Books at €10 each will be on sale.

Leinster Senior Football Championship

Offaly and Westmeath will have to meet again in Mullingar on Saturday next at 2pm. The early start will allow patrons to get back to Tullamore for the Leinster Football semi-final where Meath and Kildare will meet at 7pm.


Congratulations to Offaly Senior Camogie team who defeated Limerick by 2-18 to 3-14 in the All Ireland Senior Camogie  Championship on Saturday in the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick and to the Offaly Junior team who won the Leinster Junior Final with a 0-10 to 2-2 win over Wicklow in a replay.

Ladies Football

Offaly Ladies recorded a well deserved victory over Longford by 1—11 to 1—10 in Bord na Mona O’Connor Park on Sunday in the TG4 LGFA Leinster Intermediate Championship. The standard of football and the fitness levels on display in Ladies Football matches deserve a lot more support.
