The 2017 LaoisToday Annual was officially launched on Friday night to a full house in the Midlands Park Hotel.
At 160 pages, it is jam-packed with some of the top stories from around Laois in 2017 – a mixture of interviews, features, columns, opinion pieces and light-hearted stories. It also includes the full Laois GAA record of county finals from the year finished.
As well as pieces from LaoisToday team members Steven Miller, Alan Hartnett, David Power, Julie Anne Miller and Siun Lennon, there are also columns from the likes of John Whelan, Pat Critchley, Noel Garvan, Donal Miller, Colm Fingleton, Mark Doheny, Brid Keegan, Dan Keane and Isabel Dwyer.
There is also a selection of quality images from Julie Anne Miller from this year and a number of quality archive photos from Alf Harvey’s collections.
Priced at €20, it has been carefully designed by Mike McCarthy in Creactive Studios in Mountmellick and printed by Quality Printers in Portlaoise and will make for an ideal Christmas present.
It is available from a number of shops around the county as well as from the LaoisToday offices in the Portlaoise Enterprise Centre in the Clonminam Business Park in Portlaoise.
The full list of stockists is listed below. If you own a shop and would like to make an order, please contact us on 057 8670722 or 085 7180700.
