PROFILED: The Laois minor camogie panel vying for All-Ireland glory

This weekend sees the Laois minor camogie team travel to Nenagh to take on Limerick in the All-Ireland ‘B’ final.

Robert Jones’s side have had an immense run of form bringing them into the final – playing four competitive matches and winning all of them.

They played three games in group one, winning all three to top the group and earn themselves in a spot in the semi-final against the second place group two side, Derry.

One of these group-stage games was with fellow All-Ireland finalists Limerick, where Laois eeked out a victory over now-final competitors Limerick.

Laois’s wins over Meath and Kildare saw them emerge top of the leaderboard and through to the championship semi-final.

In the semi-final, they defeated Derry by 12 points to emerge as All-Ireland finalists.

Before the final, we have profiled each of the young women lining out in the blue and white this weekend.

Alongside Jones on the management team are; Pat Collier, Ivan Byrne and Rachael Dunican. Stephanie English is the side’s physio.

The All-Ireland minor ‘B’ final takes place in MacDonagh Park, Nenagh, Tipperary, this Saturday April 27 at 1pm.
