Fixture details and TV coverage confirmed for Laois hurling and football teams next weekend

The Laois hurlers and footballers are both in action next weekend as the 2021 inter-county season continues to gather pace.

The Laois hurlers are first up when they take on Dublin in O’Moore Park on Saturday evening.

That game throws in at 5pm and will be live on the GAA Go platform and can be streamed for €5.

The Laois footballers then make their season debut on Sunday when they travel to Ennis to play Clare in Division 2 South of the National Football League.

That game is at 4pm, also on GAA Go, and is at the later time due to the fact that the Clare hurlers are playing Wexford in Ennis at 12.45pm.

The GAA Go service, which is a joint venture between the GAA and RTÉ, will show games not currently selected for television broadcast across all four divisions of the National Football League, and Divisions 1A and 1B in hurling.

Individual league games can be purchased for €5, or access to all games can be bought for a €25 pass, which is available to buy from Wednesday, May 12.

Meanwhile, two Laois referees have been appointed to games this weekend.

Three-time All Ireland final referee Maurice Deegan will begin his latest season on the inter-county circuit when he takes charge of Cork v Kildare on Saturday. That game is being held in Thurles as Cork have lost home advantage for being caught breaking the Covid training restrictions.

And Seamus Mulhare from The Heath has been appointed to the Division 3 South game between Wicklow and Offaly in Aughrim.
