Laois minor Hurling manager Christy Walsh has kept faith with the same team who were narrowly edged out by Dublin two weeks’ ago for tomorrow’s clash with Meath.

This is a quarter final tie and Laois have reached this stage by beating Offaly in round 1 by 2-22 to 0-14 before succumbing to Dublin by 1-11 to 1-8.

There is one positional switch on the team as Rosenallis’ John Maher moves to full back with Clough-Ballacolla’s Diarmuid Conway switching into the corner.

There is no place for Enda Parlon in the starting 15 as named. Parlon was originally named to start on the Laois team that played Offaly in round one but was ruled out after it was discovered he was ineligible.

However, the former Roscrea man has since transferred to Borris-Kilcotton and manager Walsh confirmed to LaoisToday that he is now available for selection again.

The Laois manager also said that there is an injury doubt of Diarmuid Conway and should the Clough-Ballacolla man not be fit enough for tomorrow’s clash, it seems likely that Parlon would come in for him.

The game throws in at 3pm in O’Moore Park and we will be there to Live Blog all the action as it happens.
