New Developments

Castlelyons GAA Facilities Development


Castlelyons has a proud history of Gaelic Games. The Club has seen and experienced some challenges but many great times too. A special congratulations to all teams in the GAA, Camogie, Ladies football Club and Cúl Eile Camp for their achievements recently. In 2019 Castlelyons GAA Club purchased additional land adjacent to our current pitch with no debt outstanding. This is due to great support of local donors, Munster GAA Grants, and the proceeds of the Community Strictly Dancing event. We secured a loan from the GAA to be paid back over 10 years. Part of the loan was used to complete the land purchase and the remainder will be used for new development.

Phase One of the Development Programme.

The Club is now entering into another exciting phase in its history. Phase One of the Development Programme includes a second Pitch with a new entrance/exit. A Synthetic Pitch, Carpark and Ball Wall will be considered later, which many ambitious but achievable. The GAA Club, Camogie and Ladies Football Clubs are asking you to partner with us in this new ambitious Development Project which will benefit the whole parish for generations to come. Central to this is that our Parish continues to grow. The number of girls, boys and adult playing Gaelic games is on the rise and we must offer modern facilities and pitches to our members and attract parishioners of all ages to use them.

Recent Sports Capital Grant of €150,000.

We received a major boost recently as the Club received €150,000 of a sports capital grant the under the latest round of the Sports Capital and Equipment Programme (SCEP). While this is an outstanding grant the overall cost of Phase 1 of the Development Project as described above is a major undertaking. To progress this development, we need to back up this great funding with community funding and no doubt we will achieve our goals through your help which will benefit the community for many years into the future.

You can assist in the following manner.

The successful delivery of this Phase One Project will require the support within the parish of Castlelyons. We are seeking support from individuals in the community through a five-year direct debit programme for a minimum of €250 per annum. The club has recently received a Certificate of Approval as a qualifying Sports Capital Project from the Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport. Therefore, should you donate €250 or more, the club can receive a tax refund from the Revenue Commissioners, thereby increasing the size of your contribution to the project. There are different options open to NON–PAYE workers. Likewise, if you are not able to contribute this amount this is much very much understood, and any assistance will be appreciated.
