Congratulations to Pinta client, the GAA as they announce plans to develop high performance purpose-built facilities for the Association at the National Sports Campus in Blanchardstown.
The new facility will include four full size pitches including one to the scale of Croke Park; a full size 3G training facility; a hurling wall; a state-of-the-art pavilion to include 10 changing rooms,
a viewing gallery for 350 people and ancillary space to cater for offices, meeting rooms, physiotherapy, a gym and a canteen. Parking spaces for 256 cars and eights coaches have also been included.
The facility will serve as a national training centre for all strands of the wider Association including Camogie and Ladies Football and will assist in catering for the needs of counties, clubs, schools and colleges in Dublin and the greater Leinster area.
In total, the GAA will invest €9 million in the facility. It is expected that development work will commence in the coming weeks and will be ready for use by September 2014.
“This is a milestone project, not just for the GAA, but for sport in Ireland and we are delighted to be involved”.
Páraic Duffy, Director General, GAA.
