Here’s all your weekend sports fixtures with big soccer and GAA games down for decision

The Midlands face Donegal in the Kennedy Cup this evening

It’s getting to that time of the year where some sports are seeing their seasons wind down with rugby and basketball already packed up for the summer and soccer beginning to wind down now too.

But while the volume of soccer games is down, the importance of them isn’t. Portlaoise AFC have two cup finals to look forward to this weekend, with their first team in the Lummy O’Reilly League Cup final of the Leinster Senior League against Edenderry on Sunday and their U-19s taking on Emo on Saturday in the CCFL Cup decider.

There’s also cup final action on the double for Durrow side Lions – as they take on Evergreen in both the U-12 and U-16 finals in Kilkenny.

On the GAA scene, there is action for the Laois senior and minor hurlers on Saturday – while there is a busy schedule of club football games in Laois on Friday night.

All of the soccer and GAA fixtures for the weekend are listed below.
