2019 was quite the year for all involved with Laois GAA, and with the season drawing to a close we're now at the awards stage of the year.
The most coveted awards on offer, the Senior Footballer of the Year and Senior Hurler of the Year, will be following the Delaney and O'Keefe Cups to county champions Portlaoise and Rathdowney-Errill respectively.
The Intermediate Footballer of the Year and Senior 'A' Hurler of the Year awards will both be heading to Rosenallis, and to the same household at that, in what will be a proud day for the club and family.
The Laois GAA Awards Night will take place on Friday 29th November at the Midlands Park Hotel, and will also the feature the 2019 Joe McDonagh Cup-winning Laois Senior hurlers who will receive their medals on the night:
