€102k Sports Capital Grant

posted 30 Nov 2017, 04:35 by Edenderry GAA   [ updated 30 Nov 2017, 04:36 ]

Today is a good news day and another step in the long journey to deliver a top class sports campus for the local community. Shane Ross T.D., Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, and Brendan Griffin T.D. Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, today announced €56m in allocations under the 2017 round of the Sports Capital Programme (SCP) to over 1,700 different sporting projects.



Following the submission of a very detailed and valid application, we have secured €102,000 of that funding towards the next phase of our development. 

Despite being the largest grant allocated to any group in Co. Offaly, the grant only represents c.50% of the project costs associated with the Astro Facility.  When er complete our Carrick Esker pitches in the Spring we will be putting our renewed energies into making up the gap to get started with this badly need all weather & floodlight facility.

You can help by signing up to Club 300 Membership .  

Our meticulous planning in recent years, our strategies and sound financial management have positioned us to capitalise on this and other grant funding.  Many congratulations to those club members that assisted with the application.  In addition we must thank the Principals and management of our local schools for their on-going support.  This facility, like all of our facilities are open free of charge at all times to our schools. 

Many thanks to our National and Local Representatives that have taken an interest in our Project and supported us along the way.  We are delighted to have Marcella Corcoran Kennedy T.D, Carol Nolan T.D & Barry Cowen T.D. with us last April when we launched our plans.  All of our local representatives are supportive of our overall vision but in particular Noel Cribbin, as an active member, has taken an especially keen interest.

RIP Pat 'PC' Cullen

posted 24 Nov 2017, 05:49 by Edenderry GAA   [ updated 28 Nov 2017, 15:04 ]


The Club was very sad to hear of the passing of former Red and Offaly Star Pat ‘PC’ Cullen.  On behalf of the club we wish to extend our deepest sympathies to all of the Cullen family.  Pat played for the Reds throughout youth winning an U16 Championship in 1959 before lining out with the Reds in the Minor Championship in 1960 & 1961.  Paddy played for the Seniors throughout the 1960’s and represented his County at Senior level on 9 occasions.  From 1964 to 1966 Paddy played eight league games and one Championship Match for Offaly.  On 2nd May 1965 he played No. 5 for Offaly in the Leinster Football Senior Championship Vs. Longford in Mullingar, only to be beaten 1-5 to 0-5.  He continued to play for the Reds following his Offaly career and was part of the travelling party to Birmingham in 1968 that took on local side Erin Go Breagh.  After his playing days he was a greater supporter of the Reds and Offaly.

Peter Brady appointed senior football manager

posted 24 Nov 2017, 03:14 by Edenderry GAA


Former Edenderry footballer Peter Brady will return as the senior football manager for 2018 having previously managed the team from 2010 until 2016.

The backroom team has also been put in place with former Edenderry team-mates Declan Farrell and Wayne Mooney serving as selectors, Colin McNamara as physical trainer and Padriag Foy will resume his role as statistician.

Having won five senior county medals as a player, Brady began his senior managerial career in 2010 with the reds and in 2011 bridged a ten year gap as the reds beat Clara to capture their 10th county title. In 2014, Edenderry won their first Division one league title in seventeen years and one year later in 2015 they lifted the Dowling Cup for the 11th time when they avenged their 2014 final defeat at the hands of Rhode.

After stepping down at the end of 2016, Brady took charge of Laois side O'Dempsey's where he guided them to an unexpected Division one league title and a quarter final spot in the SFC where they lost out to eventual champions Portlaoise.
