It was fitting that June evening summer sunshine was the backdrop for reopening of Portlaoise's GAA grounds in Rathleague.

The pitches looked resplendent as players trained at the facility in months.

Fittingly, Club chairman Jas Reilly had the honour of opening the gates after the Covid-19 lockdown.

He was ably assisted by Malcolm Nealon, Secretary, Declan McEvoy, Treasurer, Liam Breen, Groundsman, Ollie Byrne, Maintenance.

Covid-19 signs have been erected around the grounds to remind players and others of the precautions they must take to avoid infection.
