Just reading Cheddar has taken over the reins at James Stephen s along with another good Laois man  Seamus Dwyer . These are the people the county board  need involved in the continued development of Laois hurling. But alas we know better .
Best of luck to the lads in Kilkenny I'm sure they'll do a right job there .

Spot on. Cheddar should be well paid and facilitated by Laois GAA to run underage hurling development. I would happily put my hand in my own pocket to help as would most other hurling people in Laois. So, who exactly is in charge of hurling development in Laois?
I wonder will he go for the recently advertised position of games manager

...A hurling supporters club with finance behind it might be a way to get the CB to listen...

I think Clonadmad hits the nail right on the head in his second paragraph of his last statement .

There was 4 maybe 5 lads sitting in the stand Saturday night that potentially would be given starters on this current  Laois team but for individual reasons have decided inter county hurling isn't for them presently . This has to be respected .

It makes you think though . It definitely effects a county our size more . I don't recall this level of apathy in the 80s following laois hurling.  Club level was fierce but they all togged out for the county . But then again I realise times and society have changed but still think something has gone astray here in Laois.

I think maybe you are not of an age to remember then!


You think . 😊😊😊😊 I'm taking that as a compliment
