Was that an almost full strength Kilkenny side? Or did they rest a few? 1-19 is indeed a nice score to run up on them.

Hopefully we get a few players back from injury in time for championship. We'll probably need everyone if we're to scrape a win from somewhere and avoid the drop straight back to Joe McDonagh.

It felt like it was the young lads who were the ones really getting stuck in today. Sean O'Flynn was probably the best Laois player, and Robbie Pigott did well enough marking one of the best forwards in the county in Daniel Flynn.

Big games coming up against Fermanagh and Westmeath. We need to win at least one of them.

Hopefully we bring similar support to what we did last year or maybe more. The lads deserve it. Dublin will bring no crowd to it really.

Three wins from three this weekend for our county teams. Although Clare aren't the team they were a few years ago, going down there and grinding out a win takes guts.

It looks like we're safe from relegation which I would have taken your hand off at the start of the year. Still very much in the mix for promotion, and it would be nice if we were the ones to confine Kildare to relegation.

John Small always seems to be in the thick of it. Referees need to cop on and see what he is doing off the ball. Great player but gets away with a lot at the same time.

Dublin reeling them back in. These performance must be slightly worrying for the Dublin management team though. They are certainly coming back into the pack.

Dublin in the final now. They're after giving Meath a bit of a pasting in the other semi-final so they'll go into as comfortable favourites.

Evan O'Carroll showing glimpses of what he's capable of again. That result could nearly see Laois safe because Armagh and Roscommon are two of the toughest fixtures on paper

I wasn't at the match, but heard we struggled in the half forward line. I wonder is Gareth Dillon an option there when he returns?

I'd prefer to see Dillon at half-forward or half-back than at corner-back. He clearly shows his quality there for Portlaoise. Hopefully Hanrahan and Collins can solidify the corner-back positions as there own.

Healy will be in the team that finishes the league ....Mark my words

He may be 33/34 but he's still one of the best options we have ar corner-back considering the losses of Attride and Dillon this year. I wonder will Saunders be brought in as well to cover that position after U-20's finish campaign. He looks physically ready for senior inter-county football.

Fair difference in commitment between Ross Munnelly and Donie Kingston. Worlds apart.

I agree but at the end of the day whether these lads want to dedicate their time to playing for a small county like Laois is completely up to them. They put in a lot of effort and usually get very little reward. Donie Kingston doesn't deserve to be called out like that.

Just in from Stradbally   Great game of football serious credit to both sides for producing a game like that in December. Courtwood Emo marginally the better side and had better scoring forwards but port could have snuck it.   That Dunne chap at midfield from courtwood is a serious footballer best player on the field by far in my opinion

Dunne is a lovely footballer no doubt but my man of the match probably would have went to Alex Mohan at full-back for Portarlington. Had to mark Jack Owens and Alan Kinsella at different periods and seemed to come out on top of both.

Great game of football and I'd imagine a fair few on either side wi ll be putting their hands up for places on the Laois senior team.

Didn't know Gearoid Hanrahan was back in the mix. He was a player that impressed me a few years ago playing for Laois seniors but dropped completely off the radar after that.

The two Kingston brothers confirmed gone from Laois panel for upcoming season. I expected Donie to go but I was surprised that Paul isn't there either. For me, Donie gone from the panel means that Laois are in huge relegation trouble for the league. Not sure we have the scores up front to stay up. Evan O'Carroll will need to step up in a big way this season.

I see on the positive side that Niall Corbet and Garry Comerford are on the panel. Corbet could easily find himself starting as well because Laois desperately need a free taker. Comerford was a player who I was very impressed with when Stradbally won championship in 2016. I imagine he'll have no problems getting up to speed fitness wise due to his last few years playing soccer at a high level.
