Billy Sheehan had named a much changed team ahead of the news.
The Laois footballers will have to wait until the weekend to run off their dead-rubber fixture with Carlow in the O'Byrne Cup.
Neither side can progress to the semi final of the competition after the first two rounds.
They were due to meet in Stradbally this evening before the game was postponed due to weather conditions.
The details around the rescheduled contest will be announced soon.
