Can you name the Laois football team from our last meeting with Clare?

Mick Lillis was in charge last year

The last team the Laois footballers played Clare was at the very same stage as where they will meet on Saturday – Round 2 of the All-Ireland Qualifiers.

Mick Lillis was at the helm and Laois travelled to Ennis as firm favourites after defeating Armagh twice.

They were forced into a replay against the Orchard man having used too many subs in the first game.

And Laois looked to be heading for victory as they led by 1-10 to 0-9 after 51 minutes played.

But incredibly, Laois didn’t score again and Clare came back to win by a point.

On Saturday, Laois face Clare again 12 months on from that game but what we want to know is, can you name the players that played that day?

Mick Lillis used 20 players that day but five of them are no longer involved with Laois.

We’ve given you five minutes and we’ve even tried to give you a small hint:
