It turned out we had the benefit of some delicious desserts over the weekend and made over 1000 as well. Proceeds will be used for ongoing costs in running the club with particular focus in getting new jerseys for our Under 8 boys and Under 14 girls teams. Thanks to the team of Elva Kelly, Miriam Lacey Margaret Farrelly Kathleen Crosby and Sarah Dempsey plus the many bakers and purchasers who all helped to make it a great sucess.
Our Under 21's MATTIE JASON ADAM and DAN played against Kildare on Wednesday 20th March but were well beaten on the night. The lads had put in a big effort with the U 21's with David Brennan who was a selector but it was not to be their year. Hopefully they will have better luck next year as theplayers are all underage again.

Combined Club Members Lotto
The Combined Club Members Lotto Draw takes place every Thursday night in Portlaoise. The draw raises funds for the club throughout the year and is the most important continuous fundraiser run by the club as regards raising finances for the weekly running of the club.
Every week the club faces bills for items such as footballs, jerseys, referees, ground maintenance and physio. On top of this there is the loan repayments for the development of Tony Byrne Park and also the Milltown development is about to commence. The development in the club can be seen by everyone and with hurling and football teams from U-8s to two adult teams as well as ladies football. The club is a vibrant organisation that needs everyone to lend a hand. Although not everyone has time to commit to the training of teams and to be part of the various committees, everyone in the parish can play a part in the development and up keep of the club by simply playing the lotto.
We have one of the most successful teams in the recent history of Laois County football and a club and a parish to be proud of. To help drive the club forward with success on and off the pitch, we need the help of everyone.
We have joined together with six other clubs throughout the county to run the draw to ensure the jackpot is a substantial figure every week. It is guaranteed to be 5000 every week.
