Offaly GAA PR Committee Round-Up
Weekend Championship Programmes
At last weekend’s senior club championship games Offaly PR Committee introduced a combined weekend programme. This programme covers all senior and intermediate games over the weekend. Going forward these programmes will be available for all senior hurling and football club championship games and also intermediate games, when they are scheduled the same weekend as senior. Money generated from these programmes will be invested in coaching & games development and other initiatives organised by the pr committee. Thanks to all supporters who purchased a programme last weekend and to members of St Rynagh’s, Birr and Kilcormac/Killoughey Clubs for selling these on the day.
