It was significant also as it was the first time that the newly built clubroom facilites were used with two dressing rooms, toilets and shower facilities in full working order and kitted outwith two more near completition. With extensive works already carried out, both on the very fine building and also on the two pitches, the grounds are realising their full potential be it for under age camogie and boys training and matches to the intermediates and junior camogie teams. Many thanks is given to the many volunteers and the club structure and Brendan Maher Construction for all the work to date, and while there is a lot done and achieved, the work into the future will contuine for some time yet.
