WATCH: Laois hurlers, supporters and kids make brilliant appearance on RTE News

We can’t get enough of the Laois hurlers at the moment – and neither can the national media it seems.

Ciaran Mulloolly and the RTE Six One News cameras were in Laois this afternoon where they met the players and supporters.

They travelled to Castletown for day one of their Cul Camp where several Laois players were also in attendance.

Castletown natives Conor Phelan and Ryan Mullaney, John Lennon, Stephen Bergin, Ross King and captain Paddy Purcell all gave interviews over the two minute piece.

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

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.

They’ll play Tipperary in Croke Park next Sunday at 4pm as part of a double header with the other quarter-final between Cork and Kilkenny.
