Podge, I'm glad you asked too, very informative.

When you join Club Aontroma, they tell you the relationship and exact arrangements.

Sean Kelly does an absolutely sterling job.

Bronagh didn't have the vision when she got position over JH, nevertheless outstanding over the past year.

Regarding TR, 3 strikes you're out is my opinion, but I haven't seen the texts...
He knows, and the rest know; so we'll soon see if the board discharge their responsibilities properly.

BS, your summary has a feelgood factor, you and Sean should put a monthly update on the Antrim website along these lines for all antrim gaels.
Got it right Podge......BS seems to have insight into our affairs but does ignore the fact that neither Sean or Bronagh were part of the Visionarys, and both excelled in their respective posts with the former the best PRO for as long as I can remember.
I do wonder if they had not proved so proficient in those positions would TR have been suggesting their removal in that txt and looked to head hunting to replace?

I always thought it was great when Armagh won the All-Ireland, it did so much for weaker counties at the time because everyone thought, well if a piss-poor team like Armagh can win it anyone can. There was talk of three in a row (the only time they do three in a row up there is when repeating the leaving cert) and there were Armagh men criss-crossing our little island in helicopters as demand for their managerial skills grew. Others became mercenaries and joined Dublin, Kildare and other clubs to generously donate freely the magic winning formula.  Sadly it all ended like a great big water balloon and as always, just when Laois were on the rise the rug was pulled from under us again.

Laois had a good wee team in the early-mid noughties. Gave us a couple of good games.

So if the UK issues a five pound note with the image of Stephen Fry would Asher's be ok to refuse it as they don't want to be handling money with gays on it, after all you could get the five pounds changed into coins or go away and get another five pounds?

It would appear so.

Not living in the UK, I stand to be corrected.

I know the O'Byrne cup is first and the first game is DIT at home on the 8th of Jan followed by Wicklow away on the 11th(wednesday) and then Meath at home the following Sunday the 25th and it will surely be a case of looking at players in these games...The League starts just three weeks later with a Saturday night home fixture against Louth (4th Feb)

Looking at our fixtures in the League they could have been easier ...Antrim and Sligo away are ones you'd like to have at home and would guarantee nearly four points whereas away they will be tricky games away with such travelling.

Armagh away is also a tough game especially after what happened last year although we have a great record against the Orchard county in recent meetings.

Louth Tipperary and Longford are all winnable games at home but still not easy.Then the last Sunday is the Biffo's in Tullamore.

I'd be hoping for something like this

Laois v Louth win 2 points(should beat Louth at home)
Armagh v Laois loss 0 points(I fear we could be up against it early in Creedon's reign here)
Laois v tipperary win 2 points(difficult but winnable Creedon should know them well)
Sligo v Laois draw 1 point(Will be a crucial game 4 games in must not loose)
Antrim v Laois win 2 points will again be hard but fancy two points here)
Laois v Longford win 2 points(we should beat them at home)
Offaly v Laois Win 2 points (I like Laois playing in tullamore and we will have no fear of Offaly)

11 points from 14 might seem optimistic but thats what i'd be aiming for.

The vital games will be game week 3 and 4 with Tipp at home and Sligo away if we can get 3/4 points here I think we will be right in the shake up for promotion.


Armagh and  Tipperary will be probably in the shake up but Longford have got nice home fixtures and could feature as well .


All to play for I for one can't wait!!!

Have to get off to a fast start here first 3 games very tough, I think I'd take survival at this point.


Surely we are better than that I know results haven't proved it over the last few years but we still are better than the Antrims,Louth's Offaly's and Sligo's of this world in my opinion!



after losing to Clare in 2016 and Antrim in 2015, and drop down to division 3 this year don't see where the form is that laois are any better than louth, sligo, and offaly i'd say they are all at the same level.

The cash-only shopkeeper isn't turning down credit cards because they aren't legal tender either.

If one business has the right to refuse service to a gay person (or Christian or Muslim or black person etc.), then any business has that right. So you could end up with a person with no place to go to get their cake or whatever it is they need.

Look, I'm not saying this vegan place is not over the top. But I don't see what legal rights are being violated.

If there were laws saying any business has to accept all legal tender of the jurisdiction, you might have a case.
I don't think Asher's refuse service to gay people. I'm sure a gay person could walk in and purchase a sweet chilli sausage roll in an Asher's bakery. They don't produce goods which carry pro-gay messages, regardless of whether the person requiring the service is gay or not.
