Development work at Kiltale GAA Pitch

All members please note the following: Work on the new complex will begin on Monday 27th August, beginning with dressing room 2. 

  • New flooring in all dressing rooms and hallway of the dressing rooms
  • New shower and toilet facilities
  • Repair to roofing in dressing rooms/clubhouse
  • Upgrade water and heating to accommodate dressing rooms/clubhouse
  • New Gym

We ask all players and mentors to show patience with the works. The club appreciates that the hurling season is still in full swing, but the timeframe for completion must still be met and work must begin immediately as a result of the delay with the folio number.

To facilitate all, players are asked to appreciate with time that showers will not be available and only one dressing room will be available without showers. As said we apologise for the inconvenience of this but hope that all can appreciate where the committee and club have to work from. The club are most grateful for the assistance of FAS with the work and those that have offered to supply tools etc.

NOTE: Some help is need locally for the start and thereafter Vincent Walsh Construction will complete the remainder of the work. We need assistance and the club would ask if any trade men or members could help them out in the evening to please contact Dom Reilly 0862132288 or Paddy Kelly 0868282458. If you would contact Dom or Paddy and the club will plan to address the work.
