Good to see 23 different u12 teams entered in the 2017 go games.

A good few clubs putting in 2 teams.

Raheen Parish Gaels not entering Division 1? Or is that a mistake on the website?

There wasn't a willingness to have a 9 team Division 1 and then a 6 team Division 2,which is understandable.

Have they only entered 1 team?

Numbers weren't there to justify entering 2 teams

I'm genuinely surprised, I'd have thought they'd easily have had the numbers.

I see a good initiative being set up by Ballacollas Shane Maher & other Laois primary schools starting a Laois Cumann na mBunscoil team to improve our standards we done & best of luck.

Can anyone tell me who is managing & coaching our U12/14/15/16 Laois teams?

Details below on Laois Today,which is a fantastic resource on Twitter for all laois news

The initiative was set up by 2 Tipp teachers,I also heard that a number of schools refused to participate as the principals aren't that bothered about Gaelic games.

The hurling team is due to be announced shortly

It's great to hear some positive news o this front and well done to all those involved. Hopefully over time everyone will come on board from the schools around the county. Have to get the kids involved from as young an age as possible and make sure they enjoy it and want to stay.
Great news.

This is brilliant and should be encouraged at club level. In areas like Portlaoise in particular it could be revolutionary. Much of Waterford's success seems to come from promotion of GAA in the city and they have huge participation at schools levels.

If there are schools who are not involved in GAA promotion, they should be named and shamed. I'm sure not all the parents would be happy with disinterested principals.

Its a curious one all right,its not as if the principals concerned actually have to do anything,one of the alleged schools recently won a C na B Division 1 title.

If it's anyway successfull the remaining schools would be pressurised into participating. In fairness there would be plenty of schoolkids playing for clubs that would be going to different schools so nobody would want to be left out.
You wouldn't need to name and shame schools if a list of those participating was made public.

Great to have ideas coming from the Tipps of this world. Credit to the teachers, especially thosefrom outside Laois.
I'd go easy on the schools too; this seems to be year 1. Let's see how it goes next year....
