Live Blog: Last ever Laois MHC final

Ballinakill hurlers have a new manager

The last ever Laois Minor Hurling Championship final takes place tonight as old rivals Camross and Castletown-Slieve Bloom go head to head.

The age grade will be scrapped at the end of this year with the U-17 championship, which is taking place later this year, becoming the primary competition.

Castletown-Slieve Bloom are reigning league champions after defeating The Harps at the start of July.

But when the pair clashed in the group stage of that competition, it was Camross who came out on top by two points.

However, Camross subsequently lost to The Harps in a semi-final and Castletown-Slieve Bloom defeated Raheen Parish Gaels before edging Camross’ conquerors.

Camross had greater representation on the Laois minor and U-17 panels this year.

They had six minors and one U-17 while Robert Tyrrell played at midfield for the Laois minor footballers.

While Castletown-Slieve Bloom had just two in Joe Phelan and Joe McCormack.

Nevertheless, this should be extremely close and it is likely to go down to the wire.

So stay with us for the evening as we bring you all the action as it happens:
