I know Larry Wall in Arles used go into the primary school every Friday on his own time to get the kids playing football (both boys and girls) Don't know if he still does it but he did for years and most of those who played would have ended up with the Arles club. He did it for the love of the game and also to get future club players.

Posted it here before but O'Dempseys have some great stuff on their website about that league win with newspaper cuttings etc from the quarter and semi final wins.
That win also shows you what we were capable of when we actually put our minds to it. A team winning a national league title from such a lowly position would be unthinkable nowadays. We had the talent but we didn't have the application as a team on a regular basis. Some cracking players on that team.

Definately need some sort of defensive plan and will have to play a sweeper. We're limited with quality backs though.

Maybe Slieve Margy will provide a hurler or two from the junior grade in a few years iff they stay going. Already providing hurlers to underage panels.

Does Kelly watch the games from the stand or why wasn't he on the line on Saturday?

Good performance from Laois. Very impressed with Cian Taylor when he came on. Plays with alot of confidence and his direct running is great to see. Bar the first few minutes Laois were always the better team. If more of the lads were prepared to do what Taylor does we would score more goals. That was the only disappointment from the game. It would have been a massive boost to hit another couple of goals.
Ross King got on a lot of ball when he moved out around the middle and scored a couple of lovely points. Although he picked up a yellow for it, the clash of the two captains was a bit of a marker for Roddy.  Cha, after missing his first one or two efforts had one of those evenings when everything after went over the bar. His effort from under the stand in the first half was probably the best of the lot. Dunphy was a handfull but was getting plenty of it from the corner back and looked like losing it on a couple of occasions. Don't think he got enough from the ref.
Offaly really battled and put it up to us and deserve some credit for staying in the game. If it was ourselves that had two lads sent off i'm not so sure we would have been as close as 6 points and  their captain led by example.
I know Offaly are not great at the moment but they are always capable of getting a result when least expected. They took a point off Limerick last year which kept Limerick down so I would not rule them out. If we are in a relegation playoff and had a choice I would nearly rather Kerry. Anyhow plenty of hurling to be done between now and then so lets enjoy the win and not begrudge the players a few jars 2 weeks before they're out again.

Rowland does have the ability to knock over a free which could be the difference.

I assume they worked on it in training but we need to start scoring goals. We're probably going to concede so without stating the obvious we have to outscore them. We can't rely on points alone. A few bob on Foyle to grab one tomorrow night though I doubt the odds would be great.

That's not a bad performance at all baring in mind that both of these teams will provide most of these lads to the respective county panels.
