Tickets selling fast as Laois rallies behind Croke Park clash with Tipperary

Much like the quick turnaround after the Joe McDonagh cup win, Laois hurlers haven't long before their next big battle with Tipperary in the Senior Hurling Championship. 

The buzz of Sunday's win is still ringing across the county blending in nicely with the momentum building for the All Ireland Quarter final in Croke Park on Sunday. 

Dedicated Laois supporters queued for over an hour at Laois GAA offices in Portlaoise on Monday to secure their tickets and there was huge demand again on Tuesday as the county rallies behind the hurlers.

Laois GAA sent out an update to say there are limited tickets left of their allocation. They asked people to go to the office in person for tickets as the phone lines were 'extremely busy'.

Tickets are still available online through the GAA website but the website crashed for a time on Monday with so many people looking for tickets to upcoming matches.
