The Thursday night Laois GAA action is becoming a bit of a thing – and it delivered in style again this week with three big football championships down for decision.
And all three produced plenty to talk about.
Rank outsiders Clonaslee-St Manman’s got the better of Ballylinan to book their place in Round 3 of the Laois SFC and send Ballylinan to a relegation playoff while in the intermediate championship Park-Ratheniska and Timahoe advanced.
Park-Ratheniska, who only won the 2020 junior final back in June, were hugely impressive 3-16 to 0-10 winners over last year’s intermediate finalists Crettyard.
It’s a result that sends Park-Ratheniska to a semi-final in four weeks time.
The other intermediate game saw Timahoe beat The Rock thanks to a last-minute Brendan Quigley goal. Timahoe now go forward to a quarter-final while The Rock must play in the relegation final.
In our latest Talking Sport Podcast, we look back at all three games as well as picking our man of the match from each.
We also discuss the ‘feedback’ that comes with getting predictions wrong! Please, Clonaslee, go easy on us!!
