The big day has arrived for the Laois minor footballers.
Donncha Phelan’s young side can claim a Leinster final place today – but standing in their way are Meath.
The Royals are overwhelming favourites to win the championship outright.
They came through a group which saw them win their first four matches and knock Dublin out in the process.
They lost to Wicklow in their last game but made 13 changes for that encounter so Laois can expect to face a very different side here.
