Laois / Re: The future of laois hurling

The call has gone out. Now is the time for all of the armchair critics on this forum, like myself, to get involved at underage level and make a real contribution in hurling, football or both, otherwise, time to shut to f**k up.

Delighted to see Cheddar back. Hopefully the upward trend for the hurlers can be continued.

Great points made and real passion for Laois GAA displayed here, but nobody, including myself, has gone to their clubs and sought nomination for any of the posts on the County Board in order to break up the current cosy set up. Is this just a forum for hot air?

I would love to see or hear an interview with the county board members on Laois Today / Midlands Radio 3 / Leinster Express regarding what they see as their mission and vision for Laois GAA.

I wonder if the county system in football is not at breaking point? Another year or two of beatings like Dublin handed out to Meath and Laois in Leinster  and it will be impossible to motivate players to represent their counties.

I know it's only half time in the Leinster final, but it's hard to see things getting much better for Meath.

Surely the GAA must see now, how big a problem they have in Leinster.

Doing some foolish things like losing a free out through stupidity.

The very best of luck to Laois today. Come off that field with your heads held high.

Apart from the recent match in Kilkenny when GAA HQ decided that the match was going ahead there, I don't recall instances when we turned down the opportunity to have Dublin matches in Portlaoise. I'd imagine that the Laois CB would be under huge pressure from local businesses to have the Dubs come down to Portlaoise if they had the opportunity.

When did we have the opportunity to play Dublin in Portlaoise and turn it down?

Seems crazy that Laois have played Dublin in the championship on 34 occasions and not once in a Laois venue. I'm not claiming that it would make any difference to the result on this occasion, but surely, given that no supporters are allowed, our county board could have looked for this match to be played in Portlaoise. I saw where someone has suggested elsewhere, that this unfairness would never happen in any other sport.

It's a monumental task, but I hope Laois can come through the Dublin match with our heads held high. I hope the Dubs don't play in top gear from throw in to the final whistle. I would take a 12 point defeat.

Hard to know what to take from all that. We played with very little intensity for a large portion of the game. Daly and Bolger seemed to be driving us forward, and brought the others into it. Fermanagh crumbled on the back foot, but in fairness, they were winning a very tame encounter up until we sparked into life. Great to win. Great to see some fight. Even better to see some younger players stepping up.

Love to see real fight in a Laois team. In next years division 2 I'd like to see more of the under 20s teams of last 2 years introduced. In the meantime hopefully we will get over Louth or Longford.

We may not have the players in either football or hurling, but it's a great consolation to know that OMP floodlights are only the very best thanks to the foresight of our wonderful county board. They deserve great credit for getting their priorities right.
