O ‘Moore Park, Portlaoise is located less than 5 minutes’ drive from Maldron Hotel Portlaoise. The stadium is the home of the Laois GAA teams in both football and hurling.
The stadium has been used as a GAA ground since 1888 and was purchased by Maryborough GAA in 1908 and in 1917 it was purchased as the county grounds, making it one of the first grounds to be purchased only 6 years after Croke Park was bought as the home of GAA. It hosts club and county teams throughout the year. The ground has a capacity of approximately 25,000 and is considered one of Ireland's best under weather football pitches.
It is the venue for many club and county matches, particularly since the installation of floodlights and is frequently used as a neutral stadium for inter-county matches not involving Laois.
The pitch and grounds underwent a 1 Million euro restoration in 2015
The grounds are located 0.5 km from Portlaoise town centre on the N80 road (Abbeyleix Road).
