The river Barrow flows through Carlow town separating the Laois section, Graigcullen, from the rest of the town. Graigcullen played in the Carlow SFC up to 1925 winning 13 senior titles before switching to Laois and winning 12 senior titles. Laois won 3 Leinster senior titles in a row in the 1930s backboned by Graigcullen and Stradbally players. Graigcullen’s Tommy Murphy, The Boy Wonder, was named at midfield on the GAA’s Team of the Millennium. Full back Mark Timmons is Graigcullen’s representative on the current Laois team (plus Danny O’Reilly who is out injured).
There’s a great buzz around Carlow particularly and also Laois in anticipation of next Sunday’s game. The Graigcullen club are hosting an Up for the Match event in the clubhouse on Saturday night. We used to see similar craic on RTE’s much missed Breaking Ball programme.
Prior to Turlough O’Brien’s Carlow Rising Laois have had the upperhand in recent years winning 3-16 to 0-8 in 2015 and 3-13 to 0-12 in 2013. Carlow’s last Leinster SFC win over Laois was in 1988. In 1995 Laois beat Carlow by one point where a late wide from Laois was incorrectly signalled as a point. This wrong decision was highlighted on The Sunday Game and in the papers and Laois County Board offered Carlow a replay which Laois won.
The reward for the winners of next Sunday’s game may seem dubious – a Leinster Final versus The Dubs – but this does not take away from this game. It’s a local derby, Laois may have won the recent League meetings but Carlow showed their mettle against Kildare. Here’s hoping for a great contest.

That will put a halt to their rising.
Hon Laois!

Carlow would have been better off focusing on Laois than allowing the media blow spoke up their holes. Delighted for that Muppet Poacher.

This "every man back" football is dreadful to watch. There may not be enough highlights to fill the 2 minutes on The Sunday Game tonight.

Laois the better team, but Carlow had a couple of great goal chances that they blew.

Carlow's bigger players didn't really produce, but they'd a few lads at the back who were super.

Hopefully the injury to Laois's Attride isn't as bad as it looked. Super cameo from O'Carroll.

Wasn't it just. Fair play to him after a very tough few days for him. Couldn't have been easy for him.

Laois captain Stephen Attride to miss Leinster final after suffering double-fracture to his skull

Laois captain Stephen Attride is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a double-fracture to his skull in the victory over Carlow at Croke Park yesterday.

The influential defender picked up the nasty injury deep into stoppage time in the 0-12 to 0-8 win as he bravely threw himself on a breaking ball to thwart a Carlow attack.

His head accidentally made contact with the leg of Carlow's Ciarán Moran and was knocked unconscious.

The game was held up for a number of minutes before Attride was taken from the field and transferred to the Mater Hospital where x-rays confirmed the injury.

Horrible injury.
Best of luck to him in his recovery.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Sickening for the poor fella.
About 20 seconds of the scheduled added time left when it happened.

So no more "everyone loves Carlow" it seems.

Their hurlers are a disgrace too.
