GAA clubs the length and breath of Laois paid their own tributes to the Bloody Sunday victims on Saturday night as they lit up their grounds, lit candles and showed a sign of solidarity to those who lost their lives 100 years ago this weekend.

With Covid-19 putting pay to any proper remembrance, that didn't stop the Laois clubs and County board officers from showing their support.
