We might be in the middle of August – and although the monsoon-like rain would make you think otherwise, all Laois GAA games scheduled to go ahead around the county this evening did.
There were wins for Ballyfin and Portlaoise in the Laois SFC while Ballyroan-Abbey and Portarlington will have to do it all over again after drawing in an incident-packed game in O’Moore Park.
Park-Ratheniska and Killeshin drew in the JFC while last year’s beaten finalists O’Dempsey’s had a big win over The Heath.
A doubt hangs over the result of the JFC ‘C’ semi-final where Colt recovered from a seven-point deficit at half time to lead by a point in injury time against Annanough when the match was abandoned by referee Alan O’Connor. Graiguecullen await the winners in the final.
Elsewhere, the re-fixed Laois ACHL Division 2 final between Camross and Borris-Kilcotton was won by Camross on a scoreline of 1-18 to 2-13.
