Progress on Raheen GAA walking track project

Tuesday, May 17, marked a momentous day for Raheen GAA as it officially launched its new development plan to bring a walking track to the local community, all of which was all made possible with the financial support from the Offaly Local Development company.

The club would like to personally thank John Troy, Roisin Lennon and Brendan O’Loughlin for all of their help and support in obtaining the funding allocation which will bring this walking track development programme to life. The club would especially like to thank Cathaoirleach Cllr Declan Harvey, and local Cllr Eddie Fitzpatrick for their valuable assistance and promotion of the project.

To mark this special occasion for Raheen GAA, the club presented the local councillors and members of the Offaly Local Development with a DVD of Offaly’s greatest GAA moments from 1960 to 1998.

Raheen GAA looks forward to welcoming its club members along with members of its local community to enjoy the new facilities upon completion of the development project.

The tender for the walking track has been granted to the local firm of Mulligan Agri-Plant Hire.
