The Offaly GAA Supporters Club, Club Faithful, recently presented a cheque of €2,500 to the Faithful Fields committee towards the development of The Faithful Fields in Kilcormac. Club Faithful are present at all home games and can be found under the stand in O'Connor Park. Membership is sold at all games and online across their social media channels.
Club Faithful also host a Supporters Zone after home games where you can avail of complimentary tea/coffee and a chat. All are welcome.
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.
