The big result of the weekend was Rosenallis’s thrilling one-point won over The Harps in the opening round of the Laois SHC ‘A’ while Trumera got their campaign in the IHC off to a winning start thanks to a hard-earned win over Park-Ratheniska.
Elsewhere there was action in the lower-grade football championships.
Errill booked their place in the JFC ‘B’ semi-final thanks to a win against Mountmellick while Slieve Bloom also got the better of O’Dempsey’s in the Junior ‘C’ and Clonaslee beat Ballyroan-Abbey.
