To be so close to rock bottom at the start of the year to getting to a Leinster final and a game away from super 8’s, what a year for laois ?⚪️

So close yet so far. Win or lose it’s been an incredible season from Laois. To come from close to rock bottom to a Leinster final and game away from the super 8’s is massive. Hats off to John Surgrue and all players. Onwards and upwards #LaoisLaoisLaois ?⚪️

Tributes poured out to Laois after a great year of football, may there be many more.
Laois goal keeper Graham Brody on top of 6 excellent saves in the game just gave a pair of gloves to a little Monaghan supporter. Class act. #GAA.

Graham Brody is no stranger to Twitter praise, this time for being sound after the match.

Laois people were as passionate as ever at the prospect of football coming home.
When people screenshot a Snapchat that I sent, but don’t respond at all. Using me for laughs but not for my company. #KeepYourHeadHighButYourMiddlsFingerHigher

Rise above the haters.
You’d come across the most bizarre requirements when you’re searching for accommodation in Dublin pic.twitter.com/M28StxMMB0

Laois students couldn’t be up to the renting requirements these days.
Ever since starting in the local pub, I get an awful lot more waves from old men in tractors on the road, is this what playing gaa is like

Rural Ireland, you’re nobody until you can pull a pint.
Here, there is absolutely NO need for the pace at which Lidl staff scan groceries..

Seriously Lidl, will you give us a minute.
Why do I counsel random strangers EVERYTIME I go out
