This evening Meath take on Louth. Louth will be all out to respond to their Minors making the Leinster Final on Sunday week, while Meath will be all out to keep a 100% record in the tournament.
Tomorrow (Saturday) Laois take on Longford. Laois were impressive with their win over Louth, while Longford will be all out to recover from their loss to Meath.
