Coach Niall Corcoran was already looking ahead to next Sunday's All-Ireland SHC quarter-final against Tipperary at Croke Park after Laois' sensational victory over Dublin yesterday.

The Galway native and former Dublin hurler told the Irish Examiner: “Tipperary now, that is going to be another huge challenge.

"We’ll have to try to get our feet back on the ground. You’re looking at a squad who have huge confidence after today. We’ve a very young squad and why not give it a go? We’ll be underdogs again, but why not give it a go?

“They showed that they can hurl their way out of trouble and hurling is what it’s all about. They thought their way out of trouble and that’s everything we’ve worked on since last October. These are the games you want. The Joe McDonagh was great, but these are the games you want to be playing, in Croke Park. That’s what the group wants.”
