County Offaly – Contae Uíbh Fhailí

Sisters Louise and Faye Conroy, two GAA players living in Ealing, are representing County Offaly.

Louise, a primary school teacher, and Faye, a quantity surveyor, play for Fr Murphy’s GA club and hail from Banagher in County Offaly – the ‘faithful county’.

They both miss the greenery and serenity of Offaly’s castles, gardens and scenic loughs on sunny days. They go through some great spots which you will want to put on your must–see list, such as Birr Castle and Lough Boora.
