THEY’VE BEEN ONE of the best and brightest parts of the GAA 2014-15 club campaign and Austin Stacks supporters were out in force again yesterday.

Their team may have bowed out of the AIB All-Ireland senior club football championship at the semi-final stage against Derry’s Slaughtneil, but the Tralee side were well-supported in O’Moore Park in Portlaoise.
