Leinster club IHC: Laois manager and selector to face off in final

November 17, 2018

New Laois selector Tommy Fitzgerald and manager Eddie Brennan will be in opposition for the Leinster club IHC final.

New Laois hurling manager Eddie Brennan will go up against his selector Tommy Fitzgerald in the Leinster club IHC final on December 1.

Forty-year-old Brennan scored 1-1 from play for Graigue-Ballycallan in their 2-22 to 1-12 provincial semi-final over St Mogue's, Fethard today, while Fitzgerald hit 1-2 for Portlaoise in their 3-12 to 2-11 defeat of Offaly's Ballinamere in the other last four-tie.

Brennan and Sean Ryan netted in as many minutes in a game that saw the Kilkenny and Wexford champions both finish with 14 men.

At O'Moore Park, goals from Cian Taylor, Fitzgerald and Cathal Duggan helped Portlaoise to victory over a Ballinamere side for whom Brian Duignan - son of former Offaly star Michael - bagged 1-6.

The final has been fixed for Nowlan Park.
