“A lot of planning has gone into these camps”, said Eamonn Henry, Coordinator of Offaly Sports Partnership. “We need to make sure that they are safe and enjoyable for the children that take part and that parents have confidence in the measures we put in place for this to happen”. Mr. Henry thanked the Crinkle Sports and Recreation Centre, Tullamore Sports Link and Derry Rovers FC for giving the Sports Partnership access to their facilities for the camps. He added that the Partnership is open to taking its camps to other locations in the County from July 27th if it is offered access to a suitable outdoor facility and dates do not clash with the camps of other sports organisations in the same locality.
