From what I've heard, he'll be doing three sessions a week, two during the week and one at the weekend.

I see nothing wrong with that, personally.

These are such polar opposites, clarity most definitely needed before an appointment is made.
I assumed that any link up with McGrath would have been along the lines of what Ogie has stated rather than what Mr Seagal has.
I have no information regarding which it is.
3 times a week is a fair commitment. For a man who likes a little bit of media spotlight, there are more prominent roles available!
The whole thing is unusual. Running to the media with the story is an interesting tactic, I hope it works out.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......

But he'll be free now, Sept until March anyway..maybe longer as to when championship starts if he's just doing championship media.

He could put a good shift in over the next 6-8 months.

Perhaps Marty,

But those 6-8 months could be spent working with the team of his choice to put it bluntly. But he chose to spend it with Laois minors.....

Fair enough.  Not sure what the reason behind it is, as there are loads of 'higher profile' jobs out there.  There'd be a bit of travel involved also.

Those 2 u14 squads look really exciting. There's 20 top class players there.

Id rate the u15s as a much stronger panel

Would ya? ok.  I'm only basing it on what i've seen in club games although it can be hard to compare when you're talking two different age groups.

Id be basing it on having seen both groups hurling together at club u15,obviously the u15 are going to have a year on those  u14 in those games,but I think the u15s have 3/4/5 who would make the grade on any county u15 team.

The 15s got to the semifinal of the u14 competition last year,I hope this years crop emulate them.

Did they get to the semi final? I thought they were knocked out in the group stage. Did they not lose their first game, beat Wexford but lose heavily to Cork in the last game.

Your right,they didnt that was the 2017 crop

2018,they missed a few frees in their first game which they should have won,beat wexford and then were demolished by Cork,who went on and won it as raging hot favorites.

Cork won the 2019 A and B u15 Arrabawn today also.

Cork beat laois  3-18 to 2-14 today,I dont know what stage of the competition it was at or which division.

At u14 today we only entered 1 team,they were in division 1


Dublin 4-15 v Laois 3-09
Galway 4-10 v Laois 0-8

Tipperary won both division 1 and 2 beating Offaly in div1 and Galway in div2 finals
