The club would like to sincerely thank Tom Kennedy Electrical and Lee Keane for putting in the long voluntary hours that has resulted in the car park and one side of the field being lit up. Thanks Tom and Lee, we are very appreciative.
We now move on to the far side of the pitch and will shortly be installing lighting at that side too which will give us a fully functional, fully lit main pitch and training pitch. Pairc na nEalai ‘where the work continues’.
