Ye Id agree Ballyroanabu. Aaron Carroll seems to have filled out well too . Id be really looking foward to seeing how Ballyroan progress over the next 3-5 years .

Some great young footballers on that Ballroan  Abbey team. That young Scully chap(No 7) has some engine but was hindered and targeted last night by some very dark tactics. He didnt get the protection he deserved

Is he the same Martin Scilly who was a Laois under 21 around 4 years ago? Had a few runs with the seniors too?
He was a forward back then if it's the same guy.
I don't know about protection. He's a brave lad who went into a few tough tackles. He certainly got a couple of late clatters too but I think yellows were as much as was deserved? Maybe I'm wrong!!
One thing that struck me in the stand was that supporters of neither team seem to like their official name. It was all Come on Arles and Come on Ballyroan. Abbey and Kilcruise very redundant😁

Looks like Stradbally have sorted out their  problems  and are firmly  back on the horse.  Probably the only team in Laois who won't show too much respect to Portlaoise. Any opinions  on who else can raise a challenge this year

Port were by far the better team in the first half and if Strad had been playing Portlaoise they would have been out of it at half time playing like that. A lot of the Strad lads look a bit overweight but they staged a great comeback and deserved the win.
Winners are not those who never fail, but those who never quit!

Heath got over the line but were full value ...evan Keane was outstanding .

John Flynn was excellent in the middle!

Looks like an another have almost  pulled from the clonaslee  setup......  Only two or three played against Killen.  No Stapleton or Millers.  Concentration  all on junior  now.  Ballyfin will probably have just enough to stay up

Can't say I'm surprised.

They are too far apart for this to be a long term amalgamation . Maybe Annanough should look to Timahoe or Park Ratheniska or the Heath ? Would Clonaslee look to Kilcavan ? Or Ballyfin ? I assume Rosenallis isnt an option due to rivalry up there .

Love the sarcasm.  ::)
It's hardly possible to build anything if frustration, bitterness and a mood of helplessness prevail

Annanough, Timahoe and Park Ratheniska would have the makings of a fine senior set up. All could retain their own junior and intermediate teams and go together in the senior.

Any Annanough lads who wanted to hurl could go play hurling with the Carlow lads as well ...New Jerseys would be the order of the day ...

Carlow Tops maybe blue shorts and socks  :P
