Seamus Flanagan and David Dempsey climb above Lee Cleere of Laois during the league quarter final win
LIMERICK booked a place in a fourth successive Allianz Hurling League semi final with 17-points to spare over Laois.
And, the March 23/24 semi final was secured with an experimental side containing just six of the All-Ireland final team among the 20 players used in the 2-22 to 0-11 win in Portlaoise.
Limerick now have to wait until next weekend for confirmation of their semi final opponents, but John Kiely's side will be bidding to reach a first final since 2006.
This quarter final saw 10 different players on the scoresheet for the men in green.
