GAA Astroturf project

Last weekend saw the final laying of our 800sq/m state-of-the-art 3G pitch with Max 60 carpet over performance pad at our new facility at Pairc Naomh Eirc. While there are still some minor works to be finalised, it is wonderful to see the hard work bearing fruition. With the floodlights also in place, we are really looking forward to welcoming our club members to enjoy this wonderful facility and will be enjoyed for many years to come.
