Buy a Brick

The Clubhouse will have a varied range of uses and includes five dressing rooms all serviced with shower areas, stores, plant room, electrical room, meeting rooms, toilet areas internally and externally for public use. Also within the new development we have an indoor playing arena for the continued coaching of all players. In particular this facility will be used for the younger group of players within the club. We also hope to have this arena available to the club to hold special events, large meetings, functions etc. We hope to continue our recent progress in the improvement of facilitates over the coming years and the following is a brief list of items which we will be undertaking in the near future: new secure fencing to the river bank, Hurling wall, redevelopment of the current entrance area, further development of training field adjacent to existing pitch and surfacing of car park area. Please continue to support the Buy a Brick fundraiser.
