Laois minor hurling team named for Kildare clash

Laois minor hurling boss Enda Lyons has named his side to face Kildare in Round 2 of the Leinster minor hurling championship.

And the manager has made one change to the team that started in the win over Westmeath last weekend.

Borris-Kilcotton wing back Noah Quinlan is away on a school tour with Mountrath CS and his spot on the team goes to

LAOIS: Finnan Cuddy (Trumera); Ned Fitzpatrick (St Lazerian’s Abbeyleix), Danny Brennan (Park-Ratheniska-Timahoe), Ian Shanahan (Ballinakill); Cian Conroy (Clonaslee St Manman’s), Fionan Mahony (St Lazerian’s Abbeyleix), Brian Bredin (Mountrath); Tomas Keyes (Camross), Tadhg Cuddy (Castletown); James Duggan (The Harps), David Dooley (Rosenallis), Dan Delaney (Camross); Cathal O’Shaughnessy (Ballinakill), DJ Callaghan (Clonaslee), Adam Kirwan (Trumera).

Laois’s are in Tier 2 of the Leinster championship this year alonside Westmeath, Antrim and Kildare.

Laois began their campaign with a comfortable 2-21 to 0-7 win over Westmeath in O’Moore Park.

Wing forward Dan Delaney chipped in with 1-2 on the day and he was subsequently named Minor hurler of the week. 

If Laois manage to top Tier 2, they go straight into Round 2 of the Leinster championship and a win in this game would certainly help them.

We will have a full match report and also a live blog on the day.
