Fixture details announced as football replay leads to schedule change

A midweek replay, a couple of weekend hurling double headers in O’Moore Park and a Monday night semi-final are among this week’s Laois GAA fixtures.

The involvement of Ballyfin in Wednesday night’s Laois SFC semi-final replay against Killeshin and their presence in the SHC ‘A’ semi-finals has meant that the fixtures have had to be re-calibrated to take into account their heavy schedule and the current state of the under-pressure O’Moore Park pitch.

All main games are currently scheduled for O’Moore Park with the senior football replay going ahead there on Wednesday night.

Ballyfin have been granted a reprieve with their hurling fixture against The Harps which has been put back to next Monday night.

The other Senior ‘A’ semi-final between Colt and Rosenallis goes ahead on Saturday at 7pm and will be preceded by the minor final between The Harps and Abbeyleix Gaels.

Sunday sees O’Moore Park host a double header of senior hurling semi-finals with Borris-Kilcotton meeting Clough-Ballacolla in the curtain raiser and champions Camross taking on Rathdowney-Errill in the second game in what is a repeat of last year’s controversial final.

Should Ballyfin get over Killeshin, it’ll mean that their Senior ‘A’ hurling semi-final will be played just six days before the football final.
