Pitch Development
Over the last two months the club has invested in the maintenance of the main pitch to keep it to a high standard. Starting with worm treatment earlier in the year we applied fertiliser to take us into May when we carried out sanding and hollow tining. We have since sprayed weed killer and applied further fertiliser.
The pitch should now start to show strong grass and will need regular cutting.
We have invested €6000 this year carrying out the above works.
Hopefully the money is well spent and will stand to us this winter. You can support this work by supporting our club draw below.
