In the car at 4.45pm. Parked up in Dublin at 6.30pm at the latest (6.15pm I'd say). No problem

We are in the Munster group with Tipp,Lk and the losers of Cork/Waterford,provided we overcome Carlow

We can be drawn against
Dublin
Westmeath
Kk
Losers of Offaly/Galway

First name drawn has home advantage,Draw next Monday morning on Morning Ireland

First drawn doesn't have home advantage as the teams are in 2 separate pots.


From the GAA website

"The first team drawn out will be given home advantage in most circumstances."

Bowl 1: Tipperary, Limerick, loser of Cork/Waterford, winner of Laois v Carlow playoff
Bowl 2: Kilkenny, Dublin, Westmeath, loser of Galway/Offaly.
A team is taken from both bowls and placed in a third bowl and the first team out of that bowl will have home advantage.

Draw can't take place until 26 June as if Laois win playoff, they can't draw Westmeath as they have already met but Carlow can play Westmeath if they beat Laois.

More encouraging news on Laois GAA twitter.

The Laois U15 squad who played Tipp. Game 1 Tipp 3-10 Laois 1-09. Game 2 Laois 3-16 Tipp 4-11. Thanks @TipperaryGAA

Really? From what I can see they lost the first game and then barely won the second. Hardly anything to dream of winning all irelands

Beating Tipp is never to be sneezed at. Our seniors are a long way off that mark so it's good to see the underage players competing with the top counties.

Saw this on the Laois GAA twitter. Encouraging.

Well done to our U14 hurlers who had a good win over Limerick today and to our U15hurlers who had two great games with Waterford. #goodwork

I'm going to indulge you here a little Zooming around as I'm intrigued by your agenda


So if he was "sacked"

On what grounds was he "sacked"?

No agenda other than I feel a bit sorry for the chap for losing his job.

I don't know why he was sacked, I just know that he was.


Man gets "sacked" and coincidences of coincidences gets a job locally straight away in the same area,even before he has worked out his notice.

The Gentleman in question went straight from one Job to another better paid Job,that's the reality.

now back to lads that don't  "have f***king cars",who is that dig aimed at?

don't tell me you are using the cowardly option on a message board to get a lad "sacked"

The Irony..........

I'm not doing anything to get anyone sacked.

I know for a fact that he wasn't looking for another job. He was very happy working with the GAA and wanted to stay there. He was gutted when told he was being sacked. After this, he (like anyone would) applied for other jobs and fair play to him he got one. You can call it a coincidence if you wish but that is the timeline.

I have no idea about him working out his service etc. Maybe he was owed hols or something but I do know He hasn't started the new job.

The GDAs (Begley excused) are not working out. Is that a job for life, or do they actually have targets? Can they just churn out year after year of muck and be allowed to continue?

Couldn't agree more donnie brennan and james kelly have turned into council workers appointed through nepotism lazy no vision but untouchable should be a clean sweep every 3 -5 years

By all accounts James Kelly is finishing up ie being sacked in three weeks time. Looks like you got your way and got a man sacked from his job based on the opinion of cowardly faceless keyboard warriors. Hope you're happy.

Kelly wasn't sacked,he left this job after getting a better paid position in another organization.

Best to climb down off your high horse now son,you look foolish enough there as it is.

You're the one on the horse. Be careful when you fall off. The ground is quite hard these days.

He was sacked. He applied for, and got, the other job after being told he was sacked.

Perceptions are everything. Just because he didn't play for Laois doesn't mean that he was a bad coach. At least he has a f**king car anyway.

The big disappointments from that minor team of course are Colm Stapleton and Joe Campion. They should be backboning our senior team now.

Is it definitely a cost cutting exercise? That seems a bit strange. Who said it was to do with costs?

The article says that  but nor confirmed by the chairman, hurling coach gone as well for same reason, yet  McConville has being brought in.
Must be doing it for nothing.

The McConville thing is what's throwing me. There's no way he's any less than Kelly or McGeehan so I doubt very much that it is cost cutting. It just doesn't make any sense.

A lot of clubs have two teams at U12. Maybe that's why they're down twice

Cavan have just reformed as well so we could include them. For example Carlow, Offaly, Cavan and Kildare could join up and enter as C.O.C.K... ie What this thread is a load of.
