Well, Mountrath do seem strong in all the B comps. Some fancy Port for the u15 B. In any case, Mountrath and Port. will be in the final.

I was under the impression the football championship was being 'parked' until after the inter-county?

I agree w/ blueandwhite1. Of course the club championship is important, but we are unfortunately in exceptional circumstances and some sort of accommodation is needed. Lads calling for clubs to pull their players are as short-sighted as they come. Do we want to see Laois hurling doing well on a bigger stage, or not?

Exactly. Sure, they played all-Irelands under lights, why not county finals? Much worse is the fact the stands will be virtually empty.

In fairness, they did lose three weekends last month, so it'd be hard to put out a competitive team if you were to wait until after the club was over when they'd only have - what? - three weeks together as a full squad? The other counties aren't going to leave off training just because we were in lockdown, are they?

David Dooley.

There's some that fear he'll be lost to rugby.

Last time Portlaoise played them in a final, they were roughed out of it!
But, I agree, Harps should win it.

Two average teams joining up won't necessarily produce anything above average unless there are 'big' (good county-standard) players on each side. And so it has proved.
However, they may stick at it since they both have barely anything coming through underage. In fact, even as an amalgamation, they'll be hard pressed to be where they are in 10 years time, so little have they coming on.

There seems to be a sizeable minority in society screeching about what everyone else should be and shouldn't be doing

Yup. But 'tis always the way.

I'm actually told the GAA has just said there'll be no schools' matches until after Christmas, at least.

If there can be matches between clubs, then surely there can be matches between schools, since virtually all schools' players will be club players, also?

Sporting activity is a big part of life in many schools and, I would say, is an important part of a child's development.

Probably being a dual club will be a big hinderance in that regard. It's not so bad in a short year like this, but imagine playing week in week out over a whole season, league and championship. Hard to do.

Dublin!!

Excuse the flippancy! Obviously it's the best draw we could've got, and if the lads have been keeping in shape, and if a few of the absentees come back, then there's no reason not to be hopeful. Is it right to assume that the first drawn team is at home?
