Laois match won’t clash with Champions League final while the Dubs are on the way back to Portlaoise

The GAA have confirmed the fixture details for the Leinster senior football championship quarter finals.

The game between Laois and Westmeath is the only one that will take place on Saturday May 26.

There were fears among Liverpool fans that the game might clash with the Champions League final in Kiev but that is not the case.

The game will throw in at 5pm in O’Connor Park in Tullamore on the day with the clash of Wexford and Offaly in the Leinster Hurling Championship at 7pm.

Meanwhile, it has also been confirmed that the Dublin footballers will come to O’Moore Park on May 27.

A crowd of 13,328 attended last year’s Dublin-Carlow Leinster quarter-final in Portlaoise while 16,764 turned out in Nowlan Park for the Dublin-Laois tie in 2016.

That game in 2016 was Dublin’s first championship match outside Croke Park since 2006.

Dublin haven’t played Wicklow in the championship since in 1990.


When they came last year, they produced incredible scenes which LaoisToday was there to capture.

While our funnyman Mark Doheny also came up with a handy guide for Dublin fans who made the trek from the capital.

The remaining Leinster quarter finals will also take place on May 27 as Kildare face Carlow in O’Connor Park at 2pm while Longford host Meath at 3pm.
