#WATCH - Thrilling Day 2 brings Laois Cumann na mBunscol football finals to a close

The 2017 Laois Cumann na mBunscol football finals came to a close today, with some thrilling action round off the annual event.

The final game of the day, Clough NS v Our Lady's Meadow NS from Durrow, was the only game over the two days to go to extra time, with Clough NS emerging winners. Remarkably, Clough NS trailed by 12 points with 14 minutes to go, but managed to come back and win by a point, 4-9 to 3-11, as Durrow's late effort for a goal (see video above) came up short.
