GAA - Laois find out date and venue for relegation clash with Antrim

The Laois team before Sunday's game with Dublin.

The Laois senior hurlers have discovered the date and time for their NHL Division 1B clash with Antrim, as they make the long trip north for the crunch game.

Laois will have to head to Dunloy for the game, which will have a 2pm throw in this Sunday, March 18. The referee has not yet been confirmed, in what will be a winner-takes-all affair, as the loser will be relegated to Division 2A for 2019.

Laois found themselves in this position after failing to build on a a bright start to the NHL, losing their last two games to Offaly and Dublin. Antrim, meanwhile, will come into the game in better form, after a surprise win over Offaly on Sunday.

Extra time and a free-taking shootout will be used, if needed, on the day.
