Laois Connects Activity Fest 2019

Laois Connects Activity Fest 2019

We received a great turnout for Laois Connects Activity Fest with 232 participants. This event was held in the Brigidine convent with the support of Mountrath Community Forum, Mountrath Community SchoolPortlaoise Combat Academy Freestyle Wrestling & Moez & Susanna Toumi Activator Poles, it was a fantastic morning and wonderful to see the Convent reinvigorated again.


We had 5th year students from Mountrath community school assisting us to make this Activity Fest for the older adults a very enjoyable day.


The chapel within the convent, Maureen Culleton and the Sing for Joy choir preformed to a larger audience than normal.


The Portlaoise Men’s Shed Portarlington Men’s Shed were showcasing Scooch which went down a really treat with everyone that tried this new game.

Maureen Culleton & The Sing for Joy Choir enjoyed the beautiful little chapel within the Convent in Mountrath.

The coming together of the groups leads to the all-important social aspect of our events with freshly cut sandwiches from Phelan’s Catering Service along with the cup of tea and the chat.


The overall feedback from the groups was exceptionally positive and a real appetite for more days out they enjoyed the new venue and getting to try new activities.
