The Laois hurlers bowed out of the league last night after they were defeated in the quarter final by Limerick.
This was the only knock-out game to take place this weekend as a number of group games, that were called off last weekend, took place today.
The results of those games would have a direct impact on the new structure of the league for 2020.
Division 1A and 1B are going to be merged together and then split into two groups – Group A and Group B.
Following today’s games, just one things has yet to be decided – and that is the positioning of Cork and Kilkenny who meet next week in a Division 1A relegation play-off (strange thing to have really when neither will be relegated regardless).
Offaly will play in Division 2A next year after they lost to Carlow today in the Division 1B relegation playoff while Wesmeath have been promoted after beating Kerry in the Division 2A final.
So, Laois find themselves in Group B of Division 1 alongside Wexford, Clare, Dublin, Carlow and the loser of Kilkenny and Cork.
And Group A will be comprised of Limerick, Tipperary, Waterford, Galway, Westmeath and the winner of Kilkenny and Cork.
Certainly some exciting games ahead.
