Marty Morrissey & The Laois Team

A Discussion With Eddie Brennan and the Laois Hurlers

For the second time in less than two weeks, the Laois Senior Hurling team will turn up where no-one really expected them to! (Outside of Laois that is!) After a truly fine display in their All-Ireland Quarter Final match against Tipperary, the hurling team, along with manager, Eddie Brennan, and the recently acquired Joe McDonagh Cup, will appear at the Folly Festival, on Friday July 19th!

And who better to discuss their amazing heroics of late, than high profile sports commentator, and TV presenter Marty Morrissey. 

Marty was with us last year, for the very first Folly Festival, and we are delighted to welcome him back to Cullohill. And it goes without saying, that we are thrilled to welcome a team of Laois hurlers, who heroically reached the quarter finals of an All Ireland series, for the first time in 40 years!

The whole county was buzzing, on the back of this year’s Championship journey, and we expect them to receive a rousing reception on Friday night!!!

No time has been set as of yet, but Marty, Eddie and the boys will make an appearance, during Friday night’s event, where we have an amazing line up of Irish musical talent!

Hermitage Green, Wyvern Lingo, The Finns, and Sarah Buckley & Band, will all take to the stage to kick start this year’s Folly Festival in style!

Tickets still available HERE.
