Draw made for Laois footballers 2020 O'Byrne Cup campaign

For the second year in-a-row, the pre-season O'Byrne Cup competition is set to kick-off before Christmas before the semi-final line-up is completed in early January. 

Offaly are in a group with Laois and Wexford and they will also play Louth in the crossover element of the tournament.

This year's competition sees the 11 participating counties have been split into three groups, two groups of three and one group of four - while the five-in-a-row All-Ireland champions Dublin have once again received a bye to the semi-final stage.
