Another extremely busy evening of action in the GAA scene in Laois.
In the ACFL Division 1A, O’Dempsey’s moved back into second place in the table thanks to a six point win over Arles-Killeeen tonight.
They are currently occupying the second league final place but they will be replaced by Portlaoise if the Town can defeat Ballyroan-Abbey tomorrow evening.
In the two other games, Graiguecullen defeated Stradbally and The Heath beat league leaders St Joseph’s but these games have no baring on the overall league standings.
Meanwhile, the Division 1B final line up has been confirmed. Ballylinan booked their place with a nine point victory over Emo while Killeshin’s ambitions were ended by neighbours Crettyard.
Killeshin’s defeat, coupled with Portlaoise’s decision to give Portarlington a walkover, means that Ballylinan will face Portarlington in the decider next weekend.
There was one hurling game down for the decision this evening as Colt booked an ACFL Division 1A final date against The Harps following a three point win over Rathdowney-Errill in Mountrath.
