Front and back page, online, broadcast including RTE TV news! Wall to wall coverage gained for Waterford LGFA and our new project to develop our own training complex.
Plenty of fundraising has been completed in Waterford since the idea was born in 2015, and the hope is that it will serve players in the county for future generations.
Work on the field is expected to commence by the summer, and the facility will consist of a state-of-the-art pitch with a pitchside spectator stand, changing rooms, coach and car park and a full six lane running track around the perimeter of the pitch.
The facility will be available for all county and club teams across all grades in Waterford LGFA, along with the wider community both locally and nationally.
“It will mean that county players will no longer have to travel to different GAA fields around the county, not knowing where their next training session will be on a weekly and even daily basis,” a statement reads, with funding fully planned and works expected to be completed by the spring of 2023. Edel Curry, secretary of Waterford LGFA’s field development sub-committee said. “It is the intention of the Waterford Ladies Gaelic Football Association to provide a multifunctional playing and facilities development in what is a strategic location in the county. We firmly believe that it will be a key driver for the greater development of the entire area in terms of sporting, social and economic advancement. Our project will greatly enhance the participation of all age categories in our sport and look forward to its immediate commencement. The youngsters who will benefit from this development will be our stars of the future and hopefully, bring continued All-Ireland glory.”
Thanks to Brian Purcell and Patrick Browne Photography for their work in promoting this exciting project.
