Cumann Na Sáirseálach On Saturday 1st March the club launched its new fund raising Initiative which is known as Cumann na Sáirsealach. The idea behind this Fundraising Project is to try and improve the Facilities of the club especially in areas such as the upkeep of pitches, Training equipment for our underage level , ie. Sets of Goals, Footballs, cones etc. Along with this it is also the aim of Cumann Ná Sáirseálach to build Dressing rooms at the Pitch 2 and 3 end of the grounds, this is something that is badly needed to improve our ability to host matches due to the large number of teams in the club. (Last year we had 37 teams competed at all levels). The Club has now received Planning Permission to carry out this project. To date Cumann Ná Sairsealach has funded the New ball stop nets on the main pitch and on pitch 3. It has also contributed to the sanding which has recently taken place on the pitches and will improve the playing surface, and also to training equipment for underage.
All the info on this can be found on the web site This is a great opportunity to support your club and help us to develop it more for the future.
