Three Laois representatives set to play in Croke Park during the All-Ireland hurling semi-finals

Three Laois representatives will be playing in the hollowed ground of Croke Park this weekend during the All-Ireland hurling semi-finals.

Annie Dunne, Aoife Kirby and Emer Conroy will all be playing at half-time during the All-Ireland semi-finals between Kilkenny and Limerick and Wexford versus Tipperary.

Emer Conroy from The Rock NS will be taking to the national stadium on Saturday for the Kilkenny v Limerick game at 6pm.

Meanwhile Derrylamogue NS’s Annie Dunne and Aoife Kirby from Cullohill will be playing at half-time during the Tipperary versus Wexford match on Sunday at 3.30pm.

The three young camogs were selected through the Cumann na mBunscol annual skills competition in May.

Laois Cumann na mBunscol were originally due to only have two players but were given an extra place by Cumann na mBunscol Laighean.

All three fifth class pupils play camogie and hurling outside of school, with Aoife Kirby playing for The Harps, Emer Conroy with O’Moores and Annie Dunne lining out for O’Moores and Rosenallis.

Aoife comes from a Kirby family with great hurling ability, and all three girls have greatly impressed with their own abilities.

Annie Dunne says she hopes she will be togging out in the Wexford colours on Sunday, as she doesn’t want to play for Tipperary because they bet Laois in the All-Ireland quarter-final.

Best of luck to the three girls!
