Draws made for Round 2 of Laois Senior and Intermediate football championships

Championship Draw

The draws have been made for Round 2 of the Laois Senior and Intermediate football championships.

The draws for the two competitions were held in County Board offices this morning.

There is still one Round 1 game to be played in each competition but the draw was made regardless.

The Senior clash between St Joseph’s and Ballylinan plus the IFC encounter between Timahoe amd Ballyroan-Abbey were both postponed due to a bereavement.

Whoever wins in the Round 2 Winner’s Section of the Senior football championship will progress to the quarter finals with the losers moving to Round 3.

The winners of Round 2 in the Loser’s Section will progress to Round 3 while the losers will contest relegation semi finals.

In Intermediate, the winners of Round 2 Winner’s Section will progress to the semi finals with the defeated sides going to the quarter finals.
