In Pictures: Weather fails to dampen the spirits at Laois GAA Halloween Camp

Over 100 children attended a Laois GAA Halloween Camp in the Centre of Excellence this week.

The three-day camp – run across Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – was a huge success in spite of the inclement weather that forced the activities indoors for all of Wednesday and the first half of Thursday.

But the facilities in O’Moore Park and the Centre of Excellence were ideal for catering for the small groups.

Primary school children from six up were able to attend and under the guidance of Laois GAA Games Manager Mike Henchy were looked after by 11 young coaches who all availed of the part-time work on offer on their own mid-term breaks from school and college.

Children from all over the county took part, availing of the opportunity to practise their skills while they were on school holidays.

When our photographer arrived on Thursday morning, the kids were back out on the pitches and in full-on game mode in both hurling and football.
