Down away is not ideal but looking at the draw we should be there or there about come end of league for promotion. You would be hopeful that the team can kick on again next year.

Sligo away going to replace the famous London trip?

No reason why we can't target promotion. Hopefully Sugrue can add a few players from the club championship

Some interesting names that might come to the fore during the O'Byrne Cup and League.

Lots of local derbies, 6 Leinster teams in the division. Would love if Laois could get back to back promotions.

I think promotion will be difficult for Laois. The opener against Offaly, under their new manager, is going to be tough for a start.

I think the Down, Longford and Westmeath games will be the hardest to win and we have two of those at home.

Sligo away will not be easy and Carlow will come looking for some sort of revenge for last year but I think we are probably the strongest team in the group and should be pushing hard for promotion..

It'll be a very competitive League, there wont be much in terms of quality difference between 2nd and 6th. The aim should be for promotion but it wont be a disaster if we stay up in Div 3. Sugrue made leaps and bounds progress in 2018 so it'll be very interesting to see what we can do next year. Would love to see a lot of new faces, as well as the likes of Healy, Merideth and Keogh back to strenghten our backline options. It'll be great to see Sean Moore involved, if he's suitable next year. In fairness, he was quite slight but he has bulked up somewhat. 4 or 5 teams can realistically get promotion; Carlow, Down, Laois are probably the 3 strongest teams on paper but it'll certainly be tight. The difference will be in the preparation this winter.

The county Committee have ratified John Sugrue as Senior Football Manager for 2019 his selectors will be put forward at next meeting.
Also Ratified was Billy O Loughlin as u20 Manager and his selectors are Billy Delaney Stradbally and Liam Brophy St Joseph’s , Tommy Byrne Coach.

I see we’ve lost home advantage for one of our league Games next year for a “ breach of training camp rules”. That means 5 away , 2 at home I think

Load of shite in fairness. That a central body can tell you when it's ok to train. Load of shite. That they can place a ban on some counties when everyone is at it. Load of shite. That they somehow differentiate between training as a group and training as an individual. Another load of shite. The GAA heads live in a fantasy world. The modern GAA player can't afford to take time off properly if he wants to retain a certain level of fitness. They want the GAA and its players to be the best that they can be and pride themselves on the fact that this is voluntary and for the love of the sport. Then they go placing bans on lads who want to make themselves more competitive. I'd give the opposing team a walkover and throw the whole thing into chaos. Pure and utter shite

The Dubs went on an historical outing. Be clear now, it was an historical outing. Philly McMahon will bring out a book about the trip any day now, explaining about how it affected him deeply, almost as deeply as his brothers heroin addiction. Did you know Phillys brother was an addict? You may not have, he doesn't like to talk about it all that much. But yea, his brother died from drug addiction. True story. Not many people know about it.

That is truly pathetic. You should delete this post.

Agree 100% about this unfair punishment. a small number of counties are being punished while there were numerous counties who had training camps. For Dublin to be declared innocent is hard to take.
