The main source of funding is from the Patrons Wall for which there are currently 143 donors (€5 per week/€260 per year) and it is hoped that more people will be able to support this going forward to help to bring the project to its completion.
Best of luck to the Offaly Senior Hurling panel, especially our K/K representatives, who take on Dublin in the first round of the National Hurling League this Saturday at 5pm in Croke Park and also to the Offaly Senior Footballers who begin their National League campaign against Longford in Bord na Mona O’Connor Park, Tullamore on Sunday at 2pm.
