Some good news landed yesterday just in time for Christmas.
Following a recent grant application to Kilkenny County Council under the CCFCS for Spectator Railing around the pitches, we are delighted to share the news that we have received a grant of €10,000 towards the project which will add another important piece of infrastructure to the grounds. Big thank you to all involved in the application.
This morning we took delivery of an important piece of match day equipment at our new grounds in Suir Crescent.
Courtesy of a donation from a very kind local businessman (who wishes to remain anonymous), Croom Concrete delivered two precast concrete dugouts which will be a massive on matchday for our subs and coaches for both home and away teams.
Unfortunately, the soft ground conditions will delay their final resting spot for now.
This week saw the final leg of the installation of LED floodlighting in Suir Crescent and it is certainly impressive.
Big big thanks to all for their work on this project from Watmór Construction and Civil Ltd, Paul O’Toole and Piltown Engineering and finally John Ryan with Germar Electrical for the final push. Projects like these don’t come cheap and it would not have been possible without The 300 Club Syndicate.
Everyone can play their part going forward and support our Ladies Committee who run our 50 50 draw which contributes towards the maintenance costs of the club.
We had a couple of visitors to our new grounds recently and both were very impressed with what they viewed and also heard from all present. Simon Coveney, Minister for Foreign Affairs and John Paul Phelan TD were accompanied by local councillor Patrick Dunphy and members of the local branch of Fine Gael.
