Update on The Faithful Fields Project

The Faithful Fields Project is now nearing completion.  To-date four pitches, two of which are fully flood lit, six dressing rooms, dining area, two upstairs meeting rooms, ball wall and gym, have been completed.

It is hoped that in the next month the relevant bodies will link the site to essential services, which will then allow activity to commence.

The outstanding items for completion are, the Gym fit out, walk way lighting and surfacing, car park surfacing, flood lighting of two pitches and the all-weather training area surface.

To-date €720,000 of the targeted €750,000 local contribution, has been raised and one final push will help, subject to funding from State bodies to complete the above. Donations can be made via The Faithful Fields website http://faithfulfields.com/donate/  or any member of The Faithful Fields Committee.

All work to-date has been completed debt free thanks to the support of Croke Pk, Leinster GAA, Sports Capital Funding, Offaly West Enterprise funding and of course the generous support of the people and business of Offaly.
