Portlaoise have been crowned Laois SFC champions for the 35th time following their narrow win over first-time finalists Killeshin in O’Moore Park yesterday afternoon.
Portlaoise had to dig very deep to pull through against a Killeshin side that pushed them all the way and even led at a couple of different stages in the second half.
But The Town called on all their collective experience to complete their latest three-in-a-row and win their 12th title in 13 years.
Gareth Dillon and Brian Glynn were immense in the second half but Kieran Lillis was on top throughout and was rightly named man of the match.
It was tough on Killeshin who battled all the way as two David Aston points narrowed the gap to just a point with a minute to play.
They had one last attack to try get level but their attack broke down and Portlaoise held on to win 0-14 to 2-7.
Portlaoise were crowned champions for the third year in a row.
Our photographer Julie Anne Miller was on hand to capture the celebrations at full time on the pitch.
