Team News: Laois Manager Billy Sheehan has named his team for the game this Saturday as follows:
One’s to watch: After an excellent team performance in the great win over Fermanagh last Saturday, there are no shortage of Laois players who stood out!!
Emo duo Sean Greene and Padraig Kirwan were very strong defensively which limited Fermanagh’s attacking threat. Graiguecullen’s Mark Timmons secured GAA.ie’s Tailteann Cup Player Of The Week after a public vote as a result of his fine display against Fermanagh, scoring 1-1 which proved vital in the win. Portarlington’s Robert Piggot and Crettyard’s Evan O’Carroll were also selected on GAA.ie’s Tailteann Cup Team Of The Week.
