« on: April 23, 2019, 10:23:06 PM »
Anyone know much about them ..over 40s likes of wolly Chris Conway etc playing I seen a bit of their game tonight they got hammered  by park juniors .

Seemed to be wearing stradballly jerseys .

Can the county board not give them a set ?

Do they have anything to Do with the county board like other master teams or are they on their own ??

No idea what the story is with them as itís there first year. Saw a good bit of Kildare last year as they played their games in round towers. They were really out on their own and did a lot of their own sponsorship. Kildare had little or no ex-county players, mostly active club players. Laois donít seem to have much in the line of social media like most of the other teams have to know what they are at. The fixtures arenít kind to Laois, first game I think is against Dublin who won the all Ireland last year and I think they have mayo as well . From the Facebook page for the association dublin have been in the gym with Conor mcgregors trainer since January. Ang idea who played??

As someone said, the teams that do well in this don't bother much with ex county guys but tend to play lads aged 40, 41, 42 who are still in good nick and playing club football.
Noel Garvan and Chris Conway certainly fit that bill. Tom Kelly would too. JP Conway, Paul McDonald, John Kealy, Podge Langton, Tom McDonald all would be big additions.

I see they're playing this weekend, and have been given a brand spanking new set of geansai's by Laois GAA, who also supplied them with footballs as well. I presume the jerseys wont be tight fit!

The lads werenít bad, they got hit early by Dublinís fast start but were well in the game after that and had a far better second half. Dublin as from their Facebook page were fit. Laois Probably had a lot of square pegs in round holes but if they can get a bit better organized they have a great chance.

Nice win for the lads last night against a Westmeath team that had Martin Flanagan and alan Mangan flying. Down a good few players from the last day but had Darren Rooney at centre back and he made an awful difference. A lot of sore bodies at the end
