In a statement earlier this week Laois GAA said: “We are live streaming senior games in both hurling and football from MW Hire O’Moore Park. With the current crowd restrictions due to the covid 19 pandemic and huge interest from all our clubs and supporters we are delighted to bring the games to you live.
“The pandemic has brought about many changes and we have been extremely busy working to bring the best possible service to all. We are thrilled to have Michael Egan continue his support with Laois GAA TV. John Moynihan from All Rounder Sport has teamed up with us to provide the live streaming service and the popular Killeshin commentator Killian Whelan will be anchoring the commentary for all matches. We will also have some very special guests co-commentating over the coming weeks.
“Keep an eye on our social media channels to find out more details of games and how to register to view over the coming days.”
