I heard today that Palmer is in line for the Coaching job with Laois GAA

Presume to replace Kieran Muldooley. I’m sure he will do a small bit more than him by turning up for a start so laois GAA will be off to a decent start.

Interesting that everyone is taking a alan doheny’s word as gospel. I wouldn’t be so sure no of that.

Fair play LOVEGAA, I thought I was the only one who witnessed the Camross Mentor v Borris/Kilcotton. Shocking carry on and no punishment AGAIN. The Shane Dollard incident was a disgrace and he was a very lucky man and seemingly was told by the play to get on with it.
Rumour has it that the ref in question is employed by a Camross players wife's company and does all challenge games for the club.

Also the refs as a whole are afraid to make any decisions throughout the county. The treatment of Aaron Bergin and Cahir Healy in Snr A semi final was shocking and yet the in charge of that game is being a "keyboard warrior" abusing other refs the whole time. I as a mad Laois GAA person am I completely disillousioned with the place. All they will care about is how much they will make from the final and brush this incident under the carpets. Why would you bother promoting GAA within the county.

It’s disgraceful the comments by other hurling referees towards John O’Brien on Facebook.

I would never advocate a weakening of Portlaoise but it needs two clubs to make sure that all possible players are playing they have a population of 30k or thereabouts but only one club. I would suggest that even with one team at every level jnrC to senior that's only 80 to 90 players being catered for  that's less than .33% of the population ......even 1%of total population playing would make huge strides towards a new club at the northern end of towns. Allow for half males and say half under 40 years there are still huge numbers available. It's not up to Portlaoise to come back to the others but for other large clubs to step up a bit. Stradbally did so why can't Port Joseph's mountmellick step up too. To say we have too many clubs I'd have to disagree with. People who identify strongly with locality will go that extra bit to tog out for a local  first team but may not for an amalgamations second team. Perhaps the competition structures are wrong as I feel we have too many senior team's and not enough intermediate . Maybe 3 levels of 12 teams split in two groups would work for snr to jnr and similar smaller  groups at lower grades. Attach your placing in championship to your league status without exception eg div 1 senior div 2 intermediate and so on. Leagues would mean something and less clubs would give walkovers if relegation meant a drop in status  matches played on a set day  for a set grade every week or fortnight. We'd have a defined season and club players would be improved by playing meaningful matches instead of practice matches all over the place

Purely from a hurling viewpoint we have approached and met the county board with a proposal to have 2 national schools in the town plus portlaoise college designated as schools that we will be able to access for future  players


We also have a proposal in that we as a club will be able to access Portlaoise college sporting facilities for the use and benefit of the clonad club.

What the f**k has Clonad got to do with a senior Football thread

Well done to Courtwood. Fine wam as will beat 6/7 of the current teams in my opinion. However, they should have been down to 14 men after 10 minutes but well deserving win.

Express article waste of time. From what I know only players from 22 years of age to 29 are going to be invited to attend these games. Anyone over 30 not invited at all.

Well it seems Kieran has jumped ship. Not sure much of a loss and hopefully they bring in an active player to the coaching set up.
Would you not prefer they being in a coach?

If we got another like Hally we’d be laughing

In active I mean an active coach, unlike the person who has vacated recent position

Clonadmad, you seem to know a fierce amount about the goings on and emails within Laois GAA walls. You're hardly a GDA working for our county are you?

More encouraging news on Laois GAA twitter.

The Laois U15 squad who played Tipp. Game 1 Tipp 3-10 Laois 1-09. Game 2 Laois 3-16 Tipp 4-11. Thanks @TipperaryGAA

Really? From what I can see they lost the first game and then barely won the second. Hardly anything to dream of winning all irelands

Saw this on the Laois GAA twitter. Encouraging.

Well done to our U14 hurlers who had a good win over Limerick today and to our U15hurlers who had two great games with Waterford. #goodwork

Very encouraging is right. Who's involved with all them squads?
