The Offaly Camogie County Board has donated €2,000 to the Faithful fields project located just outside Kilcormac. The Faithful Fields committee member Tony Murphy thanked Offaly Camogie for their tremendous donation and spoke highly of camogie in the county. The money will go toward much needed works on Offaly GAA's future flagship facility.
The Faithful Fields project is a plan to construct a Centre of Excellence for Offaly GAA, and it includes four full sized training pitches with floodlights of a sufficient standard to host games, a complex with six modern dressing rooms, a meeting room/dining area, a weights/circuit training room, and a 1.1km walkway available for use by the wider community. Work is already underway on the site near Kilcormac and according to the Faithful Fields website, the project has now raised €559,478 of their €750,00 target.
One of the more high profile fundraisers for the project takes place on March 18 when Offaly golfer Shane Lowry hosts a golf classic at his home club of Esker Hills Golf Course.
