James McCartan deflated after Down 'horror show' in Laois

James McCartan is hugely disappointed by his Down team's defeat by Laois in the league at Portlaoise.

"The first half was a horror show for us," said McCartan after the 1-16 to 2-10 defeat.

"Laois were scoring at will and only for their firing wide after wide, they would have been 15 or 16 points in front."
