For the second time in six seasons, the Laois footballers will play in Division 4 of the National League in 2023.
A seven-point loss at home to Longford on Sunday condemned Laois to the drop.
For Longford man Billy O’Loughlin it was a bitter-sweet return to O’Moore Park. The Arles-Killeen club man and former Laois U-20 manager oversaw a comprehensive win as Longford avoided relegation at Laois’s expense.
We look at where it went wrong for Laois, how it’s a symptom of a wider malaise in Laois football and what can be done in the short term to boost Laois coming into the championship.
We also talk about the start of the club football leagues, the reaction to Alan’s rankings and chat about a big win for Laois camogie.
