Interesting ties ahead for future Laois champions following Leinster club draws

GAA rules

The draws for the Leinster club football and hurling draws were made recently.

After being postponed due to Covid-19 last year, the provincial championships return this year.

In football, two of the three Laois teams who compete have been drawn at home.

At Senior, the eventual Laois champions have received a bye to the quarter finals where they will be at home to the Westmeath winners.

A triumph there would see them host either the Dublin or Meath champions in the semi finals.

The Laois Intermediate champions, either Park-Ratheniska, Arles-Kilcruise, Mountmellick or Timahoe, will be away to the Carlow champions in Round 1 of that competition.

One of Annanough, The Harps, Kilcavan or Barrowhouse will represent Laois in the Junior championship as second teams of senior clubs are not allowed to compete.

They will be at home to the Carlow champions in Round 1 and should they win that, they’ll host the winners of the Kildare and Wicklow champions in the quarter finals.

In hurling, one of Camross, Clough-Ballacolla, Borris-Kilcotton or Rathdowney-Errill will represent Laois in the Senior championship and begin at home to the Wexford champions in the quarter finals.

Ballyfin, Ballinakill or Portlaoise will be Laois’s representative in the Intermediate championship and they have been drawn away to Westmeath in Round 1.

While, for the same reasons as mentioned above in relation to second teams, Trumera will be Laois’s representative in the Junior hurling competition.

They are set to begin away to the Longford champions in Round 1.

You can check out all of the fixtures below as a winter of action awaits us all.
