New dawn

What started out as a pipe dream 6 years ago has now become reality as we have turned Suir Crescent into a state of the art facility that our current crop of youngsters, both male and female will enjoy for years to come and also many generations after them. It took 2 years and many calls and emails through local councillor Patrick Dunphy, John Paul Phelan TD and the then Junior Housing Minister Paudie Coffey TD to secure our 30 year lease and from there it took enormous patience from the time John Crowley generously sprayed off the old property to main contractor Declan Walsh and Sons taking on the task of stopping and starting and eventually overseeing a brilliant project that all in Mooncoin can be very proud of. We have attached some photos from before the soccer club’s time…… to John Crowley getting ready to spray……to discovering the old drainage system if you can spot it…….. to a handsome Stephen Walsh preparing drains…. to where we were this evening in glorious sunshine with our u11 squad enjoying their return to training.
