One of the king pins of Laois hurling will split down the middle on St Stephens Day.

Rathdowney-Errill are best know for their exploits on the hurling field but the club is set to divide on Monday December 26 as Rathdowney do battle with Errill for the Laois Junior C Football crown.

Rathdowney have home advantage for the game which throws in at 2pm at Kelly O'Daly Park.

Apparently, the unlikely day for the fixture suits both sides. It does not clash with the more serious hurling season.

Admission is €5 but all proceeds will be donated to the St Vincent De Paul.
