OFFALY GAA CHIEFS have announced a lucrative ten-year naming rights partnership with Bord na Móna for O’Connor Park in Tullamore.

The venue will now be known as Bord na Móna O’Connor Park after the company struck a deal with Offaly GAA.

Bord na Móna CEO Mike Quinn said: “Bord na Móna O’Connor Park is the latest initiative by Bord na Móna to further cement our links with the people of Offaly and Offaly GAA.

“We have a long and distinguished history in delivering for these communities down through the years and we will continue to do so into the future.

“Bord na Móna has always been the dominant employer in this region, which in no small part led to on field success of Offaly teams in capturing Sam Maguire and Liam McCarthy in the 70s, 80s and 90s.

“All of the teams had real and tangible links to Bord na Móna. The naming agreement for Bord na Móna O’Connor Park is the latest chapter in the rich and illustrious history of both organisations.”

Offaly county board chairman Tommy Byrne expressed his delight with the news.

“This is a very natural fit for both organisations. Everybody across the county knows the value Bord na Móna has brought to the people of Offaly down through the years.

“This naming agreement demonstrates real confidence by them in the entire Offaly GAA structure and we are delighted to have them come on board with us in what is a very positive step for all concerned.”

The Bord na Móna agreement will significantly boost Offaly GAA coffers and the Faithful County is following the lead of Wexford, Carlow, Westmeath, Longford, Mayo and Cavan, who have similar agreements with other sponsors in place.
