I see Arles have picked up a very good player in PJ Lawlor of Dr Crimes. A garda in Portlaoise I hear.
Portlaoise won't like that one bit.

Could be one for the DRA!

Good synopsis Merman. Wasn't at the game but that sounds like what Jack Nolan was describing!
Sounds a bit crazy to be saying after two losses, but we are in a great position with 3 games to go- and an ideal fixture list- Antrim and Dublin would be very tough away, hurling in Tullamore is no big deal.

There was more to the minor job than meets the eye Keyser. He wasn't trying to screw the County Board or let the minor panel (with his son involved) down.

He's taking on 2 senior teams this year, one in Tipp and one in Offaly. Both clubs have agreed to it.

And do you know how late he pulled out of the minor job, having "agreed" to take it?
Also, do you know how many jobs he "agreed" to take in Offaly alone this year?

I have nothing against him, have always stated a case for him on herre,  and he is not obliged to get involved in Laois teams.
BUT, there seems to be a pattern of behaviour emerging!

Family committments was the reason given.

You'd wonder what a selectors role is nowadays considering the back room team most managers bring with them.

Need at one Laois man who knows the county hurling scene inside out. Personally, would like to see a Camross man get the job (Arien Delaney??). Really disappointing representation on the Senior hurling team from our County Champions.

He has no interest in Laois. It’s easy know that from the number of Camross lads on the panel in recent years

Very unfair statement.

I'd be surprised if he wasn't the next Laois manager. I'd back him to do an excellent job as well.

Always been a supporter of his, but his behaviour around the Laois minor job last year, added to rumours of his "accepting" several different jobs in Offaly this year won't help him!

Any word on Trumera and Ballinakill? I would have assumed it would be approved or declined last night.
It was "approved" last night at county level. But the word is Croke Park are unlikely to allow it.

And so it should be blocked. No reason for allowing it. I don't understand how or why CB allowed it to be "passed" when it blatantly goes against their own bye laws introduced specifically to stop this kind of thing?

A selector resigning? Strange?

Some ridiculous stuff written here, and worse on Facebook, although at least they are not anonymous there (whether that is through moral standards or total ignorance I don't know).

We have made far worse appointments in both grades over the past few years. Anyone with an indepth knowledge of team preparation at 3rd level is more than qualified to take on an intercounty U20 team in my opinion.
Freshers All Ireland's trumps Laois intermediate + Leinster minor final appearance (for example).

3rd Level is where the modern approach is most successfully implemented and involves dealing with the most elite players. Surely a decent preparation.

I can't help but think that the reaction is more personal than business.

less than 2 or 3 minutes covering his time with Laois and Wicklow so heavily edited I would think.
You could make a mini series out of the man.

You could, if Denis O' Brien or Dermot Desmond or Mark Zukerberg were prepared to fund it.
"A well paid man" to paraphrase Padraig Flynn!

It's starting to look like there is a certain well connected group of people who Don doesn't like being criticised!!
Draw up a list there for posterity.

So far I have Dick Miller and the O' Loughlins!  ;D
As Detective Frank Drebin once said, "the truth hurts, maybe not as much as jumping on a bicycle with the seat missing, but it hurts!".

I'm goading! Happy new year!
Howld on there now, I’d be no fan of the O Loughlins, I just said the defeat wasn’t Billy’s fault. He wasn’t even responsible for a score!

Dick was the second greatest administrator this county ever saw.

Many Happy Returns!
I never said the defeat was Billy's fault either. I'd still say he felt fairly shite after the game though.
Ah don’t worry, a spin in here would have cheered him right up.

In fairness, I agree with the above. Nobody playing an amateur game deserves to have the finger pointed at him like that on a forum!

Ohhh great same old same old ....non inspiring choice

As opposed to? 5 more years of Gerry Kavanagh? Bring back Dick Miller maybe? I wonder would Tom Hassett be available?
Your club either nominated nobody or nominated one of the "same old same old brigade".

All the momentum with Leavy.

I said all along I thought O'Neill would get in, regardless of who dropped out.

From what I'm hearing now, I've a feeling he may be pipped again....

That would be both Mortimer and O' Neill gone. Big changes!

You are excused.

I'd list Liam O' Neill and John Hanniffy as at least as influential in this turn around from not having a pot to piss in to financial stability. There were others I'm sure.

The point remains. We are lampooning volunteers before they even get a job and telling them they won't match up to the great hero Chairmen of yesteryear!
I would be much more middle of the road on this issue. They guys nominated are fine, decent, hard working GAA men. The "heroes" of yesteryear were not quite the heroes they are being made out to be.

I think this is fair. And I stand over it.

Miller went in as chairman to save Laois from financial ruin and did so.

He was a fine Chairman who had his faults but did everything for the love of Laois GAA

It’s a very nasty tone to your post seeking to draw dirt on a man who did such good service to Laois GAA.




Personal or not, Parkinson is making some salient points.

Miller didn't save Laois on his own. Don't pull that one. You have the thrown lots of dirt at other potential candidates while holding up Miller as what they should all be striving to match. You can't do that and then throw a hissy fit when his faults & falls are pointed out! That is how a debate/discussion works. You should be well used to it.
I never said Miller was poor or ineffective!

That O' Neill was born in Offalyis absolutely irrelevant as far as I'm concerned.
