An audioguide which tells the history of Portlaoise is being launched on August 26 in County Hall.
Produced by Laois Heritage Society, the guide travels back in time to the establishment of the settlement in the 16th Century.
Stories can be heard about the people who helped shape the modern town of Portlaoise, such as James Fintan Lalor.
From architects who designed Portlaoise’s prominent buildings, to pioneering visionary William Dargan, and the tales of highwaymen like Grant the Robber, this audioguide is packed with stories, facts and information.
The audioguide is free to download from www.abartaaudioguides.com.
