All of this week’s Laois GAA fixtures as juvenile championships commence

The GAA is back and the first full week of fixtures is ahead of us.

The action begins primarily at juvenile level as the U-13, U-15 and U-17 championships in hurling and football get underway this week.

This weekend was to see the Kelly Cup final take place but that is now up in the air.

Killeshin were to face Ballylinan in the semi final last weekend but the club has suspended all activities after they played a challenge match against a Carlow club who subsequently had a player who contracted Coronavirus.

Killeshin’s junior team played Old Leighlin from Carlow in a practice game on Monday evening (July 13) with one of the Old Leighlin players subsequently testing positive for Covid-19.

As some of the Killeshing players are deemed close contacts, they must be tested for the virus – and the club is out of action until July 27.
