    What's Hayes' Hotel (some kip today) got to do with a county thinking it's the home of hurling? AND... I know that the Gaelic Athletic Association was founded in the building

    The sobriquet "Premier County" was given to us by a Cork man and existed before the founding of the GAA.

    Massive, massive fair fcuks to Laois. Some job by EB to get them where they are today, when you consider where there were 6 months ago, nevermind a couple of years ago. Doubt if the Castletown inlaw outlaws have come back down to earth yet.

    Would love to see them do the biz on Sunday, but the odds of them catching another county on the hop wouldn't be great. If Dublin were indeed guilty of complacency, the massive kick in the hole they just received has probably kicked it out of all the other remaining counties too.

    I have a question, what is the difference between Laois and Laoise as I have a jersey from a few years ago which has Laoise on the crest but Laois on the back - both are Irish I presume?

    They're both wrong.

    The correct name for the county is Leix.

    The old one is the county crest and is in Irish. Then Laois GAA designed there own so they could copyright it. Many other GAA teams did the same.

    Everyone I know from Maryborough always call it Queen's County.

    Good article. One big factual inaccuracy however. He references Laois hurlers singing Lovely Laois in 1915. Roughly 80 years before the song was written by Christy Cullen! Surprising for Mr Rouse who is an academic.

    If ye are going to disagree why not compromise on Queen's County ?

    So called? They are offciially known as the Premier county and it has absolutely nothing to do with GAA or any sport for that matter, it was a name bestowed on the county for the part the men of Tipperary played in the fight against the British - ''where Tipperary leads, Ireland follows'' and was a name given to Tipp by a Cork man nonetheless.

    Thurles is where the GAA was founded and Semple Stadium has always been considered the spiritual home of hurling and again it was actually Paddy Buggy a Kilkenny man who coined the phrase when announcing that the 1984 All Ireland final would be held in Thurles.

    So proud of Laois' performance against Tipp yesterday. Pity the 'self proclaimed' Premier County had to use some 'naughty business' in the game though

    Do you have trouble reading in general? Trouble with seeing a player struck? I assume specsavers are active in the so called Queens county???
