Updating the Development Plan

Coaching and Games
Finance & Fundraising
Club Development & Facilities
Culture, Community & PR.
Works in Lisnamult
Our next phase of development work in Lisnamult is to upgrade our car parking facilities and sports wall surface. Health and safety is of utmost importance and we are conscious of the safety of everyone using our facilities and attending training, games etc. The works proposed comprise of:
- Resurfaced, properly drained and marked carpark
- Drop off zone
- 900m2 astro surface at the sports wall with fencing and lighting
- New car park spaces adjacent to the main pitch
These developments will improve the safety of our members and supporters and they will provide a playing surface that can be used during adverse weather conditions when the pitches are not playable.
Works on the development is expected to start end of 2019 with drainage completed first. Parking and an All weather surface was considered to allow both players and parent to enjoy the facilities in Lisnamult. New carparking will be provided near the main pitch to ensure adequate parking is available during training session.

What a night in the Hyde. The Halloween disco was a “thrilling” success. Thanks to all the helpers and especially the parents who brought the kids.
