And so the 2022 season is up and running – though defeat was the order of the day for both the Laois hurlers and footballers over the weekend.
The footballers were beaten 6-10 to 0-13 by Wexford in Shelmaliers on Saturday while the hurlers entertained Wexford in Rathdowney on Sunday where they went down by 1-27 to 1-16.
Steven and Alan look back on both game and try not get too excited either way by pre-season results in January.
Still it was a far-from-ideal start for Billy Sheehan’s management reign and they have little time to lick their wounds before playing Meath on Wednesday night in Stradbally.
Alan also tries to explain the development work done in Rathdowney in the last couple of years while the lads also chat about Sue Ramsbottom’s upcoming appearance on Laochra Gael, a off-broadway hurling success for a Friend of LaoisToday, a new Laois camogie manager and success for the Portlaoise Panthers U-20 ladies basketball team.
