The family of Gaelic Games in Offaly will benefit from this training centre. Offaly Hurling and Football Development Squads (boys & girls) at Under 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17/ Minor, Under 21 and Senior Panels including Camogie & Ladies Football will benefit from the use of the facilities on a regular basis. The Faithful Fields Offaly GAA Training Centre will be a vital asset in providing for the first time, centralised state of the art training pitches, gymnasium and meeting rooms to all of these panels.
A total of 26 Offaly teams will use the facilities on a regular basis. In addition, the centre will also be utilised for schools competitions and underage county blitzes alleviating a variety of over used club grounds currently providing for all of the above activities.
Greater Participation & Developing Talent
Offaly GAA is a very proud GAA county. The success story has been remarkable and is the envy of most. One of the most successful dual counties, it has been in the doldrums in recent years but there is a burning desire among all strands of the GAA family to bring a return to the glory days.
A massive programme of work has been carried out at underage level in recent years and while success has yet to come, there are encouraging signs that it is yielding dividends and a corner has been turned.
It is hoped that the new training grounds will provide a practical and very real assistance to the tremendous work that is going on in Coaching and Games Development at county and club level.
The county is crying out for football and hurling success and the Training Centre is an important part of the vision that is being put in place to help achieve this.
