Don't forget we could get Galway potentially in the final as well Zooming Around.

Cheddar Plunkett and the Laois hurlers have a busy schedule in Division IB of the National hurling league with trips to Wexford, Kilkenny and Antrim while also playing host to Clare and Dublin in MW Hire O'Moore Park.

They will start the league away to their championship opponents, Wexford on Sunday May 9 before hosting Dublin a week later in Portlaoise.

They will have two home games in a row ads Clare are welcomed to the Midlands on May 23 before two away trips to Kilkenny and Antrim before the curtain comes down on the league campaign.

The full list of league fixtures for the Laois footballers is as follows;

National Hurling League Division 1B
Round 1 – Wexford v Laois Sunday May 9 (Wexford Park) 1.45pm
Round 2 – Laois v Dublin Saturday May 15 (O’Moore Park) 5pm
Round 3 – Laois v Clare Sunday May 23 (O’Moore Park) 3pm
Round 4 – Kilkenny v Laois Sunday June 6 (Nowlan Park) 1.45pm
Round 5 – Antrim v Laois Saturday June 12 (Belfast) 3pm.
Winners are not those who never fail, but those who never quit!

Competitive against Wexford and then get Clare in the qualifiers is the best we can hope for

Correct and another rattle at Tipp after that.

Will Limerick give us a game in the All Ireland Final?

There's no reason not to be optimistic. Clare hammered Wexford last year and we'd have beaten Clare if we had another minute or if the ref had applied the advantage rule properly.

Where abouts in Belfast will the Antrim game be?

All going well there might be a chance of actually going to that game.

Clare were well in control when it was 15 v 15

And we didn’t need the ref to beat them when it 15 v 14,we had the opportunity to put them away long before the final whistle and didn’t take it.

Of all the Munster teams we could be potentially facing in a Qualifier,I’d looking for Clare again though

Corrigan Park, I believe.

Any of you know how training is going and the likely team for the weekend?

Very little time really between the return to training and opening round of league games for Cheddar to put his stamp on things. I just hope Laois can retain their current league and championship status for next year as that will afford him requisite time and a platform to develop things and hopefully continue the upward trajectory Laois hurling has been on in recent years.

I had a listen to the Laois Today interview with Cheddar and it's great to hear that plenty of club hurlers are looking to get involved with the county. He hasn't omitted anyone from last years panel and is welcoming in new hurlers. Hopefully the good vibes around the hurlers continues with a few good performances in the league. As Cheddar pointed out, last campaign we only beat Carlow so work needs to be done.

Has the team been named? I can every other team but not the Laois one.

Harsh scoreline in the end, Laois worked hard throughout but just lacked that bit of quality in the final third. Lots to work on and the league not made any easier with Antrims win over Clare.
