The Laois senior hurling team for this Sunday’s Leinster SHC Quarter-Final clash with Carlow has been named.

Manager Seamas Plunkett has kept faith with the same 15 which started the win over Antrim. Cahir Healy has been listed at wing-back, but could yet switch with Joe Fitzpatrick, who is again named at midfield. Gearoid Burke, who was struggling with illness despite starting the last day, retains his place at left-half-back.

The same six forward have also been named, although Willie Hyland may again be tried at full-forward having started with game against Antrim at the edge of the square.
