Portlaoise ‘Blast from the Past’
It has been a great last twelve months for the hurling section of Portlaoise GAA Club. Not only has the club’s Senior side gotten back to the ‘top table’ of Laois club hurling (2015 Senior B final- Portlaoise 1-14 Clonaslee St Mammans 1-11) but the U-21 hurlers of ‘The Town’ spanned a lengthy gap by winning the U-21 Championship. So it’s fitting our ‘Blast from the Past’ in this edition is the club’s victorious 1988 U-21 side.
