A LOOK BACK TO THE 1993 CHAMPIONSHIP

1993 was an excellent year for Laois. In the championship their first meeting was against Dublin in Stradbally on the hottest day of the year. Laois led at half-time by 3-06 to Dublin's 1-01 The full-time score was Laois 3-12 Dublin 1-07. Next came the Leinster Final, a repeat of 1992's, Laois against Westmeath in Tullamore. Again Laois gave a great display and ran out easy winners by 3-10 to Westmeath's 1-9. For the All-Ireland semi-final they travelled to Ballina to meet Mayo. On a very wet day Laois had a great first-half and led by 0-9 to Mayo's 0-3. In the second-half Mayo came back very strongly and scored 1-04 to Laois' 0-01 The game ended level and went to extra time. At the end of this extra period they still ended level, Mayo 1-10 Laois 0-13. The replay was held in Stradbally and on this occasion Laois proved too strong for the Mayo girls. Final score Laois 3-16 Mayo 2-05. Laois then came up against Munster champions Kerry in the Final on October 10th 1993. This was Laois' fourth final in a row having previously lost to both Waterford and Kerry. The game was refereed by John Flanagan of Manchester. Laois were not to come out winners however on a scoreline of Kerry 4-08 Laois 2-06.
