Talking Sport Podcast: Leinster championship draws and Matthew Whelan interview

We’re back with the latest instalment of the LaoisToday Talking Sport Podcast.

Host Alan Hartnett is in the hot seat once again and he is joined by his colleague Steven Miller.

The pair take a look at the Leinster football and hurling championship draws which were made early on Tuesday morning.

The Laois footballers have been drawn to play Westmeath in this year’s Leinster championship.

It will be the third time in four years for the counties to meet at the quarter-final stage with Laois winning the 2018 and 2019 clashes.

The semi-final draw will only be held after the quarter-finals in the summer.

The football championship will again be straight knockout this year with no qualifiers for the teams beaten in their provinces.

While in hurling, Laois will play Wexford in this year’s Leinster championship quarter-final.

Should Laois win, they will meet Kilkennyin the semi-final. The winners of Dublin-Antrim will meet Galway in the semi-final.

This week’s interview features Laois’s longest serving and leading appearance holder for the hurlers – Matthew Whelan.

The Borris-Kilcotton man speaks about his decision to commit for a 15th year, the return of Cheddar, hopes for the season and ideal club structure.
