Laois sports club forced to take action over security


Club says CCTV will have to be installed

The Portarlington Rugby Club has notified members and the public about the problems faced and action to be taken.

"Unfortunately, some antisocial behaviour and larger gatherings have been reported in the club grounds recently. This is disappointing considering the efforts of our volunteers to make our facilities available as a safe outlet for so many during the latest lockdown.
