Laois have named an unchanged side from that which beat Antrim for Sunday’s Leinster SHC quarter-final against Carlow at O’Moore Park.

However, coach Seamus Plunkett has made some positional switches that sees Joe Fitzpatrick move from No 6 to midfield, with Matthew Wilson going in the opposite direction.

Willie Hyland takes over the No 12 berth and Brian Dunne reverts to the full-forward line. 

Laois had a well merited six-point win over the Saffrons and victory over John Meyler’s side at the weekend will set up a date with Galway in the provincial last four on 23 June.

Laois: E Reilly; B Stapleton, B Campion, J A Delaney; C Healy, M Whelan, G Burke; J Fitzpatrick, J Walsh; S Maher, Z Keenan, W Hyland; J Brophy, T Fitzgerald, B Dunne.
