This weekend marks the final group stage of the Allianz Division 1B.
Laois senior hurlers take on Dublin in Parnell Park, where they hope to stay out of the bottom two and launch themselves into the division 1 quarter-finals.
All final group games of division 1B are taking place today and there are plenty of crunch ties to keep interest up until the very last minute of play.
While Laois take on the Sky Blues in Parnell Park, Galway and third place Waterford are competing for the number one spot on the table.
A key game for Laois eyes will be Carlow versus Offaly in Netwatch Cullen Park at 2pm.
Carlow are on two points – following draws with Laois and Galway – but can go through if they beat Offaly and Laois lose to Dublin.
Offaly, with no wins to date, cannot avoid the playoff or go to the quarter-finals – but a win for them over Carlow would send Laois through.
If Laois finish in fourth position in Division 1B, they will play the top side in Division 1A in the quarter-final.
