In hurling, Kieran Fitzpatrick from The Harps, a former Laois senior hurler, has seen a transfer to London go through.

Finally, TJ Lalor from Ballinakill had a busy few weeks recently, as he transferred back to Ballinakill from London on April 19, played in their Division 1 game against Portlaoise, and then moved to Boston on April 30, transferring to the Tipperary club.
