Hopefully he will can regain his pace of old. Crucial if he is to re-establish himself in Laois starting team after a few years away. Good addition all the same. If Timmons can be right by time championship comes around then the Laois full-back line will have some decent options along with Booth, O'Connor etc to choose from. All we need now is Cahir Healy to give it one more go with footballers as well.
It's great to see the players involved in a proper set-up this year. Furthermore, with age profile of our key players Quigley 31, Strong 31, Timmons 30, O'Loughlin 28, Begley 30, Kingston 26, Meaney 30ish I think there is a realisation that it's now or never for them to achieve something in their inter-county careers. The combination of hunger/determination and a proper set up will hopefully lead to an upturn in our fortunes for the year ahead-Promotion to Division 2, Leinster final appearance and reaching the 1/4 final of All-Ireland series should be realistic targets for the coming year.
