UPDATED: There really are some classics in the Laois GAA club player nicknames

Laois GAA is full of wonderful nicknames and here is an updated list of them
Nicknames

We released our Laois GAA club player nicknames a week ago and they proved to be extremely popular.

People fell in love with the likes of Eggy, Jungle Joe and Bronson as names that have been roared all over GAA fields throughout the county were collated in the one place for the first time.

We did, however, acknowledge that we would almost certainly leave out some gems and we asked you, our readers, to contact us with those.

And you certainly delivered. So now, we bring you the updated list.

As before, if we left anyone out be sure to get in touch with us and let us know!
