In Pictures: Glorious day in Carlow as Laois ladies celebrate Leinster football success

Brought to you in association with Lilly’s Bar & Restaurant

Any day a Laois team win a Leinster title is a good day and so it was this afternoon in Dr Cullen Park in Carlow as the Laois ladies footballers claimed provincial glory.

Relegated from the senior ranks at the end of the 2017 season, Laois have grasped the opportunity of silverware with both hands in the lower grade.

Wins over Offaly, Wexford and now Wicklow have ensured Leinster success and they now go for the group stages of the All Ireland series with high hopes of reaching Croke Park in September.

We were in Carlow to report on their success today as they recorded a 2-13 to 0-13 win over Wicklow in scorching conditions.

And afterwards there were scenes of celebration as Laois got their hands on the Leinster trophy.

The long-serving Mags McEvoy accepted the trophy on behalf of her side but brought injured captain Lauramarie Maher along with her to raise the silverware.

Maher is out for the season with a knee injury but is an ever-present at training and games and was in high spirits with her team-mates as they celebrate with fans, friends and family after the presentation.

We captured a selection of images and hope, as Mags said in her winning speech, that today is only the start for this team.
