LIVE BLOG: Double day of action for Laois teams in Leinster championship

Brought to you in association with the Midlands Park Hotel

Championship season. You can’t beat it.

We’re in the middile of the busiest month of inter-county GAA action and two Laois teams are taking to the field in big games today.

At 2pm in O’Moore Park, the Laois U-21 hurlers, fielding a number of senior players, take on Westmeath.

And then at 5pm the seniors do battle with Westmeath in Bord na Mona O’Connor Park in Tullamore.

John Sugrue’s men haven’t lost a game in league or championship this year and come into today’s clash on the back of an epic extra-time win over Wexford and a Division 4 league final win over Carlow.

Indeed the last county to beat Laois was Westmeath in the O’Byrne Cup back in January.

Laois are slight favourites at 4/5 but haven’t won back to back championship games in Leinster since 2007.

We’ll be live blogging both games and will have reaction, analysis and more on site throughout the day.
