With their long wait to contest the 2020 Leinster Championship finals almost over, the Offaly minor football and hurling squads recently received new gear thanks to some local sponsors.
Elegant Designs, Edenderry (represented by Greg Farrelly), Liffey Mills (represented by Willie Boland), and the Laois & Offaly Education and Training Board generously provided donations to Offaly GAA County Board in support of both sets of players.
The panels have been training regularly since collective training was permitted to resume by the Government and, previously, were provided with individual programmes by the respective management teams during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Only 200 spectators will be allowed at the games, but there will be live coverage of the football final on TG4 and the hurling final will be streamed live.
County Board Chairman, Michael Duignan, expressed his thanks to each of the sponsors and extended best wishes to the players and management as Offaly finally get set to compete in both Minor finals in the same year for the first time since 1989.
