Laois senior hurling team has been named for Sunday’s clash with Tipperary.

The Laois senior hurlers are back in Croke Park for the second time in three weeks.

And ahead of that game, manager Eddie Brennan has named an unchanged team from the one that started against Dublin last week.

Donnacha Hartnett remains out with a broken thumb but other than that the Kilkenny native has a full team to choose from.

This All-Ireland Quarter final is the third game that will be held in Croke Park on the day.

The first is a minor clash between Kilkenny and Galway with then Kilkenny facing Cork in the first of the quarter finals at 2pm.

Then it is the turn of Laois and Tipperary at 4pm in the third game of the day.

Laois have been on an incredible journey over the last few weeks as they defeated Westmeath in the Joe McDonagh Cup final in Croke Park two weeks ago.

Then last weekend, they did the unthinkable and knocked out a Dublin team who had previously eliminated last year’s defeated All-Ireland finalists Galway.

LAOIS: Enda Rowland (St Lazerian’s Abbeyleix); Lee Cleere (Clough-Ballacolla), Matthew Whelan (Borris-Kilcotton), Joe Phelan (Camross); Jack Kelly (Rathdowney-Errill) Ryan Mullaney (Castletown), Padraig Delaney (The Harps); John Lennon (Rosenallis), Paddy Purcell (Rathdowney-Errill); Aaron Dunphy (Borris-Kilcotton), Mark Kavanagh (Rathdowney-Errill), Eanna Lyons (Ballyfin); Willie Dunphy (Clough-Ballacolla), Charles Dwyer (Ballinakill), Ross King (Rathdowney-Errill).

We will be there to bring you all the action as it happens in Croke Park at 4pm on Sunday.
