Do other clubs get any say in these amalgamations?

Im not so sure about Laois but in 2004 Golden/Anacarthy and kilfeacle amalgamated in Tipperary and reached a county final only to be narrowly defeated by Toomevara and just about every team they beat along the way objected to them playing as a unit and they ceased to exist as a combo as they were dubbed. If this was a result of objections, I dont know but clubs can object with good reason from what iv been told over the years

100% agree.
Clubs will have been informed about these proposals on Tuesday. County Board Delegates should be mandated by their clubs to reject these proposals but I really doubt that will happen.

Did they reject any?

Clonaslee and Annanough is almost like a social experiment of sorts.

There is no rule in the book to stop amalgamations such as Clonaslee/ Annanough. It can be stopped at the discretion of the County Committee which includes the club delegates. Here's a unusual one from Kilkenny. The only amalgamated set up in Kilkenny that I can think of is Galmoy/Windgap (underage) who are at least 30 miles apart. Don't know whether it is still going.

I didn't see the correspondence or anything but I believe none were refused outright.

There was mention of some of these amalgamations being against the 'spirit of the rule' but that might only be hearsay.

Spink caters for the football side of ballinakill and knock parish and ballinakill caters for the hurling so it is only players from spink club
Preferably you would like to see a link between clubs weather that be underage amalgamations or parish neighbours but sometimes the senior club wont allow this, Joesphs and Barrowhouse being a prime example, so if the oppurtunity comes up elsewhere to play at the top grade you cant exactly blame a junior club for taking it
