Celtic Challenge finals being shown live

Laois on later this afternoon

Laois beat Antrim in their final - was it the Division 4 final? Out of five divisions? With Derry winning the one above us?!

Think so a win is a win but the standard was very poor compare to the division 2 final i saw!

Any news on the selecting of a new manager--or on implementing any long-term plans for hurling in Laois?

How strong was the Wexford team?

I see that they beat Waterford in the final. We have seen results like this before only to find out later that Laois were playing against B teams.

Nonetheless, they are great results.

If I'm not mistaken, it was the Under 15 A shield final which is a good achievement but should be treated with caution.  One way or another, it is one of the best crop of players in a while. If every Laois team was as good as this, we would be on our way.

Laois U14s also very competitive in Foristal. Beat Limerick, narrowly beaten by Wexford and then well beaten by Clare I think in final game.

Encouraging all the same.

Hammered by Cork, but that is liable to happen against a side like Cork in the final game of a long day. A numbers game comes into play.

U14B's beaten in Shield Final by Carlows first side also. Not a bad showing there either, Carlow had a full panel, as opposed to our second string.

Great credit to u15 A hurlers winning the shield in Cashel, in the A beating the likes of Wexford and Waterford,the mentors over them have an extremely tight group and have taken ownership of that group and have driven on with them

The U14' A team missed a penalty and 5/6 very scorable chances in a game they could and should have won,still a massive improvement on the hockeying they received from the same Wexford team about 6 weeks back.

A last minute goal saw them over the line against Limerick and it was a well deserved win

Cork were the favorites to win it out and so it was proved,all huge young lads and depth in the panel


the Laois Team that took place in the C competition (they didnt qualify for the Forristal B,Westmeath won the qualifying competition in the CoE 2 saturdays ago),played and bet the likes of Down Derry and were well beaten by Meath,they lost to a well drilled Carlow team in the shield C final,easy to be critical,but if we had played our keeper in the goals, we would have been closer.

From looking at these games

2 things stand out

Firstly we don't have the support teams that nearly every other team we face has.

We are lacking in both fitness and athletic development.

How would you suggest addressing the athletic development issue ?

We still have absolutely no co ordinated plan/ strategy or structures in place for our underage set up, its putting different people in each year and turn up Saturday morning to training, no s&c programme coaching pathway.
The set up cork/ limerick/ Tipp/ Kilkenny have or had is what we should be copying, our GDAs are doing good work but are over stretched, too much left to them.
Need to address this to make any real progress.
