This week we saw tweets featuring everything from a brief history of Portlaoise, positive mantras for life and the only person in Ireland (probably) who hasn’t heard Maniac 2000.
We’re back with our top tweets of the week.
The reason behind the name Portlaoise was to trick the English into building a load of boats in Laois thinking that we were an inland port only for us to laugh at them safely inside the town while shouting “Also” at them, thus beginning Portlaoise sarcasm

Seen someone last night in Tully's with their phone in the air trying to find a song on shazam. The song playing was Maniac 2000

Classic mammy response.
Could we maybe swap the six counties for Dublin?? Would probably take a few unionists over the Dubs saying “is Laois even a county” every five minutes

This would be a fair deal.
