Sports Capital Grant Application 2023

In the last week, we have submitted our application for funding towards an astro turf training area as part of the 2023 Sports Capital Programme. This will be the next stage of the development of Suir Crescent and will be crucial to enable our ever expanding club to train all year round in all weather conditions. We have applied for €200,000 and will be looking for the support of all local councillors and TDs in our quest for funding. To date over €520,000 has been invested in Suir Crescent, which is down to the people of Mooncoin supporting the development and successful grant applications in recent years. Fingers crossed, we will be starting the next phase of our impressive grounds soon enough.

New dugouts in place

At last we have had a dry spell of weather to get our dugouts dropped in place. Massive thank you to Peter Brennan of Ashgrove Transport for moving the dugouts today👏, thanks to Watmór for providing the base layer for housing the dugouts, thanks to Eric Walsh for holding the spirit level too and finally a massive thank you to the company who sponsored these dugouts, again……An incredible gesture 👏.

A birds eye view

We had an eye in the sky during the week to showcase some of the work done in the last 12 months at a cost of just under €160,000.

None of this would have been possible without the support of everyone in our 300 club and everyone supporting our 50 50 draw. Thank you for your continued support.

Soccer Marathon Third Time Luck

Next Sunday (July 30th) at the third time of asking, we will hold our Soccer Marathon in Suir Cresent from 2-5.30 followed by the presentation of our end of season awards.

Wild Willow Coffee Trailer will be on site as well as a BBQ overseen by our two club chefs.

We would like to thank all of the people to date who have contributed sponsorship via the link and urge all to share the link with friends and family that might support our club.

Looking forward to seeing you all next Sunday.


This week, we have Garry Flood Landscaping on site in Suir Crescent carrying out the annual sanding, shockwaving and overseeding of the entire ground.

This type of maintenance is crucial and would not be possible without the support of so many through our 300 Club Syndicate and our 50 50 draws.

Exciting News: Funding Grant

We are delighted to announce that we have been granted €20,000 as part of the Community Recognition Fund led by Kilkenny County Council.

This will fund the road surfacing from the roadway in Suir Cresent up to the new entrance which will be started shortly.

Thank you as always for your continued support, without the support of all stakeholders in helping develop our facilities, we would not be granted such funding to enhance the facilties.

Another placed up in Suir Crescent

Another sign erected in Suir Crescent to acknowledge the assistance received through the Sports Capital Grant program.

Our LED Floodlighting of training areas would not have been possible without this grant of €58,806. A big thank you must go to everyone that helped secure the grant and oversee the project.

Also, thanks to the young man on the spirit level who helped put the sign in place.
