Portlaoise came to life at the weekend for the Old Fort Quarter Festival as thousands of people flocked to the town to enjoy family fun, food, heritage events and live music.

The weekend was a huge success from cupcake decorating, shield making, heritage walks, food stalls, local music and headline acts. As media partner to the festival, the Leinster Express was delighted to capture some of the highlights of the weekend.
