Phase 3 Redevelopment Commences:
Phase 3 of our club redevelopment plan commenced last week with the main focus on the road-side spectators area. Phase 3 consists of removal & replacing of the old concrete fencing & wire around the pitch, removal & replacing of the old flood lighting on the road side, installation of a new multipurpose sports surface & safety netting as well as some additional car parking spaces. This phase is another very exciting time in our Club’s evolution benefiting everyone involved in playing our games. The community of Croom as a whole, continues to grow, enriching the lives of all locals and surrounding areas with many projects in progress from education, health care & community development. Croom GAA Club are extremely proud to be contributing to this positive future in our parish. We will continue to keep you updated throughout this phase of development – stay tuned!
Due to the Redevelopment, we will be unable to run the Cúl Camp this year. However, training for all our young players will be starting soon and we look forward to welcoming everyone back. New players are very welcome.
