Laois captain Stephen Attride is looking forward to lining out for Killeshin in their first-ever county SFC final on Sunday.

Killeshin beat Ballyfin after a replay in the semi-final, but Attride admits improvement will be needed if they're to stop Portlaoise's bid for a three-in-a-row of Jack Delaney Cups at O'Moore Park.

“I think a performance like today will not be good enough to challenge Portlaoise so we are going to have to sit down and analyse that and hopefully come up with a plan,” he told Midlands 103. 

“A final is only a final. It’s no good if we don’t go on and win it.

“We have a strong panel. We made two changes from the last day and brought on five or six subs so this year more than ever we have a strong panel. It’s just bringing the whole thing on this year.

“More numbers start to show up at training and people in the community are showing more interest so we are on the crest of a wave at the minute. Hopefully we can carry it through to the county final."
