Portlaoise were far the better team in the second half but looked very heavy legged in the first half. In that first half Ballylinan really took the game to them. Couple of defensive mix ups allowed Portlaoise in for scores particularly the collision between the two Ballylinan backs that resulted in the goal. Flynn should really have called back play prior to Portlaoises second goal as he had done so previously when he obstructed the play. The second goal killed of the game really. Cahillane was in great form and his marker had a torrid time. Ballylinan couldn't cope with Portlaoises running game in the second half and they did looked out on their feet. Ball runners had little support and more often than not Gary Walsh was the only option. The final score is a little harsh on Ballylinan considering the effort they put in but Portlaoise were the dominant team and sitting in the stands there was an air of evitability about things 10  mins into the second half. Dillon has a right burst of speed in him when he gets the ball. Portlaoise bench was fairly strong. It is a microcosym of Dublin and the rest of Leinster. Great atmosphere in the first half and the whole of Ballylinan must have been in O'Moore Park.

1987 was a disaster of a day for BAllylynan against Portlaoise.

I would assume Portlaoise were hot favourites that day. They had some serious footballers at the time. The 21 point defeat was a tough pill to swallow.

What would be great to see is Laois making some ground at U21 level. We've had decent enough minors over the past 4 or 5 years but  they have made no impression whatsoever at the higher grade. I understand it's not the be all but it's very important for step up to senior.

The younger grades like the U13's etc can be argued as being more important for the county but in saying that u6's right up are all important if we are going to have a more competitive senior county team in the future. I still think we need to look at the transition from minor to u21.

Great to hear that and good spread of clubs alright.

A decent team there though and should look to build on this years achievement. It will only be of benefit to Laois to have Port challenging for county titles.

For Laois, Carlow, Westmeath etc the format regarding the championship relegation/promotion is basically the same is it not?

Once there is promotion between the different tiers that is the main thing for so called weaker teams to aspire to. If they are not in a position to compete to get into the higher tier then it is a waste of time.
The football championship could learn from the tiered system in hurling.

I see where Ross Munnelly will be top scorer in championship this year. Cormac Murphy of Port is top scorer from play. How many times has Ross been top scorer? A few times at least. Anyone got the stats?

Congrats to Ballylynan on getting to the county final for the first time in 30 years. They play the same opposition as they did then in what was a tough day for the village. This time round they should give a much better account of themselves. They've been playing well this year and deserve their place. Best of luck to them in the final!

Antrim are testament to that.

Last Leinster won by a Laois team was Camross in 1996.

That's a very decent draw with the Dublin, KK and Wex winners on the other side. LAois clubs have really not made any impression on the club championship in recent years. Hopefully Camross get back training and give it a go. Some incentive with that draw in fairness.

Some great long distance point scoring in the game.

Will Camross give Leinster a go? They have enough quality to do so.

Definately a couple of players on that team that would boost the county team if they gave the committment.

Hyland aside, the CB forwards only scored 1-01 between them and that's not going to win you a title.
