Fixture details for Laois hurlers and footballers confirmed

Laois Wicklow

The CCC has confirmed the fixture details for the Laois hurlers and footballers – and it’s not good news for the fans!

The Laois footballers will face Clare in O’Moore Park at 3pm on Saturday while the hurlers will be action at 7pm in Parnell Park later that day.

It means that supporters of the two teams are faced with either picking one team over the other or attempting to drive into Dublin at a time when traffic is likely to be at its heaviest.

The Clare minor footballers are playing in the Munster final in Killarney against Kerry on Sunday – meaning that the game could not be fixed for then to avoid a clash.

Meanwhile, the Leinster hurling final is set to take place on Sunday so the All-Ireland Qualifier clash between Dublin and Laois had to be fixed for Saturday as well.
