Brought to you in association with Oxley Electrical and Security LtdGood evening and welcome to our latest Live Blog of the local championship action.This evening we’re in O’Moore Park once again – for the third day running no less – for the first double header of the championship season.This evening’s opening game is between Clonaslee and Trumera in the opening round of the Laois SHC ‘A’ while local rivals Abbeyleix and Ballinakill do battle at 7.30 in the SHC.Clonaslee, who were finalists in this grade in 2015, were well beaten at the quarter-final stage last year by The Harps while Trumera won the third tier Laois intermediate title for the second time in three years.Ballinakill and Abbeyleix are two teams that regularly fancy a shot at the big guns in the senior championship.Abbeyleix beat Camross in Round 2 last year before losing to Clough-Ballacolla in the semi-final while Ballinakill brought eventual champions Borris-Kilcotton to a replay in the 2016 semi-final.With three teams to make it out of the group, the winners of both games will put themselves in a good place. The top team in each group go through to the semi-final with second and third going through to the quarters.The bottom team in each group will play off to see who is relegated.So, while it’s not knockout, it is an important evening.And as well as the two games in O’Moore Park we’ll also be providing updates from the IHC double header in Mountrath where Camross take on Park-Ratheniska/Timahoe at 6pm and Borris-Kilcotton meet Rathdowney-Errill at 7.30pm.Stay with us for updates throughout the evening. SEE ALSO – As the hurling championship gets near, we’ve updated our club rankings Rugby Facebook Five Laois monuments to receive almost €200,000 in government funding Charlie Flanagan on Electric Picnic: ‘I’d ask organisers to consult with community leaders’last_img
