Rob Tyrell gone to Courtwood for football according to Laois today. Good one for Courtwood. Obviously wanted to play football at a better level and Camross don't really take it too seriously

Got off to a great start and ran through dublin but they started to foul and drag back from around 50 yards out and while the ball was dead just flooded players back and broke down laois attacks by weight of numbers. The dublin break at speed was devastating and left our defenders exposed 1 on 1 giving up scoring oppertunities in acres of space  young O Flynn was pulled and dragged every time he attempted to get forward and the ref allowed this systematic fouling on laois players without any cards shown This is the Dublin system and as long as they keep getting away with it theyll stay doing it

I heard young Dunne got injured playing a practice match on the Sunday after the u20 final. The chap was outstanding that night but practically had to be carried off afterwards. Surely the Port and Courtwood/Emo lads could have been given the weekend off. He’s no good to Laois now and a huge loss to his club. There’s no advantage in having county men anymore for clubs

Just in from Stradbally   Great game of football serious credit to both sides for producing a game like that in December. Courtwood Emo marginally the better side and had better scoring forwards but port could have snuck it.   That Dunne chap at midfield from courtwood is a serious footballer best player on the field by far in my opinion

Mike Henchy spoke to lads at u14 regional football  finals last night and he was driving home that if you are a dual player then you stay playing both so I suppose that’s a start too.

I think any abuse of refs from players or mentors-should result in an automatic free in from 30 meters anything closer is moved straight in front of goals 13 meters out. As I heard the bould Tommy Tynan say at a juvenile match recently when bringing up the ball “ you keep talking and I’ll keep walking”. It would cause mayhem for a while but if applied across the board players would realize that mouthing will cost scores and their teammates would very quickly impose discipline on the talkers

Took a stroll up to the mill field on Saturday . Courtwood Emo made bits of O Dempsey’s I half expected a competitive match but this was terrible ce took off half their team at half time  or just after but the match was over after 20 mins. Port v Portlaoise should be a tight affair with I think port just shading it. Haven’t seen Portlaoise but they have a few lads with senior medals in their pockets so won’t be too bad

Maybe divisional teams should be incorporated into the senior championship with senior teams dropping to ten or twelve and any team below senior being allowed to have their players play with senior divisional teams while still being allowed to play with their clubs. Might encourage lads to commit to divisional teams

Apologies just keeping it short. Think I may have referred to O Dempsey’s as o Ds before and Stradbally parish gaels as Stradbally and even the minor team as Emo so obviously no offense intended

Anyone at matches over the weekend ?? Is last 4 set in store I presume it’s Portlaoise O Dempsey’s Portarlington and Courtwood. Ballyroan must be disappointed I see they only lost to courtwood by a point. Are Portlaoise favourites for this or would Portarlington be

I think Young Nerney is a good chap who got thrown in at the deep end as a very young lad and struggled a bit but will develop as he gets older. Halloran from courtwood looked good during the championship this year and seems to be a big fit fella who might do a job too

I think Attride has put in a good few years with Laois already and to classify it as walking away is unfair on the lad. He’s young and probably has a few bob saved to go traveling and has decided to get it done before he gets older and life (marriage kids mortgage etc)  takes over. His commitment is never in doubt so a break is well deserved. I don’t know much about Donie but he seems like a lad who can take or leave it. An enormous talent and I always said he could be our Michael Murphy if he had applied himself the same way. Alas he hasn’t and we’ll never see what he should have been so maybe we should just move on without him and hopefully Evan blossoms into the super footballer he can be.
