Since club GAA got the green light last month, Laois GAA have been getting through their club leagues at a fair pace.
All divisions, with the exception of Division 5 of the hurling league, are down to semi final stage and some are even down to finals.
In football, the top division in football came to a conclusion last night following Portarlington’s big win over O’Dempsey’s.
That sent them into a semi final against St Joseph’s while Portlaoise will play Graiguecullen in the other.
The Division 1A relegation semi finals will see Ballyroan-Abbey take on O’Dempsey’s and Courtwood face Ballylinan.
While Division 1B saw Killeshin and The Heath top their respective groups where they will face Emo and Arles-Killeen respectively in the semi finals.
Division 1B relegation semi finals see Stradbally take on Portlaoise’s second team and Arles-Kilcruise square up against the team who replaced them at senior this year – Clonaslee.
Park-Ratheniska, who have won every game played in 2021 thus far, will look to continue that in the Division 2 semi final against Mountmellick with Rosenallis facing Timahoe in the other.
Relegation from that divisions sees the second strings of St Joseph’s and O’Dempsey’s go head to head in one semi final with Crettyard taking on Portarlington’s second team in the other.
Divisions 3A, 3B and 4 have all now reached league final and relegation final stage.
Ballyfin will face Killeshin’s second team in the Division 3A final while Kilcavan and Graiguecullen will meet in the relegation decider.
