Folks, firstly apologies in advance for spamming the board if that's what this is. I hope its O.K. to do this.
I know loads of you have probably seen this on social media or possibly yesterday's Sunday Indo. 
I just said I'd give it a little mention here in case anyone missed it.
Niall Donoher gave a lot a pleasure to all of us watching Laois teams for 16 years. If you can at all, maybe you'd consider repaying him for all the sacrifices he made down the years to represent his county. Every little will help to give Niall's little lad, Dan, the best possible chance at life. 
Just click on the link below.

P.S. I'm sure what I wrote above about Niall equally applies to Dan's mam, Aisling! I'm just no expert on the ladies football!

I dont  disagree with  everything you say. I think the divisional are good. It's just I'd like to see no other fixtures clash with them and u20's get a fair crack at it. That's all. We can disagree on some things and agree on other things.  We're both  debating in the interest of laois football.
Same here. I like the idea of the divisional thing but it might worth confining it to lads overage for next year's under 20 team. The idea of young lads running from one game to another as they did last Saturday in late October shouldn't enter the equation.

Courtwood Ballylinan second half was fantastic.
No, it wasn't... :(
A bit of naivety on our part maybe. We really should have tried to tie up Gary Walsh a bit better than we did. But then again, we missed plenty at the other end too.
Not a bad draw for Ballylinan in the quarter final too. They'll know Killeshin well and it looks like another 50-50 game.

HU, I know there was a ruling/clarification made on this in the past few years. It generally happens more in league than championship. Anyone have a copy of the byelaws?
I "think" that the relegation supercedes the promotion, and Graigue will be all set to win the Junior C next year.
Think you're right. They could conceivably win the junior B and junior C next year if they are the teams that they affiliate.

Broke no rules but it's the spirit of this that's annoying everyone.
As someone asked me last night, what happens next year? Their "second" team pulled out of Junior A and should be relegated to Junior B. But this "third" team should also be going up to Junior B!

Who is Cotter? Where has he come from or what club is he from, Excuse my ignorance but what is his CV like or how did he manage to get involved with Sugrue this year?
Sean Cotter of Portlaoise club. Has been with Maynooth University Sigerson teams. Good coach apparently.

GAA Discussion / Re: Gaa club Championship ticket prices

About €10 for a senior championship double header in Laois. Maybe €8 for a single game. Intermediate or junior would be a little cheaper.
My own club charges €5 for home senior league games but we're flexible with a car with 2 or 3 in it. Free into our second team games.

John O Connell played for courtwood’s team in a recent div 1B league match a few weeks back v Mountmellick. He’s definitely 50 at least. Played the 91 Leinster senior football final  so that’s 28 years ago
He didn't. That was his younger brother Eamonn who's only 46! 😀

I really wasn't expecting that. Big blow. Next appointment is vital. Let's hope we do as well as we did when appointing John.

Is Paudie Maher ok lads? He took an awful clatter I’d say, the poor owl divil.


I'd imagine he'll be out for the final !
Unlikely he'll ever hurl again  I'd say. Career ending injury if I ever saw one.

Ah, no complaints from us in Courtwood. The rule is you play all league games without county players unless they are made available at the discretion of the county team manager(s).

Would've been nice to have more notice of the game because a couple of other lads missed the final too but at the end of the day  we'd swap every league result this year for a one point win over Arles in the championship!🙂
Yer flying it all told hesh, small thing
You didn't see us Saturday night. Wouldn't be described as "flying it"! Yerra ;)
