#Laois a county of 70,000 people competing in fourth round of Senior Football qualifiers and Senior Hurling All Ireland QF.Surely the most over achieving county in Ireland? Brilliant #gaa @CLGLaois @officialgaa— Richard Dunne (@richydunne) July 14, 2019 The Twitter reaction as the Laois hurlers bravely go down to Tipperary 2020 U-15 ‘B’ glory for Ballyroan-Abbey following six point win over Killeshin Facebook So proud of the @CLGLaois hurlers. Might be a little biased, but thank you for giving the county such a boost over the past few weeks. And thank you for sticking out those bitterly cold Friday nights in Heywood long before any day in the sun 💙 https://t.co/Ub2eLgeCAT— Siún Lennon (@SiunLennon) July 14, 2019 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR You get feck-all in defeat, I know – but… down to 14 men, against all the odds.. that has been some performance by this @CLGLaois team. Can walk off heads held high. What a job @NedzerB13 has done. Brilliant.— Hugh Cahill (@hughcahill7) July 14, 2019 The mark of a bad referee is when he gives a soft free to a team who he has just rode.Exhibit A: 55 mins 50 seconds Croke Park— Shane Ó Meachair (@someachair) July 14, 2019 Paudie Maher is some tough man.

They gave this some shot & have been an example to all of what hard work can achieve. The Laois ultras on Hill 16 gave an exhibition aswell….

He’s Terrible. . Ruins more games than not— Eoin Larkin (@11larky) July 14, 2019 WhatsApp The Laois Tipp game is all about the referee. Colm Lyons is completely out of his depth. #tippvlaois— Joe Dooley (@DooleyJoe) July 14, 2019 TAGSTwitter reaction Colm Lyons is just not inter county standard. In fact if a club referee reffed games the way he does you’d be disgusted. #Gaa #tippvlaois #SundayGame— Anthony McCormack (@ant_mccormack) July 14, 2019 Very Good Performance by Laois today, and Treated very Badly by a Poor Ref. A Real Credit to their County, a Joy to watch them this Season.
