Rosenallis and Clonaslee will represent Laois at the Feile na nGael hurling tournament this summer.

This is the only All-Ireland competition at club level for juveniles and both clubs will be in Wexford from June 16-17 following triumphs in the Laois edition last weekend.

Rosenallis were crowned ‘A’ champions following a campaign which began with a hard fought round 1 win over Rathdowney-Errill on a score of 2-11 to 3-5.

This set up a showdown with the newly formed Raheen Parish Gaels in the quarter final on Saturday which they also overcame to reach the last four.

On Sunday morning, the Rosenallis lads went up against Clough-Ballacolla but prevailed by 1-8 to 0-6.

Later that day, they faced The Harps in the decider and were crowned champions following a 2-9 to 2-3 victory.

ROSENALLIS TEAM: Mason Creagh, Paul Egan, Fionn Kempster, Eoin Sharp, Alex Redmond, Aodh Bowes, John Hughes, Ciaran Cuddy, Alex Marron, Cathal Keady, David Dooley, Jimmy Hyland, Charlie Friel, Denis Grehan, Diarmuid Dooley, Colin Bennett, Eoin McEvoy, Geariod Glancy, Pauric Glancy, Robert Culliton, David Kelly, Nick Dunne, Cian Ryle

In the B section, Clonaslee began their quest for glory with an emphatic 5-11 to 2-2 win over Park-Ratheniska-Timahoe on Friday evening.

The men in red and white then received a walkover from Slieve Margy which put them straight into the final on Sunday.

They faced a Na Fianna side who had narrowly beaten St Fintan’s Mountrath in their semi final but Clonaslee were relentless and went on to record a 3-4 to 1-3 win.
