Laois have announced that they're pulling out of all adult camogie competitions in 2020 due to the "unavailability of players". 

In a statement issued by the Laois Camogie Executive on Facebook, it was confirmed that the county would not be entering a team in the National League, Leinster and All-Ireland intermediate championships. 

The executive said there weren't enough players players to form a panel, thanking those that did commit, as well manager Kieran Delaney and his backroom staff for their "time, commitment and professionalism." 

Delaney was recently appointed to the role in November 2019, succeeding Offaly man Donal Franks. 

"Following an Executive Meeting held on Monday 6th January 2020 it is with great regret that Laois Camogie are not in a position to field an Intermediate Team for the 2020 competitions due to unavailability of players.

"Laois Camogie would sincerely like to thank Kieran Delaney and his management team for their time, commitment and professionalism to date.

"Laois Camogie would also like to acknowledge the players who did commit but unfortunately there wasn't enough to form a panel."

The news comes off the back of a reasonable year for Laois camogie as they narrowly missed out on a place in the Intermediate semi-finals, reached the semi-finals of the Leinster senior championship and retained their place in Division 2 of the National League.
