This will be a big help to our new managerial team to see what talent is out there..

Thought they were going to come up with "identifiable" team names.
North, South, West and East didn't exactly tax the minds much!
I hope lads buy into it. The West team last year kinda fell asunder as it went on and struggled for lads. It may help our new manager a bit but I'm not sure it's the silver bullet.

Did we actually find any extra players from it last year as i cant remember any new names playing this year that was not already in the squad or the u-20 squad.

Marty Scully, Paddy O'Sullivan, think there's a few more.

Scully was surely called up on the basis of his displays for his club last year (which were brilliant) not in the divisional league. Same with Adam Campion.

also you have 5 or 6 lads over each team from different clubs and they all fighting to get their own players on the field even though deep down they know they not good enough for county standard. on the other hand it did raise a few pound for charity so it cant be put down to much but for spotting talent i don't think its the way to go. look at the progress of the senior hurlers this year and there was no divisional tournament ran!!!

There's 8 Senior Hurling Clubs in Laois. Anyone putting their hand up elsewhere is easily spotted. You're talking through your hoop.

Only issue I see with it is the amount of people on the management panels. Otherwise itís fine.

my point is look at the senior football championship instead of running a tournament at the end of the year.

They did. The clubs refused and acted with all sorts of fuckology. We need the clubs to realise they're at f**k all on their own and start coming together, like Borris Kilcotton did, like Rathdowney Errill did, etc etc.

They wont. So we have this. Give it a chance, its harming no one.
