Let's call a spade a spade: the reality is any team that was relying on a 'Gaels' amalgamation to prop them up at senior in the first place is pathetic. Either accept you're going to struggle or accept a championship reformat which regrades you at intermediate, holding onto the senior tag just for the sake of it is watering down the SFC standard to conserve your pride, and in turn keeping county priorities below your own. Killeen looking to get into bed with Barrowhouse, given their history of picking off some of their best players, is embarrassing. They're a perfect example of a dying club, no youth coming through, virtually the same players every year and in the meanwhile they're getting that bit older. Themselves and Kilcruise need to have a serious look at themselves, they are doing a serious disservice to their players and to themselves. Ending this Gaels nonsense is only half the battle: the next step needs to be cutting down championship numbers to at least 12 as was proposed several years back before divisional teams are even considered.

Interesting article. If i'm reading it correctly and no rules have changed. "the Rules Advisory Committee in Croke Park have now said that all of those amalgamations should not have happened".
this is a serious shit storm. where does this leave our championship for the last number of years. We had illegal teams competing in the championship?

Illegal or not, no one objected, so therefore irrelevant.

What it means is the door is now wide open for Area Teams. This is a good thing for Laois Football/GAA.

Killeen, Ballyfin and Crettyard will be hit by this big time.
How Barrowhouse had agreed to prop up Killeen is beyond me. Thank f**k it's knocked on the head.

Too late for this year though. Pity. If you relegated 4 teams out of senior and entered 3 area teams in their place along with whoever wins the IFC you'd have the makings of a decent senior championship.

Agree 100% 16 Senior club teams in Laois is way too many considering Kerry has something like 8.
