Many thanks to all members who supported the 2012 draw and this funding along with IRD Duhallow and Cork County Council grants has helped complete a lot of work this year, including spectator stand renovation, new dug outs, solar water heating system, pitch maintenance and a new hurling wall as well as maintenance of the facility.
The Committee hopes to do further works next year including Outdoor Gym equipment, carpark area (thanks to support of IRD grants) as well as pitch drainage works and ask that all clubs, joggers, walkers etc that use the facility support the fundraising draw again in 2013 costing €100p/a.
The group welcome the Sports Capital grant of €22,000 announced by Aine Collins TD recently. Wishing all our supporters a Happy Christmas.
