Chris Conway and Damien Carter join us to review the weekend action
It was a disappointing weekend for Laois GAA as both the county footballers and hurlers were defeated in the National League campaigns.
The hurlers were beaten by Dublin on a scoreline of 0-30 to 1-19 on Saturday evening while the footballers went down to Clare by 1-16 to 0-12 in Ennis on Sunday.

Plus, the lads discuss the proposed Laois GAA club calendar - as well as trying to figure out how long Chris Conway has actually been playing adult club football for!
