I Love to Watch You Play!   02/09/2018

We had a super day in Portlaoise GAA yesterday. A big thank you to the officials from Portlaoise who were so generous with their time and allowed us access to their wonderful facilities. 34 teams, over 400 players, played on eight pitches in a supportive and positive environment.

The theme for the day was 'I love to watch you play' as Leinster LGFA called on all supporters to ensure their voices were ones of positivity rather than criticism. 

A special word of congratulations to our young referees and young volunteers who ensured the day ran without a hitch and the ethos of the day was upheld!

A big thank you to our Leinster referees; Des McEnery, Jonathan Murphy, Ciarán Groome and John Bermingham for passing on their words of wisdom to our up and coming referees. It is much appreciated.

A big thank you to Aisling Hubbard, Dónal Fitzpatrick, Joe Fox and Derek Egan for coordinating pitches yesterday and ensuring all went smoothly.

Lastly, a huge thank you to Suzi Doyle who coordinated the entire blitz. It took a huge amount of work behind the scenes and we are so lucky in Leinster to have you working with us!

We look forward to returning to Portlaoise next Saturday as our County U12 teams have their second blitz of the season!

Take a look at the video below which is just a snapshot of some of yesterday's action! Make sure to turn on the sound!
