4 New Pitches for Lackagh as Turloughmore plan for the Future

4 New Pitches for Lackagh as Turloughmore plan for the Future

Turloughmore Hurling and Camogie clubs have launched (July 21, 2023) their next phase of building new playing facilities in Lackagh. An ambitious new Development has been planned in what is an exciting new era for the Club and Community.

Phase 1 of the Development was completed in 2021– a top quality new Astro Pitch and Ball Wall. Phase 2, the purchase of 13.5 acres of land was fully completed in April 2023, thus Phase 3 can now commence. The Club launched their plans on Friday July 21st, at the end of their Summer Cul Camp.

The new Development will feature 4 new pitches, a new walkway, new dressing rooms, stand, new and upgraded car parking as well as all associated infrastructure.

PHASE 3 – The Plan:

Phase 3 of the Development will provide:

  • 2 Full Size sand based playing pitches
  • 1 Juvenile grass playing pitch
  • 1 Juvenile Pitch/Training area
  • Walkway throughout the site with connectivity to the existing Kearney walkway
  • New Car Park provided for 200 vehicles
  • Upgrading of the existing Car Parking area
  • 4 new Dressing Rooms along with spectator facilities
  • Associated pitch infrastructure and perimeter fencing along with floodlighting

 

Long Term Target

  • The provision of top class facilities for our growing community, including 4 new pitches, walkway, floodlighting and all associated infrastructure. It will leave a legacy for the young hurlers and camogie players of the future.

Short Term Target

  • 1 new Pitch and 1 new Juvenile Pitch by 2024. This is an ambitious but achievable target. Note: Needs immediate funding (See Option 1 of the 545 Club)

Of course finance is required to fuel these plans and a fundraising plan has been put in place. The 545 Club is our latest fundraising drive. It is aimed at all with Turloughmore connections - giving a little helps to build a lot. The plan is to add 4 more pitches to the existing one in Lackagh, while the fundraiser is based on giving €5 a week; hence it’s a €5 a week for 5 pitches – 5 for 5 (545)!

 

545 Club:  

Option 1: €5 a week          

Option 2: Up Front payment: €1,000
