This photo was taken early one morning in the mid-1980s at Sheffield Cross between Portlaoise and Ballyroan. 
Many people will remember their uncle, Lukie Wall, who was a household name all around the county.

This photo was taken in Chapel St Ballyroan possibly in the 50's.

Valerie Fawsitt's happy memory of her parents, Eileen and Victor Taylor's first visit to Laois when they moved to Laois in the scorching  summer of 1995. 
“Three months later Mum had a massive stroke, leaving her confined to a wheelchair for her remaining three and a half years.  
“Dad cared for her  lovingly and nothing was too much trouble for him. 
“He even took her to the hairdressers every week and did her makeup!! Sadly, we also lost him twelve years ago. Both sadly missed.”
