Sean Currie helped himself to 3-2 as Dublin eased to an impressive 15-point win over Laois in O'Moore Park, Portlaoise.

A goal inside the opening minute set the tone for a mostly comfortable afternoon for Dublin, as they opened up a big lead in the first quarter of the game.

Currie struck that early goal for the Dubs, and Colin Currie, Johnny McGuirk and Fergal Whitely tacked on points to see them pull ahead. Laois offered only one point in response, from Brian Corby, but Dublin looked to have wrapped up the win in the 22nd minute when Currie got his second goal.

They were 12 points up at that stage, but Laois finally came to life late in the half, prompted by a goal from midfielder Jake Cranny. Ciaran Comerford added a couple of points, and they had thrown themselves a lifeline. Dublin led 2-9 to 1-4 at half-time.

The second half was more evenly contested, for the most part, even though Dublin stretched their lead early on. Ciaran Dowling was central to their purple patch, as he scored three points in almost as many minutes, but Laois had their best spell after that.

Comerford and Mark Kavanagh added scores to get them within seven, but they could not close the gap any further.

Dublin finished strongly, as Sean Currie got his third goal with five minutes left, and an own goal from Laois rounded off the scoring.
