The construction and installation of our 1,750m2 synthetic grass training area complete with a 35m ball wall will commence over the next few days.

The development will utilise part of the existing grass training area and we expect the development will be completed within the next 10 weeks.

The synthetic grass area will be 50m x 35m and will comprise of 3G FIFA certified synthetic grass with 60mm monofilament grass sand/rubber infill laid on a shock pad system.

The area will be fully drained and surrounded with a 2.4m high mesh fence on top of which will be ball stop netting 2.6m high giving a total height of 5m. There will also be two entrance gates, one double and one single with a roadway from the existing car park.

The concrete precast ball wall will be 35 meters in length and 5 meters in height. The area will be fully floodlit with a 4 column 12 meter high LED floodlighting system. Premier Pitches, from Cashel, is the contractor.

This project will cost in the region of €250,000. Once complete it will bring spending on the Pairc na nEalaí project to in excess of €1.35m. A massive amount of money, and none of this would have been possible without your continued support of our weekly lotto, and our ever popular annual 12 Days of Christmas Draw, which will return later in 2024.

Thank you for your continued and appreciated support.
