Can anyone explain how Jim Bolger's son is playing for Killeshin? Is Jim living in this area and/or involved in Killeshin?
Could he be somebody that could be convinced to become involved in Laois GAA Admin eventually?
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......

Well Stradbally were way, way worse than I expected. Without Jody Dillon they offered nothing up front.

Killeshin were decent, especially when you consider they're missing three good lads. Stevie Attride was the best player on the park. David Aston was very good and Michael Doran showed well in spells.


Killeshin      3-14
Stradbally   2-6

Crettyard v Kileen was an aul scrap. The quality was low at times thou. Kingston was great to watch. Kileen are  a very old side. Crettyard dug deep with who they had, O' Carroll had a few nice.pints.Could have went either way at the end.

I thought O'Dempsey's had a better idea of how to utilise Dan McCormack on Saturday evening than we saw with Laois u20s. They seemed to be giving him better service. It will be interesting to see how he gets on as the championship progresses.

Thought that myself, Dan played really well and abit unlucky not to score more.

Would anyone be able to give an age break down of the killeen team? Id be familiar with maybe half of them and would guess at least 10 starters are over 30.

I think only Donie Kingston and Conor Keightley were under 30 from the Crettyard game. Fair play to all at the club for keeping Killeen afloat at Senior but they're going to need to come up with a solution soon.

Kilcruise v Portlaoise if they get over Courtwood or a local derby against Ballylinan.

I seen Stradbally just fell short of neighbours The Heath in their match. Sure 49 points is just a kick of a ball really  :D ;D

That was a reference to this scoreline in Junior A Championship,  The Heath 8-23, Stradbally  0-1
What is happening to football in Stradbally, seniors well beaten by Killeshin too …  3-14 to 2-6

Port have a nice look about them. A good team on paper as well as being a good young team. If that group stay together, it's easy to see them progressing and being contenders in a year or two.

Keightley can't be far off 30 either if at all. And Donie is 29 in a fortnight's time.
