The facility opened in April of this year to accommodate the local Féile 2015 fixtures for both boys and girls. We recently held the national Cul Camp with over 170 girls and boys attending.
We have four dressing rooms, referee room, office, toilets (internal and external), kitchen, meeting room, two store rooms, large community room.
There is still work to be done within the centre to finish it off including installing kitchen units, floor coverings / finishing, and final dressing room fittings.
Outside we have two large football pitches and a large warm up area. We have recently received a Sports Capital Grant of €132,000. This will enable us to:
- Finish third pitch to a full playing standard
- Develop one pitch into an all weather pitch
- Walkway around pitches
- Quality floodlighting
The remaining works will commence in Knockdoe in the next few weeks to coincide with a break from training.
However, with all Government grants, we must match funding. In our case we must raise approx €40,000.
With this in mind, the club fundraising are planning a few exciting ventures over the next few months. We will keep you updated on Claregalway.info.
