Purcell and the Laois hurlers booked their place in the Joe McDonagh Cup final on Saturday.

Laois' league final win over Carlow was the crucial moment in their journey to the Joe McDonagh Cup final, according to their in-form midfielder, Paddy Purcell.

The O'Moore County secured their place in the decider with a round to spare after an impressive 26 point win over Down on Saturday.

Pressure began to mount on Willie Maher's side after they were well beaten by Carlow in Portlaoise midway through the league.

That result and the performance were reversed in the Division 2A final against the same opposition, and since then, Laois have a 100% record in championship action.

Purcell says the work was being done in the background, and they just needed things to click:
