This week we saw our stunning Laois Rose do us proud in Tralee, the Portlaoise Panthers playing a blinder in the World Championships and unusual offers for Electric Picnic tickets.
It’s our tweets of the week.
@plaoisepanthers Shauna Dooley leading tonight’s pre game chant! Great win last night , with Israel to come today. Great to be here and has been worth the trip across Europe to watch the 3 girls play @LaoisToday @LaoisNews pic.twitter.com/8fokOcAcHo

The Panthers should be so proud.
General reminder that EP is in Laois. Laois is relevant and not a forgotten county. Thanks, bye.

We believe this would make millions.

What a feeling!
My mam’s friend told me her new nephew was named Lewis and my sleep-deprived ass forgot that was an actual name and just laughed and said ‘ding ding ding, haha, why do they love the luas so much’

The Laois Rose is a strong independent farmer who don’t need no man with road frontage, she’s got her own. #RoseofTralee

People are really getting desperate..
The Rock of Dunamase in Co. Laois dates back many hundreds of years. The Rock stands 46m tall and was ideal as a defensive position with its view right up to the Slieve Bloom Mountains.https://t.co/4u2JkVYM5K pic.twitter.com/tEQ5iEMyDS
