In relation to Tipp

I’ve been told by a teacher

It’s 4 Cumann na mBun School Squads,1 in each of the divisions

Schools send in only 1 player (unlike Laois where there’s no limit)

They train for 6/8 weeks and play games in that period also

Tipp would have 2 teams at u14/15 level

At that age group where selectors etc are from has huge influence on who/who doesn’t make these panels. Is there no portlaoise input mentor wise into hese squads.

Laughable comment in fairness

Just shows how little you actually know about the process

Pity Clonadmad is not actually from Clonad. It seems his real face is the former Laois gda from Kilkenny.
Does this mean you're not Batman?

Poor Batman

Wrong again

sign of the times....once upon a time rathdowney secondary were one of the big guns in "A" vocational schools....C grade is for the also rans.

as for no one from portlaoise being on the cumann na b panel...a shame....but perhaps Clonadmad rather than continually drilling away at hurling in Portlaoise GAA, a look closer to homemay be relevant.  If you are from Clonad, a once proud senior hurling club in this county, can you answer why the same Clonad has not produced one county panel standard senior player in the 21st century? is the raw material that bad, or is it the coaching?, because ye have all the facilties(fair play).

I wasn’t having a pop at Portlaoise GAA

I was pointing out the fact that no child from the Parish was deemed good enough to make a 38 man development panel.

Squad of 38 Hurlers on the Cumann na mBun school development squad

2 hurlers from the Health

No other hurlers from all the other schools in Portlaoise Parish.

Shur if we had the likes of Joe McKenna up here, we'd blackguard him the way we did Cheddar.


Sadly very very true. Could you imagine cheddar in the likes of kilkenny or tipp the role he would be playing -if he were kilkenny he would take over from Cody. But he is from Laois and was kicked through the door.

Cheddar was mentioned as a possible candidate for the position of head of games development in Tipp when the position becomes vacant


The reality is that in tipp or kk they have men of the likes of Critchley or Cheddar in every club driving them on

Nothing stinks..its just typical in laois..U get a ood manager and selectors..,and this happens..To be honest there should be no more running around after players.Let eddie deals with what he has,,,There are like spoilt childrens,let them on...
Ah thats grand so. Nothing to see here. Bate on lads.

Cody himself wouldn’t manage Laois and that’s the reality

Brennan is coming from a place where lads would shoot their granny to get even within touching distance of a black and amber jersey

we need critchley and cheddar to start back with underage and build a base of good young minors, that may be the long term solution.
Poor auld Cheddar. When things were going well, we couldn't wait to get rid of him and look to move on. Now he has to come back, when we're almost at a lower ebb than we were at the last time.

Stay away Cheddar, no man could save the ball of shite that hurling is in Laois sadly.

Best use all hurleys then for kindling,Good man yourself Don
Keep selling them to Limerick men, they seem to know what to do with them at least. And its not firing them through faceguards.

They might show us how to set up and run a proper underage academy too


Awaiting On Cue

It is further evidence that we are potentially going backwards. Just like the pre-Cheddar doldrums. No major new talent coming through, players won't commit (especially from Camross), a f@*king clueless county board, and growing animosity between certain clubs.

Eddie Brennan sounds like every county manager from Babs Keating to Teddy McCarthy so far.

They can’t all be wrong

Brennan’s coming from a county where the county jersey is viewed as something you’d shoot your granny for

In my opinion Abbeyleix took the correct course of action. I also think the arrangement with Ballyroan is a very practical one that is mutually beneficial. Ballypickas the big losers in it.
Can’t see how Abbeyleix amalgamating at juvenile level is a positive thing for Laois Hurling. The numbers are there at primary school level. Do what they have been doing- develop them.

My understanding is that ballinakill are very tight with numbers in a lot of age grades

They were in Abbeyleix at u11 this year,numbers are tight at u13 and u15 and they have 5-7 lads atu17
