Offaly GAA last weekend played out their U14 Football Féile Competitions and on Sunday morning last in The Faithful Fields clubs the length and breadth of the County flocked to the Faithful Field as they bided to represent Offaly in the John West Féile Peile na nÓg Competition which is being hosted by Down, Louth and Meath from 29th June to 1st July 2018.
This year Offaly will have 3 Clubs representing the County – in Division 3 – based in Kilcoo, Co Down, Division 6 based in Longstone, Co Down and Division 10 based in Slane, Co Meath.
