45 players nominated for LaoisToday premier intermediate club hurling team of the year

Finalists The Harps and Portlaoise lead the way in our list of nominations for our 2020 Laois premier intermediate club hurling team of the year.

While the championship has yet to be completed, we have selected 45 nominations from the games that were played in 2020, including the group stages, semi-finals and relegation final.

Portlaoise and The Harps have eight players each while semi-finalists Camross and Slieve Bloom have six each.

Ballyfin and Clonaslee have five each, Colt-Shanahoe have four and the relegated Mountrath have three.

The Laois final was due to be played last October but the GAA cancelled all club activity on the Monday before Portlaoise and The Harps were fixed to play.

It is hoped that the 2020 final will be played in June this year before the start of the 2021 championship, however, there is no definite timeline on when the intercounty game will return or if club or county will go first.

You can check out our full list of nominations below – and we will be whittling that down to 15 and unveiling our team of the year selection on Monday.
