Twins Daniel and Ciarán Comerford are set to appear for Laois teams for the fifth consecutive weekend
Ciarán Comerford

Ciarán and Daniel Comerford are set to be in championship action for the fifth consecutive weekend on Saturday.

The dual stars are integral parts of both the Laois minor football and hurling teams.

Their run of games began on April 8 when they both started in the half forward line in a 2-22 to 0-14 win over Offaly in round 1 of the Leinster Minor hurling championship.

Ciarán hit six points from play in the game and went on to be named the Electric Ireland GAA Minor Hurling Player of the Week.

The following week, on April 22, the twins were in action again against Dublin in round 2 of the hurling. Despite a gallant effort, Laois went down by 1-11 to 1-8.

The Harps duo attentions then switched to the big ball as Ciarán lined out at full forward and Daniel at corner back for the Laois minor footballers round one clash at home to Louth.

It would prove to be another weekend which produced a disappointing result for the pair as Laois succumbed to a 2-11 to 0-15 defeat after extra time.

But the pair would have little time to dwell on that loss as last Saturday then were back on the field in O’Moore Park to face Meath in the Leinster Minor hurling quarter final.

Both brothers were on the score sheet once again. Ciarán hit 1-7 while Daniel chipped in with a point in a 1-19 to 1-14 victory which sets up a semi-final clash with Kilkenny.

The lads are due to take on Meath again tomorrow afternoon as their attentions turn to the footballers who are in a must win Leinster qualifier.

And they may even appear for a sixth successive weekend as they are due to be part of the Laois hurling team which takes on Kilkenny in the Leinster semi-final on May 13.

And they are doing all of this whilst completing their Leaving Certificate. Not bad going at all.
