Laois boss Cheddar Plunkett has penned this brilliant open letter
He stepped down as boss of the county back in May, only to subsequently return to the position.

THE PAST FEW weeks have been somewhat of an emotional rollercoaster for Laois boss Seamas ‘Cheddar’ Plunkett.

He stepped down as boss of the county back in May, only to subsequently return to the position, while his side have experienced similarly mixed fortunes.

Now, at the end of a tumultuous season, he has penned this classy open letter.

A message on behalf of the Laois Senior Hurling Team and Management that has been distributed to our Clubs from Cheddar

July 7th 2015

Dear Chairman / Secretary

On behalf of Laois Senior Hurling team management, and also on behalf of the players themselves, I would like to thank you for your support for the county senior hurling team in 2015 and I would be pleased if you would pass on thanks to your executive and also to all of your Club members.

I would also like to express my gratitude to your club for encouraging Laois supporters to get in behind the team, especially in the Championships games. The support for the team in the Round Robin and in the Offaly, Galway and Dublin games was special and the players really appreciated it and regularly commented on it.

A number of clubs also made their facilities available to the county team for training during the year, sometimes at short notice. Your accommodation of the team and your courtesy and enthusiasm to make alternative arrangements in your club so that the county team could train on those days/nights was very welcome.

On a separate but related matter, if any county player from your club is carrying any injury from his county commitments and needs further treatment please revert to me as I would want all players to be well treated and go back to their respective clubs in the right form to play club games. I will also be advising the players of this.

In conclusion I would again like to thank you for your assistance and support in striving to drive Laois hurling forward in 2015 and I would like to wish your club all the best in all of the Laois Championships in 2015.

Yours sincerely

Seamas Plunkett
