Portlaoise RFC hosting Irish coach Joe Schmidt this April

Joe Schmidt will be in The Heritage Hotel this April.

Portlaoise Rugby Club have a treat for sports fans tomorrow night when they host Irish rugby coach Joe Schmidt at Portlaoise Heritage Hotel.

Schmidt will speak from 6pm to 7.30pm, and he will be discussing a wide range of topics, from Ireland's 6 Nations campaign to pathways for younger players into the professional game. Widely regarded as one of the best rugby coaches in the world, it promises to be a special occasion for all in attendance, and a unique opportunity for rugby fans, and indeed all sports fans, in Laois.
