Would have liked to have seen the Meath game played somewhere other  than Portlaoise particularly at this time of year. Lots of options around the county with the facilities required to host an O'Byrne Cup match of a December night .

It probably will be outside O'Moore Park. That's been the pattern for a few years now. It's on a Saturday. With it being Meath, Portarlington makes most sense.

Knowing our county board it will probably be Crettyard

No better place outside OMP than Cretty. From your inference you have a gripe with Crettyards pitch

Whether the previous poster has a gripe with Crettyard or not, I don't know. But Port is the nearest end of the county to Meath. Why drag them to Cretty?

I think it has to be in Portlaoise cos the lights there are the only ones of hurling standard in the county. Football works with weaker lights.

It's one of the new rule changes for secondary competitions in football next year:

1.6b: All secondary football competitions, such as the O'Byrne and McKenna cups, shall make use of a sliotar. Optionally, teams may chose to use a sliotar in the first half and a big ball in the second. Hurls will not be permitted.

Seemingly it's to encourage counties like Kilkenny to play more football.

Any word on new additions to the Laois panel for the O'Byrne cup?

Infuriating that our county board or website wouldn't even throw up a panel or something. We don't expect a starting 15 or anything.

I see our county board PRO got Leinster PRO of the year award and well deserved but there is plenty of room for improvement in some areas.
