And Ross Molloy has delivered again!
A year on from his brilliant song ahead of the Laois footballers’ Leinster final appearance, the young Stradbally man has penned a song in support of the Laois hurlers who are coming off the back of a stunning win over Dublin.
They play Tipperary in Croke Park this Sunday, July 14, as part of a double header with the other All Ireland quarter-final between Cork and Kilkenny.
And 13-year-old Ross, a talented singer and guitar player, has duly recorded a very catchy tune that captures the excitement in the county.
Recorded in his home in Stradbally, ‘Laois is on the Up’ is sure to be a big hit again.
Ross, who is heading into second year in Portlaoise College, is an ever-present at GAA games with his father Paul and mother Liz.
But he’s well used to recording songs ahead of GAA occasions and in 2016 he penned one in support ahead of the Stradbally footballers’ county final against Portlaoise – a game they famously won to deny Portlaoise an historic ten titles in a row.
His mother Liz, a fine singer herself, posted Ross’s latest effort on Facebook.

The Laois-Tipperary game takes place in Croke Park on Sunday at 4pm and is being shown live on RTE.
