Up first of the three teams is the Laois minor footballers who will face Kildare in the Leinster championship semi final in O’Moore Park on Friday June 21 at 8pm.

Donncha Phelan’s men reached this stage of the competition last year where they lost out to Meath and they will hope to go one step further this time.

While the Laois U-20 footballers Leinster championship opener against All-Ireland champions Kildare, originally scheduled for June 22, has been moved.
