Any Rosenallis fella able to tell me what the deal is with the Fennells and the "C"? Seems odd.

I believe their mother is a Culleton.
Culleton-Fennell was shortened when the lads went to primary school.
A fair mouthful alright. Thanks.

Not sure how many players stood out tonight, but, having seen only the second match, it seemed to me that the players were really up for it and served up an enjoyable game. I think this competition has a future.

To be honest, I did not recognize all of the players (apart from the well known county players), but Aaron Forbes looks like he has improved a lot.

I think the fact everyone showed up is the big positive here, they all want to make the Laois panel which is huge.  Credit where credit is due to Sugrue, managements  , the County Board, players & supporters for getting behind it.  It definitely has possibilityís, a scoreboard would be a huge help in the Center of Excellence.

Maybe there were programmes available last night, but I didn't get one, so it was hard to make out the players. I think Evin Keane of The Heath played well. Kevin Meaney also had a good game, and looked surprisingly fit. Evan Costelloe also had a good game. I was disappointed at the poor representation from Portarlington. As a club, they should be very disappointed as well. They may have a lot of young players, but they seem to be going nowhere. That a town of its size could only manage to have one player on view says much about them. Understandably lacking the O'Dempsey's and Courtwood players also, the NE team seemed to have a squad of only 17.  In general though, I was impressed with eagerness of the players in the one match that I saw.

West north west looked the most disjointed out of the 4 teams but the Moore chap was a standout .

Games had a nice bite about them but in truth it was the county men or ex county men like a meaney which stood out.

I suppose if it added 3 players to the panel and maybe a returning meaney / boyle /kehoe /or Merdith then we would be stronger going forward..

Was few lads i couldnt make out in the second game which were good one half back on the south east team in particular
