And so after a busy week of championship action it’s now time to look forward.
The draws for the next round of the intermediate football championship was made between the two games in O’Moore Park this evening.
The big clash will be that of neighbours Mountmellick Gaels and The Rock in one quarter-final. Portlaoise and Timahoe will meet in the other quarter-final.
Those games will take place in two weeks time while the semi-finals will be three weeks later. Courtwood and Rosenallis have already advanced to that.
Meanwhile, Barrowhouse and St Joseph’s will contest the intermediate relegation playoff after losing their opening two games.
