I would be a traditionalist too and would prefer to see a jersey with the hoop half way down. In these days of commercialism they will change the jerseys every so often and they need to change it somewhat. Still it would be good to see a design at some point that resembles the older jerseys.

Those 2003/2004 jerseys will be a collectors item in years to come. Still have mine packed away somewhere.

Nerve racking stuff for Portlaoise alright. Plaudits to Lillis. Very important point to go to extra time and then his goal. A real leaders performance. That game should stand to them big time. You cannot beat a game like that where you come out on top after such a tight battle.

Hopefully a decent crowd in Portlaoise. Probably be more people from other clubs in Laois than people from the Town.

R/E game being televised. Hopefully the lads can perform and win this one. It's great to have Laois teams on the national broadcaster.

The real issue us that there is no All Stars for the Joe McDonagh teams because Laois were nominated here.

All the other competitions have an all star selection, Ring, Rackard, Meagher. McDonagh the only tier without one.  Aside from Laois the likes of Westmeath, Carlow etc should also be recognised.

Looking at the success of Rosenallis at senior level. As was said in another thread it is the coaching of young players that has them there. I am assuming that they did not have numbers underage either to compete on their own but they have managed to get two senior teams. To be honest without knowing much about it the Ballinakill Abbeyleix amalgamation was baffling.
How much better would Mountrath or Mountmellick be if they put as much effort in as Rosenallis have.

In fairness they should have kept the McDonagh Cup all stars. Whatever about Laois getting nominations for the main all star awards the likes of Westmeath, Carlow etc deserve better. Rackard, Ring etc have their own awards so why omit McDonagh?

Rathdowney/Errill play St Rynaghs in a couple of weeks. The Rathdowney players spoke about their desire to do well in the competition in the interviews after winning the county final on Sunday. Laois clubs have a poor record in the competition over the past few years failing to win first round games. Winners of this game will play winners of St Mullins v Cuala.
KK and Wex winners yet to be decided.

St Rynaghs travel to Portlaoise in two weeks to take on Rathdowney/Errill. R/E intend a big push for a win in Leinster club. Hasn't happened for a Laois team in a while although they have come close. They have a good mix of current county players, King, Purcell, Kavanagh, Kelly, Killeen as well as old campaigners like Joe Fitz, John Purcell and Brian Campion

I learned a new word on Sunday from an oul lad I was standing beside at the game.

He told me that B/K and R/E were both 'mangalated' teams.

I only got in for the second half of this game and a Rosenallis were looking like easy winners they were that dominant. They were far more tenacious in the tackle and looked the hungrier team. They also had forwards who found it easier to get the points. It would have been daylight robbery if The Harps had of squeezed a win with their rally after they got the goal.
Harps looked disorganised and at times looked like an intermediate or junior team.

I didn't think the ref was great at all and let a lot of dangerous pulls go unpunished. It was a hard physical game and I felt he let it flow at times when he blown. He certainly blew enough times for over carrying.

Also, can someone tell the Harps to change the colour of the jersey numbers. Very hard to make out who was on the ball at times because it was hard to read the number.

Best of luck to Rosenallis in the Leinster campaign but between the hurling and football all these games will catch up on them. Clubs in the county should look at their set up and take it on board. A fantastic achievement for a small rural club.

What exactly have they done to get to this point?

Few observations from the game.

Backs on both sides were dominant overall. PJ is a very reliable free taker but doesn't give enough from open play as opposed to Mark Kavanagh say.

Paddy Purcell is a beast of a man. He took a few heavy hits, one that we could hear under the scoreboard and still came back for more. He's a great athlete.

King got some lovely points and it begs the question as to how the final might have gone last year if he played for the full game.

John Purcell was excellent I thought.

It was great to hear both PAddy Purcell and Roddy King speak about giving Leinster a right go as they will be representing Laois. This was just after the game so it shows the mindset. Fair play to them and I hope they can beat St Rynaghs. They definately are best placed to compete in the Leinster club game.

The ref wasn't too bad for the game although I though their were times he could have blown sooner when things were getting heated at times.
