Undoubtedly, the focus on this year’s Senior Football Championship nationally and to far flung places of the World, will be on whether Dublin can bring off the 5 in a row or who will be the Offaly of 2019?
At Christmas 2018 we had Players of the Faithful the documentary of the ‘Greatest one in a row of all times’ al la Paul Rouse. This documentary was very well received both in Offaly and nationally.
Following on from the interest there have been many requests for a ‘replica’ 1982 Offaly Jersey. Offaly GAA County Board in conjunction with the 1982 winning team, O’Neill’s Sportswear and Colgan Sports are pleased to announce that the Offaly 1982 replica jersey will be available in May 2019.
The Official launch will take place in the Faithful Fields on Sunday 5th May at 11.30am. Members of the 1982 winning team will be present at the launch.
All the people of Offaly are invited to attend to what will also be the launch of the 2019 Championship campaign for our Senior Footballers and Hurlers. We are calling on all members of the Faithful public to come out and show your support for our the teams ahead of their opening round games against Laois in the Joe McDonagh Cup on Saturday 11th May and Meath on Sunday 12th May in the Leinster Football Championship.
With the focus firmly on Championship, this launch will also coincide with our Minor Hurling and Footballers who are in full championship swing and our U20 Hurlers and Footballers ahead of their championship this summer.
It is a morning not to be missed where you will be treated to tales of old along with a meet and greet with our current players as they bid to get their Championship campaigns off to a flying start.
This is an opportunity not to be missed to get the jersey and get it autographed.
