LaoisToday Podcast: New Cathaoirleach of Laois County Council and the men behind impressive Portarlington Garden Centre

LaoisToday Podcast

On the LaoisToday podcast this week, presenter Paul Downey is joined by Steven Miller and newly elected Chairperson of Laois County Council, Conor Bergin. It has been a busy few weeks for the Borris-In-Ossory man and he joined Paul and Steven to tell them all about it.

Among the many topics, we discussed the role of Cathaoirleach and what his job will entail, what he hopes to achieve within the next twelve months, how he was chosen for the position and much more.

Solas Eco Garden Centre was officially opened last week and Steven Miller was there for us to speak with owners David Maher and John Carey.

The lads have poured their hearts (and wallets) into this project and they believe they have created something really special – a destination garden centre which espouses the values of sustainability, good food, community involvement and innovative design.

Steven discussed many great things with the owners including the ideas behind the shop, the site in which it is located and much more.

The LaoisToday podcast is presented by Portlaoise native Paul Downey and is available wherever you get your podcasts.
