Maynooth GAA New Pitches
To cater for the needs of our ever expanding community Maynooth GAA club, in conjunction with Maynooth Post Primary School, undertook development of the site on the Moyglare Road to include 5 pitches, a 1.5km walking track with changing and toilet facilities. The provision of such top class grounds will significantly benefit Maynooth.
At present, we have 2 ½ pitches servicing the training and playing needs of over 65 club teams, as well as being available to our local schools to support their needs. This is clearly a chronic lack of facilities to support the needs of our community.
As we receive no state funding, we are completely dependent on the goodwill of the people of Maynooth to fund the development of these pitches.
We have now applied for a 2014 Capital Grant from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport to help us complete Phase 2 of this critical development. Maynooth GAA has never received a Capital Grant to support our development needs in the past.
We are appealing to our local representatives to support this grant application. The community of Maynooth badly need these facilities, and we need all of our local representatives to ensure our voice and needs are heard.
