Portarlington is the second largest town in county Laois. It's locally known as Port. This can lead to confusion among some people who might regard Portlaoise as Port but Portarlington has been here a lot longer and therefore has a greater claim to the name. The town is split in 2, most of the shops, houses and pubs are in Laois. The schools and one pub are over the river in Offaly. Claims to fame are some of the film "Into the West" was filmed there. The part of the film with the horse eating the popcorn in the cinema was filmed in the local Savoy which is now closed.
