What has Laois’s form been like this season?

Laetitia Lyons Delaney’s side have had a exquisite season – only losing one competitive game.

In the Leinster series, which is run seperately to the All-Ireland competition, they defeated Meath in the Leinster semi-final, before seeing off Carlow in the grand finale.

In the All-Ireland ‘B’ series, they were in group two, along with; Waterford, Derry, Armagh and Meath.

The U16 camogs managed to get nine points from their outings, with wins over Derry, Meath and Armagh. Waterford just halted their clean sweep.

With that, they came second the group and were paired off against the top side in group A for the final – Limerick.

What has Limerick’s form been like this season?

Limerick have topped their group to meet Laois in this semi-final. Other teams in the group included; Carlow, Kildare, Offaly, Westmeath and Down.

There will be added rivalry in this game as Laois overcame Limerick in the minor All-Ireland final, which included sets of players from both sides.

Who is in the other semi-final?

Table toppers Waterford are playing Carlow in St Lachtains GAA in Freshford at 2.30pm.

Where can you follow the action?

We will be at the game providing a full report after the final whistle, while Laois camogie will be giving updates on their Facebook page.
