Good win for B/K last night albeit a little fortuitous with the goal near the end.

Any of you lads in O'Moore Park and how was it. Must have been like a ghost town with only 200 there in total.

Reading Hungry Hill at the moment. Some great stuff in it. You can hear Pat's regret with regard to the Laois hurlers in that period 80-85. It woudn't have taken much more to have a title winning team.

Anyone want to have a go at the Laois 'Mount Rushmore' which Off the Ball are doing for every county.

Pat Critchley, Ann Keenan Buckley, Tony Byrne - footballer played for Ireland and had a career at Millwall and Southampton, TJ Doheny.

Fantastic achievement by Cahir Healy over the weekend. What an example this man is to the GAA and the community as a whole.

Sit down, relax and watch this classic. A cracking game of football as Micko would say.

1 - Best memory supporting the footballers - National league run and win in the final in 1986

2 - Favourite match - Beating the Dubs in Croke Park in 2003. It will be many's a year before it happens again. Fairly small Laois crowd in Croke Park that day but what a buzz leaving the ground. Laois beating Meath in Navan in 1992. Reigning Leinster champions and All Ireland finalists in 1991. What a day that was. Just shows you 11 years between decent championship wins. They don't come around too often.

3 - Favourite player pre 2000, post 2000 (for the older lads) Curly Prendergast, Post 2000 Wooly. Always performed well on the big days and I liked his attitude. Honourable mention to Ross who also shone on the big stage.

4 - Best score/favourite - It's not senior but i'm going with a goal scored by Beano in a minor game in Tullamore when he chipped the goalkeeper. Coolness personified.

5 - Best individual display in a match - Ross against Meath in Navan in 2006.  Ian Fitz in Leinster final 03 abd/or replay against Offaly.

6 - Match with best atmosphere - Laois v Tyrone in the pissings of rain in Portlaoise.

7 - Most impressive victory - Laois v Kildare in 05. An almost flawless performance and an exhibition of scoring.

8 - Favourite county ground - I like Carrick on Shannon, Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada

9- Most disappointing memory ( you can rank them) - Both been mentioned I think. Losing to Dublin in 2005 was so disappointing. Took me days to recover. We had our chances which made it even harder to take. One of the best 35 mnutes of football from Laois because we were very poor in the first half. After beating Meath in 1992 to go out and be beaten by Louth the next day was sickening. Again kicked some bad wides near the end so we had our chances. It was a f**king disaster though and after a serious high we were turned upside down. After a brilliant performance against Dublin in 1999 we let it slip in the last few minutes. I remember a brilliant point from Hughie out on the sideline. We knew leaving Croke Park that day that our chance was lost and Dublin beat us handy enough the next day. 

10 - Worst refereeing decision against us - V Dublin in 2005 both the free and the 45 were dubious enough. You'd think that if it was any other teams in Croke Park we would have gotten the benefit of the doubt on one of those decisions. The game against the Dubs in 1999 with the Robertson pick up lends itself to another bad luck story. The Battle of Aughrim has been done to death but it still hurts to talk about it so I will just say Carthage Buckley

1 - Best memory supporting the hurlers - Beating KK in the league quarter final in 1996 in Thurles

2 - Favourite match - The game above or last year against Dublin

3 - Favourite player pre 2000, post 2000 (for the older lads) - PJ Cuddy. As a younglad I just thought there was no-one else scoring goals for Laois. Willie Hyland post 2000.

4 - Best score/favourite - Tommy Fitz's goal against Galway in 2013

5 - Best individual display in a match - Willie Hyland against Offaly in that historic victory under Cheddar

6 - Match with best atmosphere - Game against Galway when Fitz scored his goal. Dublin last year was great and a special mention for the Laois v Clare league quarter final during Cheddars time. Reddins goal nearly lifted the roof off the stand.

7 - Most impressive victory - Any time you beat the Cats in a competitive game has to be impressive so the league in 96. I was also impressed the way the dug out victory against Kerry in the relegation decider after extra time in the 2017 playoff

8 - Favourite county ground - Outside of O'Moore I like the ground in Tullamore

9- Most disappointing memory ( you can rank them) 1998 Leinster semi final against KK. A late goal from Ken O'Shea who came on which beat us. We were brilliant that day and I remember Tony Dunne from the Harps having a great game. Another game against KK in Carlow in 1995 when they beat us by 2 points. Laois had all the momentum when the final whistle went. Leinster final 85. Laois never turned up that day and Offaly goals steamrolled them.

10 - Worst refereeing decision against us - I can't remember too many in the grand scheme of things but the ghost goal against Offaly in the 80's. The game against KK in 1995 the ball was still in play and Laois were attacking the KK goal when the ref blew full time.

With the lack of games to be discussing I thought we could delve into the past and talk about games in times past.

1 - Best memory supporting the footballers
2 - Favourite match
3 - Favourite player pre 2000, post 2000 (for the older lads)
4 - Best score/favourite
5 - Best individual display in a match
6 - Match with best atmosphere

If more than 1 in a category then list 1,2,3 in order of preference.

If you have anything to add to it fire away

Just reading a newspaper report thrown up by Jack McDonald from 1951, Laois v KK in leinster hurling. When did we stop using the word 'Laoighas'? Why the change does anybody know?
