The Limerick hurlers' sensational All-Ireland win over Galway on Sunday is bound to inspire future generations of Limerick hurlers but the impact doesn’t stop there as it has had a knock on effect on the youth of Laois too.

Young Laois hurlers from Clonad GAA Club were out supporting Limerick on their homecoming journey through Portlaoise on Monday.

Aedan and Fia Conroy with their parents Leona and Seorise even got a hold of the Liam McCarthy cup as it passed through Portlaoise train station before being welcomed back to Limerick by up to 90,000 people on Monday evening.

The family made posters saying “Congratulations Limerick from Clonad GAA” and cleverly waited for the team train to pass through Portlaoise station before seizing the moment and getting some fantastic pictures with the legendary Liam McCarthy cup.

Thanks to Clonad GAA for sending this our way.

Another Laois family, the Kealys from Borris Kilcotton GAA Club were waiting at Ballybrohpy train station and they too managed to get a picture with the Liam McCarthy!

Thanks to John Kealy for the picture.
