Two Laois teams were knocked out of their respective Leinster championship campaigns today – the minor hurlers beaten by Offaly in Tullamore while the U-20s went down to Meath in Navan.
Closer to home there was a full round of action in ACFL Division 2 – and the picture has become clearer.
St Joseph’s and Courtwood have finished their league games – and both are assured of at least a place in the semi-finals. St Joseph’s are top and while Barrowhouse and Park-Ratheniska could technically catch them, the Kellyville men are looking good for automatic promotion and a final place.
Barrowhouse are facing two games this week – against Park on Monday evening and Clonaslee on Wednesday – which will determine their finishing position.
Barrowhouse, Park, Clonaslee and Timahoe are all still in the mix for a semi-final place.
At the other end of the table, Kilcavan and Annanough are in the bottom two places and will need a combination of results to go their way if either of them are to avoid relegation.
