I havenít seen Conor Brennan, Liam Delaney , Ciaran Carroll , John Rogers or Adam Brennan either  . They would of been key players for ballyroan in previous years
Better players have come through to take their places and they are getting better performances and results.

Graiguecullen v Emo
I think Graigue should win this one but it could be closer than last year's semi final. Emo might have a few extra players available to them from the Rosenallis game so wouldn't rule them out completely. But Graigue should still win by 3 or 4 points.

Portarlington v Stradbally
I think Port could win this one easily enough. Had a very good challenge game v St Vincents since beating Courtwood. Stradbally seem to be improving from a few very average years. Few nice young players coming through but I think this will be a bit early in their development.

Ballyroan Abbey v Courtwood
Hard to know with both of these teams how good or bad they are! A right game to avoid for betting purposes. BA should edge it I suppose but there could be a kick in Courtwood.

Portlaoise v O'Dempseys
Portlaoise seem to be gradually improving since their disastrous first game. O'Dempseys have two wins but really not sure how strong they are. Another hard one to call but I think O'D's might edge it.

As this thread is "The Future for Laois Football" Anyone any word or know what's going on with the Laois minor setup? Has anyone been mentioned or does anyone know of anyone that went for it, seems there taking their time announcing the management team?
Gordon Lawlor (Mountmellick/Kilcavan) had this group since under 13 or 14 but I don't know if he is available.

Saw Arles last night and they were good value for their win over Crettyard. They had a young lad Munnelly up front who did very well!
I think they might play Park Ratheniska now in the semi final? They've already played Mountmellick.
Also saw Timahoe scrape past The Rock a couple of weeks ago. Brilliant late goal by Quigley.
Should be a Mountmellick v Park Ratheniska final.

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!
