Huge loss for Portlaoise and Laois. One of the few top managers inside the county. Rhode won't be an easy job either, as they don't seem to be as strong as previous years and I'm not sure they have much coming through underage. Best of luck to Malachy all the same.

How is he a loss?  Only ever managed portlaoise and won as expected. Even niall rigney in his first football job was able to win with portlaoise so if he leaves  is he a loss to portlaoise and laois?

Malachy's teams were far more dominant in Laois than what Rigney did with Portlaoise this year, barely scraping over the line in a lot of games. Portlaoise were capable of genuinely challenging for Leinster's when he was over them as well.

I agree with you Silkyskillssunshine also agree he will be all the better for the experience,  someone well capable of stepping up to Inter County at some point.

malachy had a better squad of players.  might have been capable of challenging but never won it? i agree rigney not the man either but you cant compare both due to the squads

On the football side I think the following are confirmed;

O'Dempseys - Francis Finn
Killeshin - Karl O'Dwyer
Rosenallis - Paddy Dunne
Ballyroan Abbey - Pauric Clancy
St Josephs - Joe Higgins
Courtwood - Eddie Kinsella
Portarlington - Martin Murphy
Ballylinan - Mick Lillis

Leaving Emo, Graigue, Ballyfin, Arles Killeen, Arles Kilcruise, Portlaoise, The Heath and Stradbally who I haven't heard as yet.

I heard last night that Donie Brennan is going to be Arles/Killeen player manager. Seems a bit far fetched as playing and managing are both tough gigs on their own let alone trying to do both. But possible I suppose given his coaching pedigree.
