One of the highlights of the school GAA calendar is the Primary School Game.  This is a team which is picked from all the schools in the county to represent Waterford before the Munster championship.  The Primary team alternates between the boys and the girls.  It is a great honour to be chosen to represent your county.  Portlaw N.S. has been fortunate to have had players represented on this team.  The Primary Game began in 1998 and is growing in popularity.  The following are our representatives on the teams.
