It was a very busy day with county action in hurling, camogie and football along with a couple of domestic games.
The Laois U-20s, senior hurlers and camogie teams all enjoyed positive results while so too did the Laois Masters teams.
In their first go at Over-40s football, Laois have now won three games on the spin and are closing in on an All-Ireland championship semi final place.
Following an opening round defeat to Dublin, Laois went on to defeat Westmeath and Kildare before today’s win over Mayo.
With games against Clare and Tyrone to come, the Masters are really motoring.
Meanwhile, there was one game of significance on the domestic front as Arles-Killeen and Killeshin met in their re-arranged Division 1B game which had been postponed on Thursday due to a bereavement.
Killeen needed the win to keep pressure on Courtwood and Ballylinan who sit in the promotion places above them and they led 1-10 to 0-6 at half time with Ian Scully scoring the goal.
Scully, Sean O’Shea, Conor Keightley, Brendan O’Shea and Aidan O’Rourke pointed for Killeen while Donie Brennan sealed the deal with their second goal to complete a seven point win over Killeshin which leaves them just one point clear of the drop zone – albeit they have a game on hand over Mountmellick and St Joseph’s who are directly below them.
