Cheers, been onto the majority, pretty much all booked out.
Just goes to show how little is available in the area. I hear a rumour Cathal Brugha Barracks is also on a potential list of sales … Also green space in Dolphin s Barn is being significantly reduced.
There is rumours that the Barracks will eventually be taken for housing-it’s army land though… Dolphins barn not still keeping same facilities?
No … The Juvenile Pitch (conveniently renamed as the training area) at the entrance which is the most used pitch in the place will turned into a car park. The cross pitches on the main senior pitches will be reduced in size and the planned 6 story apartment block will tower over the pitches so cross field hurling will be impossible for anything above 10/12 yr olds. The green areas that are used by the kids for training when the pitches are being used, or when they are trying to preserve the pitches to ensure they are playable will be gone. Car park will be reduced to ~70 spots and there are 100-200 cars in the place every Sat morning. But there will be a lovely new dressing room with a balcony and a video analysis room and a gym…
If anyone knows of a pitch with definite availability for Thursday, drop me a message.
