At long last, the people of Laois will get to see their hurling team LIVE on TV.

The GAA has confirmed that they will show Sunday’s All-Ireland Hurling quarter final between Laois and Tipperay on RTE 2.

Eddie Brennan’s charges will be on TV at 4pm on Sunday and form part of a Croke Park double header with the other quarter final which is between Cork and Kilkenny.

The Laois hurlers sent Dublin crashing out of this year’s All Ireland championship thanks to a thrilling win.

In a heroic performance, Laois led from start to finish and defied their massive outsiders tag.

In what may be deemed as the biggest upset to hurling this year, Twitter at home and abroad went wild as the final result came in.

Laois were outstanding – as they recorded arguably the county’s biggest hurling win since beating Wexford in the Leinster hurling semi-final in 1985.

The mighty Buff Egan was even there to witness it and he was then taken for dinner, drinks and some celebratory golf by Ross King and Jack Kelly.

What it all means is that Laois are into the All Ireland quarter-finals for the first time in 40 years.

And we can’t wait!
