This weekend sees the Laois senior hurling team take on All-Ireland champions Limerick in the Allianz division one league quarter-final.

The teams have been made, the prices set and we’re just waiting for the sliotar to be thrown-in.

Three changes have been made to the side which was narrowly defeated by Dublin in the final Division 1B game last weekend.

Willie Dunphy, who came off with a hamstring injury in the Dublin match, is not named as starting on Eddie Brennan’s side.

The Laois team lines out as follows: Enda Rowland (St Lazerian’s Abbeyleix); Joe Phelan (Camross), Matthew Whelan (Borris-Kilcotton), Donnacha Hartnett (Mountmellick); Lee Cleere (Clough-Ballacolla), Ryan Mullaney (Castletown), Padraig Delaney (The Harps); Jack Kelly (Rathdowney-Errill), Sean Downey (Ballinakill); Aaron Dunphy (Borris-Kilcotton), Mark Kavanagh (Rathdowney-Erill), Paddy Purcell (Rathdowney-Errill); John Lennon (Rosenallis), Neil Foyle (Borris-Kilcotton) Stephen Bergin (Clough-Ballacolla)

Meanwhile, just six of the starting All-Ireland winning side have been selected for this upcoming encounter.

These are defenders Dan Morrissey, Diarmaid Byrnes and captain Declan Hannon, midfielder Darragh O’Donovan and forwards Gearoid Hegarty and Seamus Flanagan.

Laois GAA have also revealed that the ticket prices for the game on Saturday night will remain unchanged.

Usually, ticket prices for league knock-out games would increase but Laois GAA chairman Peter O’Neill has confirmed this won’t happen.

Adult Pre-purchase tickets are €15, Adult Match Day tickets are €20 while all U-16s go free.
