I am walking to help raise much needed funds for both Offaly GAA and Crumlin Children's Hospital. As a representative of the Offaly senior football team I understand the financial cost involved in the running of Gaelic games within the county. I hope for Offaly GAA to continue to develop and prosper in the near future and in order for that to happen funds need to be raised. The money raised will go a long way in bringing us to the next level and to being competitive again. Although I have no personal connection to Crumlin Children's Hospital, I have seen first hand the invaluable work that is done there every day and through fundraisers like this one the children there will continue to receive world class care in to the future.
