weny to the ballinakill abbeyleix match yesterday as is thought it would be competitive after the disaster i witnessed that morning in the heath, total mismatch ballinakill missing a lot, but did notice they were playing 2 slieve margy players, meaning that the result might be the least of their problems

Ballinakill as in the Ballinakill Park Ratheniska Gaels u16 team?

Slieve Margey players are cleared to play in this amalgamation,if that's what your on about.

The Portlaoise u16's conceded their game also.

The 'Gaels' part should have been a giveaway.

Does anybody actually know who was appointed as manager of Ballinakill senior hurlers? It was previously reported that a former intercounty manager was taking over but who actually ended up in the position.

Jeez cool the jets. Had heard a while back or maybe read it in the newspaper they are set to appoint a former intercounty manager and was just curious who that was or who they ended up appointing. This is a general gaa forum where people discuss all sorts of GAA related topics?...yeah.?

90+ primary school boys at Cuman na bunscoil trials during the week.

Big take up from few schools in traditional hurling areas who hadn't previously attended. Final panel of 30 to be picked.

whats the general approach in other counties? Dont think many use adult refs,but could be wrong. Possibly use refs from whatever the youth ref program is called.

Also the biggest driver of whether "ref it yourself" will work will be the behaviour or coaches and parents on the sideline

Yea, I agree here, not ideal but surely mentors are adult enough to referee a match fairly.

Any serious hurling county has proper refs over u12 games

Laois has lost 15 refs in the past year and only replaced them with 5,a shortfall of 8 in one year alone.

There are 14/15 clubs not supplying any refs to either code,In the likes of Tipperary and Galway,If your Club does not supply a ref,your club cant play in any competitions,full stop.

One Final point,if a player gets injured,the first thing insurance will look for,is the refs report,if there's no ref .........

The clubs have to take responsibility as they are not supplying referees. The county board can't do much unless the clubs buy in. In any case the level of abuse emanating from the sideline would make anyone have to question why they would take up refereeing. However,  I don't see any reason why a go games ref 17/18 can't handle an under 12 game providing they is cop on coming from the line.

The clubs won't take any responsibility if they are let away with it.

Supposing we have a net loss of another 5/8 refs next year,what happens then?.

The solution is fairly simple,from 2018/2019 each club in Laois must have a ref in place,otherwise they are barred from all competitions.
