Laois / Re: Allianz Football League 2017 - Division 3

Tullamore has never been a happy hunting ground for any Laois team and many's a time we left after a good beating. Anyone who thinks we will beat Offaly handy enough on their home patch on Sunday are in for a shock.

Will the Div 1 football league games be brought forward on Saturday evening? A bit crazy having a full round of league games, football or not, throwing in 30 mins before a big relegation playoff.

It annoys me when that happens. The costs are reduced significantly having both games on at the same venue anyhow. If the reduced priced tickets are available beforehand it might not be too bad. It would normally be 15 on the day anyhow so if you arrive with a Laois jersey you should only have to pay 15.
Sure any 'dual' Laois supporters will already have paid 15 on Saturday evening so that's a combined 35 payout for the two games at that rate!

Laois V Kerry 7pm next Saturday evening in O'Moore Park.

Spread the word and get people to attend. Very important game and they deserve the support.

That's a bit of a trimming for Killeen!

Was anyone down in Wexford yesterday to see our senior hurlers put up that brave display? As someone else mentioned it's good to see us raise a couple of green flags. No mean feat to run Wexford so close irrespective of their position in the table.
Cha back at centreback was a bold move and as Eamon Kelly said there was no one breaking through the middle as easily as against Limerick

Team for Sunday


1. Eoin Fleming (Borris-in-Ossory-Kilcotton)
2. Lee Cleere (Clough Ballacolla)
3. Leigh Bergin (Shanahoe)
4. Dwane Palmer (Camross)
5. Cahir Healy (Portlaoise)
6. Ryan Mullaney (Castletown)
7. Sean Downey (Ballinakill)
8. Ross King (Rathdowney Errill)
9. Patrick Purcell (Rathdowney Errill)
10. Cian Taylor (Portlaoise)
11. Charles Dwyer (Ballinakill)
12. Ben Conroy (Slieve Bloom)
13. Willie Dunphy (Clough Ballacolla)
14. Neil Foyle (Borris-in-Ossory-Kilcotton)
15. Aaron Dunphy (Borris-in-Ossory-Kilcotton)

At the end of the day we have our limitations but the lads will still give it everything. There are some really good, young hurlers there and every game gives them more experience. They might as well go for it tomorrow and who knows. Maybe Wexfords second string are not so hot (that's if Fitzy rests lads)

Allianz HL 1B
Wexford    4    4    0    0    25    8
Galway    4    3    0    1    63    6
Limerick    4    3    0    1    52    6
Kerry    4    1    0    3    -46    2
Laois    4    1    0    3    -53    2
Offaly    4    0    0    4    -41    0

If we're being honest here, the likelihood is that we lose to Wexford meaning it's either Offaly or Kerry in the play off. A point is enough to keep Kerry clear but the only way Offaly can avoid the play off is by beating Kerry and if they do that it will be Laois v Kerry as Offaly have the best scoring difference. Would a Laois v Kerry decider be in Portlaoise seeing as the league game was in Kerry.

I wouldn't be risking lads this weekend if they are not 100% fit. Can't see Wexford taking their foot off the pedal with Davy at the helm so we need everyone fit for what will be a relegation game against Kerry or Offaly.

Can we stop with the Darren Strong corner back experiment. To be honest I never saw him more as a half forward but successive managers have put him in the half back line but corner back. There has to be a better 'corner' back than Darren Strong in the county. Play Strong further up field.

Think I remember Monaghan beating us in a quarter or semi final in Croke Park aswell around that time.

Couple of interesting results from the schools competitions during March.

St Fergals were beaten by St Fintans from Sutton in Dublin (not a particularly big school) in the Juv C semi final. What's happening with Fergals as they seem to be in trouble with the hurling in the school. They really need to have a look at this.

Laois Schools lost by 2 points to Good Counsel in Juv H 'A' league semi final. They have performed reasonably well in this competition. Are Mountrath CS involved in this as I haven't seen them mentioned anywhere?

On another note the likes of Naas CBS is winning the SH B final against Colaiste Eoin which is a big result for a Kildare school and is good for hurling.

As has been stated many times we need to start a primary level which feeds into secondary schools and these competitions.

When Emerson was on form there was no stopping him. Just didn't happen enough. Back in the nineties we regularly finisd in the top half of Div 1. In fact I think we topped it one year but lost in the play offs. Serious team that never really clicked come championship time bar Meath in Navan.
