St. Paul's won't last, sadly.
Almost definitely not. Best players will be snapped up by other stronger hurling clubs. Slieve Margy got f***ed over by county board and other clubs and same will happen.

John Sugrue
P J Dempsey
Padraig Clancy
Kevin Doogue
Donnacha Phelan
Eoin Kearns

I think all of them expressed an interest but then Eddie did a fine Job getting beaten by Wicklow, so the review must have been positive from Fergal.
You "think all of them expressed an interest"?  Sugrue definitely didn't anyway. Out of the rest of them you named kearns would have been an interesting appointment. Can't really see what Donncha Phelan offers. He didn't exactly tear up trees with the minors!

Eddie was given the u20 job and there was alot more candidates looking for it and for me alot more better men,,but the politics of laois GAA is great
Well if you know so much, who were all these other outstanding candidates? Throw up these names, you say there's a lot of them.

Round 3 draw;

Killeshin v Stradbally

Clonaslee St Manman's v Courtwood

Portlaoise v St Joseph's

Emo v Rosenallis

And the Relegation Semi-Finals

Ballyfin v The Heath

Arles-Killeen v Ballylinan

All hard games to call. I'd be edging towards Stradbally, Courtwood, Portlaoise and Emo. And maybe Ballyfin and Ballylinan to stay out of the relegation final.

One of our GDA's didn't cover himself in glory either. Fine example to younger players.

I know people in Tullamore are highly pissed off over this and are prepared to dig in on it. All the money Offaly GAA have coming in but for some reason they are trying to screw the Tullamore club.

Winners Section:

Portarlington v Courtwood - Port by around 6 or 7 - they have a bench to see them through
Ballyroan Abbey v St Joseph's - Think Ballyroan Abbey will win by around 3. Some excellent young lads in their team.
O'Dempseys v Rosenallis - expect O'Dempseys experience to edge them through
Stradbally v Graiguecullen - Graigue have a nice young team and I think they might win this but wouldn't be surprised if we had extra time

Losers Section:

The Heath v Emo - Emo should bounce back although local derby might produce a big game from Heath
Arles-Killeen v Killeshin - Killeshin by 5 unless the Kingstons can produce an almighty performance
Portlaoise v Ballyfin - Surely Portlaoise but if they repeat the Courtwood performance, they will get punished
Clonaslee St Manmans v Ballylinan - Walsh and Farrell back should swing it to Ballylinan

Worrying result for Portlaoise. While they can't be ruled out, they have now lost in successive years to Emo and Courtwood. I didn't see last night's game but am hearing Hugh Coghlan is involved in the background with Courtwood and is highly rated.
Hands up though. Never saw that result coming.

Starts next Thursday night with Portlaoise v Courtwood. Hard to see anything other than a Portlaoise win in that.
Expect Port to easily account for Ballyfin.
Emo v O'Dempseys could be a cracker.

Just started this to avoid confusion with the 2020 thread.
Great result for Castletown the other night!

Big win for Port considering how little they would have trained since the county final and the celebrations that would have happened. It will give them a big boost going into the championship to get one over their main rivals.

Portlaoise kid, what are the new generation of Portlaoise players like? Any of last night that you could see stepping up to the Laois setup?
Yeah I be happy with the new bunch,  I would expect  a good few of them to nail down starting spots with Portlaoise and become very good players, where they go from there time will tell but I'd be disappointed if a few of them were not in or around the Laois senior panel in the next few years.
Saunders looks to be a fine player - is it the case that he was asked on to the senior panel but didn't want to commit?

What's the proper channels to go down a grade?
Apply to county board to go down.

Q. How were spink back in the junior B when they were junior A the last few years?

They must have pulled a few stunts themselves...
They went through the proper channels to be fair to them. Graigue on the other hand also did nothing contrary to the rule book but if I'm not mistaken a new bye law prevents any club from doing that again i.e. withdrawing a higher grade team to benefit a lower grade team.

Use of nicknames still an issue.

Lord Jaysus, I appreciate the service Laois TV provides but really it's ridiculous how bad the commentary on the O'Dempseys v Killeshin game was. A television commentary should be very different from a radio commentary. We can see what's happening so you don't need to do a play by play description. The less said about the use of nicknames and first names the better.
Dicey, Shaq, Birdy, Timmo etc!
