Club Hurling

I am hoping to start following club hurling. What are the main club hurling competitions in Laois that are somewhat parallel to the Walsh Cup, NHL, Joe McDonagh Cup, etc. in inter-county hurling? And what months of the year are they played? I’m fairly sure I asked this question, long ago, on Laoistalk and I am definitely sure I forgot the answer. :-[

Thanks!

If you go onto the Laois GAA website you can get the fixture list for the club championships. The leagues are wrapping up and the championships are starting up. The group stages of the senior championship have been moved back to August because of the extended run by the senior hurlers

http://www.laoisgaa.ie/ 

The website is pretty poor for everything else except fixtures IMO. Intermediate championship starts this week I think.

There is really only a long enough league and the championship. League is played from around start of March and just ended on Wednesday. Championship from late August to Middle of October.

Would it be possible to let everyone who couldn't get there know what happened. Things like if they won or not, how they played and what the score was. This is a forum after all and the idea of it is to share information on games in Laois

Laois A won by a point.
Laois B soundly beaten.

Unsure if it was Cork A/B or they had 2 even/regional teams. I've heard 2 conflicting reports from people at the game.

My understanding is Laois A were in the Cup Semi Final v Cork A team which is regional, the cork team in the cup far superior to that in the shield. Conor Counihan and Derek O Connor looking after the Cup team. Laois won 2-10 to 2-09 and played their hearts out and play Kerry in the final. Beaten well in the B but a few people said that was expected as alot of new lads played in that game, Cork have numbers and we struggle numbers wise. Anyway fair play to everyone imvolved there, last year wicklow and offaly bet this team,.improvement under the new lad has been excellent.
