Our 300 Club Monthly Draw will take place tomorrow, Monday 28th at 6 p.m.
Some aerial photos of the slit drainage and steel poles awaiting the fitting of ball stop netting. Big thank you to the crow for sending on the aerial shots.
The drainage works on Suir Crescent were completed this week and security fencing is near completion. Ball stop netting is next up and will commence on Monday all going well. The final piece of works of this phase will be hedging to be planted on the perimeter of the ground. Slowly getting there.
Drainage work is ongoing in Suir Crescent with slit drainage being carried out this week. Also, weather permitting this week will see more work on fencing and ball stop netting start.
After a little wait due to a number of reasons, the next phase of works on our new pitch development started this morning with Gary Flood and team commencing drainage works. Over the next few weeks, drainage works, security fencing, ball stop netting and hedging of the boundary will all be completed all going well. None of this work or previous works to date would have been possible without the support of our 300 club syndicate and Finance Committee steering it, so a massive thank you to all for their support. Exciting times just around the corner.
Some work recently carried out in the new grounds. Trees were cut back and removed to allow for security fencing and ball stop netting to be put up in the coming weeks.
Our development is starting to come together. The dressing rooms are almost complete! Hopefully in the next few weeks we will have our ball stop netting and security fencing complete. Thanks to everyone for supporting our 300 Club Members Draw, without this support none of this would be possible.
Over the last few months work has been done on the old dressing room building in our new field. Walls have been knocked, wiring installed, new doors and windows installed and the space cleaned up….a lot! In the next few weeks more work will continue on the building. This could not have been achieved without the continued support from our members and the community and we would like to say a big thank you to everyone!! Watch this space for more progression pictures.
With us all in lockdown over the last few weeks and still unsure of when we will get back to some bit of normality it is nice when a bit of good news arrives.
This week a little bit of good news regarding our Development in Suir Crescent landed which we would like to share with you all.
Following our 2018 (yes 2018) Sports Capital Grant Application, we are delighted to finally receive the approval of a grant of €75000 towards the development. This is great news for the club as we get ready to move into the next stage of the development. This successful application would not have been possible without the continued support of our 300 Club Syndicate. The success of the syndicate and the money generated by it has been crucial in securing funding towards the development, so a massive thank you to all that have supported it to date and we hope this support will continue as the development progresses.
Well done to all that were involved in the securing of this grant. We will announce the next stage of planned works in due course.
Work has started on the entrance road into the new ground and also the roadway in the ground. Brilliant to see Declan Walsh and the lads back on site to get vital works started.
