November 8, 2018


Great progress is being made in the work to complete the new Hurling Wall and Astro Turf area. These two facilities are Phase 1 of our Planned Development. Phase 2 will be launched publicly in the next few weeks. There is a major financial commitment needed to complete all the work and we will be asking for the support of our community of Bartlemy, Rathcormac and Kildinan to ensure that we can provide top class facilities.
