All members welcome.  Pitch in to turn our green field blue. The target is to sell 1000 sods at €50 each. Given the healthy membership of the club, this only equates to just over two sods per member. The land has been purchased and a grant of €56,000 towards the development has been secured from Sports Capital Grants 2012. Now the club needs to raise €50,000 to match funding to allow the pitch to be constructed in 2013. Sods may be purchased online at or from any committee member. A certificate of ownership is given with each purchase. Buy Your Sod!
