Leinster SHC quarter-final: Dublin 2-31 Laois 0-23

DUBLIN are into their first Leinster hurling semi-final since 2016 following a big win over Laois at Croke Park on Saturday night.

In total, the Dubs had 10 different scorers as they picked off a sorry O'Moore side, with Donal Burke racking up a massive 1-16 in a star performance. Éamonn Dillon also impressed when he made his entrance off the bench, scoring 1-1 in the latter stages.

Burke hit 1-9 in the first-half alone as Dublin looked in a hurry to put the game to bed, with the Fianna clubman linking up well with Davy Keogh and Ronan Hayes.

Laois introduced Mark Kavanagh at half-time in an attempt to salvage something from the game, but it was to no avail as he was kept scoreless and Burke & co. continued to wreak havoc at the other end.

Dublin now face the small matter of Kilkenny in the Leinster last four at Croke Park this Saturday.
