Bizarre response Laoisabu. Almost like you welcome that. Portlaoise are of Laois and with your username I'm sure that's not lost on you. Granted the initial post was nonsensical, but seriously.....

Great appointment and always good to have clubs coming back to strength. A terrible pity that they destroyed a good relationship with Barrowhouse over one player. An even greater pity that a small club could be treated this way.

Maybe they should start charging all their mates for admission and car parking. That would yield a nice few quid

But what do you want? What would you like/expect to happen?

He's a Kerryman first and foremost. That carries a lot of weight. As for other reasons, they may be plentiful or few. Who knows? We were told nothing, just to keep the money flowing and trust that everything is being done correctly. That isn't enough though. This episode has left a very sour taste in the mouth of a lot of people, and I include myself in that. The only thing I blame Sugrue for is not being honest with supporters. That showed a lack of respect. But maybe if we knew the full story, I could be in a position to withdraw that remark. I pay a lot of money to Laois GAA and devote a lot of my free time as well. It's not good enough to be treated this way

A talent academy for Kerry? What are you even talking about? The man lived in Portlaoise and knew plenty about local football already. Enough to sort the wheat from the chaff which a lot of previous coaches had a hard time doing. What is your net point exactly? That you object to people wishing him well? That you think we're an academy for Kerry? I'm a little lost in the blurb

Definitely less work strain but I'm sure the truth will come out some day and it won't paint a pretty picture for our county board.

Quirke ratified tonight , still no word on back room team .
f**k him, you read his previous post.

Enjoy the trip to watch Kerry U20ís Don,  It never changes in Laois.  New man we all fawn over him, now he f**ks us and gives us two fingers we wish him well.  Could you imagine Sugrue doing it the other way what Kerry would think of him.  Wishing him well what sort of mentality is that.  No doubt Sugrue did a good job but this is self serving.  Quirke is nothing more than a club manager moving up the ladder before he takes his next job promotion with Kerry under 15ís.

Why would we not wish him well? The man gave good service and clearly had a positive impact on Laois. None of us know what happened in the finish, but I'm pretty certain about the conclusion I would draw from Sugrue departing. And if I'm right, that would only make him more honourable in my opinion. That is why I wish him well, and until I hear otherwise, I can only assume that it's another own goal for Laois GAA and its officers.

A remarkable outburst

Did nobody on the CB think about asking him to train our U20's? I'm just adding two and two here, but obviously the Under 20 schedule won't affect his family and work commitments as much? Give me a break. Good luck to him of course, but what a kick in the hole for Laois.

god forbid they would move it out of OMP

I recently asked a couny board official why they couldnt move games around the county to grounds capable of holding games.

I was told "they didnt have the ticketing infrastructure"


More like the boys out in the country won't let you in for free  ;D Those boys in Cretty are like patrol on the Mexican border

There's an undercurrent to your posts that doesn't sit well with me. It assumes that everything a ref does is sacrosanct. That isn't right either.

We're talking about yesterday's game and I have yet to see any abuse of Mick Tarpey on here. If there is, point it out to me, or else stop the waffling

I and many others have taken enough of your bile not to worry about what you call us.

Forced. Fines. Punishments. Seriously? What if nobody has the time or inclination to be a referee? What then?

For what it's worth, abuse these days is criticism. He has been criticised, not abused. We all get that in our daily working lives. Let's not get too soft centred here

What are the solutions? Every game we now have referees been abused
Put the focus on the clubs. Fine teams without mercy for abuse of referees. Punish clubs for not providing referees.

This is a voluntary organisation. Get a grip with your fines and punishments. Clown

We have 16 senior teams in laois and only 6 Ref that passed the fitness test to take control of all these games.2 of these Refs are port men. At the weekend one of these Refs was way out of his depth some of his decisions where so bad that you wonder did he have money on the game(which I doubt he had) we also have a celebrity Ref which he thinks the game is all about him. I know itís a thankless job.but for players to spend 3 nights a week training giving there time for club and county.To play the game they love itís hard to take for them.for me the Ref shouldnít be notice but when you walk out of O Moore Park the talk is all about the Ref.Is this only my opinion or what do ye guys think

Thankfully we're talking about the minority of matches, and in fairness to Tarpey, conditions were bad, there was a lot at stake and it was tetchy. Some decisions were strange alright, particularly his interpretation of the tackle. This seemed to infuriate Rigney, and I believe rightly so.

As for the overall need for referees, who would want to do it? It's a couple of hours at least gone from your evening or day, and for what? 40 euro? I stand corrected on that. Who can commit to that sort of time for that sort of pittance if you have work commitments and family to worry about? Maybe if clubs supplemented the fee with an extra payment, it moght be worth some people's time and at least be more attractive as a proposition. I saw some players parking away from the ground yesterday while the usual hangers on got the VIP treatment. There's extra money to be had there for referees if everyone was treated the same. If the players can't park in the new car park, for whatever reason, then nobody should be let into it.

Must have been an off day for him so  8) It's never justifiable for a coach to go on to the field of play and point the finger, but it was some mess at times.
Have you seen much of him? Any player who's played under him would speak highly of him. Anyone can have an off day, but he's much better than the vast majority of what we currently have. More referees coming into the game after finishing playing are to be commended, not chipped at online.

I've seen plenty of him. He had a bad day, and we all have them. Nobody's chipping, and we'd all rather be talking about the football, but that was interrupted by his bad day and decision making. We got the right result in the end, and that's all that really matters. Port's day will come if they stick together
