WORK on Barntown National School's new sports pitch is continuing apace and generating plenty of excitement, according to school board chairman Fr. John Carroll.
'It is hoped that the works will complete within the next two weeks,' he said, 'and after that the process of allowing the pitch to mature towards use will begin.'
Fr. Carroll said great credit was due to a 'very diligent and capable board of management and local man Michael Brazzill who, with his brother Mark, is on the board, and have been at hand throughout to offer expertise, assistance, advice and reassurance that have helped to deliver a top class school and sports facility'.
