Heard last night Mick Dempsey is considering a role with Quirkes back room team after been approached recently . Not sure how true it is but there has been contact apparently.

That would be great if it happened.

That would be some coup for Laois
mick is an excellent physical coach and has proved it time and time again with Kilkenny but i have heard to often how the laois lads dont repsond to well to physical training (probably only a rumour also as i think county players should be commended for all the time and effort they put in) so not sure if this appointment will go ahead.
Lads don't respond well to physical training? What are you even on about. They are going to train to get better physically.
I mean they don't like taking on the extra physical training that mick would bring or require. Don't shoot the messenger

Surely anyone who wants to play inter county football has to be willing to put in the physical work.

i do personally think myself tho that the type of player that John Surgure was bringing in over the last few years suggested that we were putting more of an emphasis on the physical fitness side of the game so maybe mick might also think like that,

Think of the commitment these lads have to put into going to training 3 - 5 times a week, cutting off some of their social and family life. The have the respect of any clear thinking person and well as good GAA people. If they were afraid of a bit of hard physical work, they wouldn't show up to begin with; that goes for any counties players. "Don't shoot the messenger." You're not the messenger, you're an idiot  ;D!

Great news if true but I'll believe it when I see it. Mick may have other plans and I'm sure the queue to get him is pretty long. For those who weren't about or remembers his  previous role with laois. That didn't finish well.

I'd agree with that . Also his brother Sean's  Tenure didn't exactly end in harmony .

Sean's tenure at senior didn't work out but he did achieve wonderful results with the underage groups he had...in Micks case it was laois officialdom that caused the departure. He proved his pedigree since.  I'd safely say Quirke has his own crew sorted and Mick will change direction and do his own thing..My opinion.

Quirke hasn't even been appointed yet, how can he have a backroom team... ??
