LAOIS BOOKED THEIR place in the Leinster Hurling Championship quarter-finals with a dramatic win over already qualified Westmeath at O’Moore Park.

Trailing by six points heading into the final stages, the hosts were heading for elimination but staged a late comeback to win by three points and set-up a meeting with Offaly in the last eight.

Charles Dwyer scored the crucial goal for Laois after Brendan Murtagh had earlier struck to put the visitors, who will now face Wexford, in control of the contest.

The quarter-finals take place on 7 June.

In today’s other Round 3 clash, Carlow were comfortable winners over Antrim at Netwatch Cullen Park as both sides had two players sent-off.
