O'CONNOR Park Stadium, Tullamore and the Tihilly Housing Development are among the finalists for the Local Authority Members Association LAMA Awards 2011.

The LAMA awards were created in 2006 to recognise local projects of excellence in construction, community development, recreation and national impact to name a few, as nominated by councillors nationwide.

O'Connor Park is one of six projects shortlisted in the Best Public Stadium (Publicly Funded) category, while the Tihilly Housing Development is one of five projects in contention for the Best Eco Friendly Building.

Both projects were nominated by Offaly County Council and both were designed by Kenny Lyons & Associates Architects.
