Rathdowney-Errill steamrolled St Rynagh’s in Portlaoise to set up a Leinster Club SHC semi-final meeting with St Mullin's.

The Laois champions led 0-9 to 0-6 at interval but went into overdrive on the restart to crush the Offaly champions with goals from Mark Kavanagh (penalty), James Ryan and a Ross King brace.

The opening half was a stop-start affair dominated by the free-taking of Kavanagh and Aiden Treacy.

Few would have predicted the whitewash which followed, Rathdowney-Errill assuming control of the game when Ross King fired in a brilliant goal midway through the half.

Mark Kavanagh followed it up with a clinical penalty, and St Rynagh’s race was run.
