

Are we not able to get a couple of decent knowledgeable hurling men to do a bit of commentating & bring a little bit of life, surely someone that can know names, describe set up, understand what teams are trying to do, & know the hurling clubs / scene ?? 🙄

Huge result for Rosenallis the last day out, shows they are capable hurlers, but also reflects on a very poor Camross performance, and may have shown how things were not right in camp when no response or life was shown to Rosenallis start.
Rosenallis hurler to a smart system that suited them carrying out ball & everything Fitzpatrick touched on the day turned to gold, but Camross were shockingly poor.
Borris Kilcottons dismantling of Ballinakill May have broken Ballinakill enough to drop down, hard to come back from that.
Castletown have parted ways with their manager Martin Carey, with native Patrick Mullaney taking over, their doing a lot of work as a club on facilities and juvenile they will give it their all to survive at senior, I feel they may well improve and put in an improved performance this weekend & give them head to defeat Ballinakill in relegation

The top 3 all seem to be in good form, Rathdowney Errill yer to fully hit top gear but motoring nicely, Abbeyleix will be a step up again from the last day but theyíll have enough

Clough Ballacolla and particular Picky were flying it the last day, theyíll be trying to shoot a big score ( as will Rathdowney Errill) to get Rosenallis in the semi

Borris Kilcotton have a tricky outing Saturday, should have enough to get home ahead of Rosenallis, At the back and up front hard to see Rosenallis hitting 2-20 again, or maybe they are the coming team thatís not getting our credit yet

Borris Kilcotton
Clough Ballacolla
Rathdowney Errill

Relegation Castletown v Ballinakill
Semis Borris Kilcotton V Clough Ballacolla
          Rathdowney Errill v Rosenallis
