Jack Nolan is very enthusiastic about the appointment anyway. As he says an 8 time AI winner with a modern outlook on the game and with probable aspirations to manage the KK seniors in the future. If the Laois hurlers can't buy into that? If his managerial ability comes close to his ability as a player then he could be a great match for Laois. Worked in Portlaoise for a long time so would have an insight to the Laois psyche and has to be well aware of the Laois hurling scene.

What has Delaney been offered?

It would be good to see someone like Delaney in there with Eddie Brennan.

Zane would hardly come back in would he?

Is he still hurling with his club? Personally would have preferred a Laois man. Was anyone else willing to take the job?

They might go with the tried and tested in JAck O'Connor. He did manage a lot of those young lads to minor All Irelands. He would be the right man for a year or two. Surely Kerry are planning to stop Dublins 5 in a row.

There was a drive at the time from certain players to have a parish senior team and lads who would have previously played for Ballylinan went on to play with Arles Kileen?St Michaels. The underage team was St Michaels and they were very strong in the mid to late 80's and the jersey's they wore are the same as the ones Kileen use now.
Arles were always maroon.

Exciting start to senior championship by all accounts. Good win for Kilcruise.

3 Conroy brothers to the fore according to LaoisToday.

Have Ballypickas any chance of upsetting the bigger clubs?

Young Diarmuid Whelan from Ballyroan looks a good prospect. Certainly hand a hand in winning the 1B title.

Another league for O'Dempseys. About time they transferred their league form to championship. Flattered to deceive a lot over the years.

The team would get a pass with merit for the season.

There were a few things particularly in attack that needs to be worked on like shot selection, interplay and passing. It was a bit deja vu in Navan last week after the Leinster final.

The dejection on Sugrue's face as he was crouched on the sideline at the final whistle told it's own story. He obviously thought we'd do a lot better.

Based on how this year went there's no reason why we cannot be in a another league final come April. Sugrue needs to get the backing of the CB as we don't want another Cheddar scenario.

Our shooting was a big problem again. Haven't seen the stats so don't have the wide count but we also hit plenty of ball into goalies hands. Farrell did it on a couple of occasions. For me that has been the biggest issue.

I thought we weren't that bad defensively against a rampant Monaghan team who pressed very high and the movement and interplay of the forwards was far better than us. They have been together fro a few years now so they have done these drills over and over.

We had some great turnover ball in the second half and we matched them physically in what was a fairly hard hitting encounter at times. Donie leaving to tacklers on the ground after one attack in the second half.

I would agree that some of the ball into the forwards wasn't great and something they need to work on. At one point late in second half Donie was calling for the ball and it was kicked towards him but just as the pass ws made Donie changed the direction of his run and the defender picked up the ball and cleared easily.

Plenty to work on but the future looks so much brighter than it did 12 months ago.

Serious beating alright. How’d the other game go?
