Project Description

The club purchased its first pitch in 1982 next to the Highbridge and developed it as money became available. The pitch and club rooms were opened on 16 October 1983 by Hugh Campion, former Chairman of Kildare County Board. The facilities were updated after that with the addition of new dressing rooms and showers.

In 2005 the club embarked on another major development plan to keep up with the growth in the local population and purchased 17-acre (69,000 m2) in the townland of Ballykelly. This new development was completed and officially opened on 16 May 2010 and consists of two adult size all-weather pitches, one floodlit and one juvenile pitch, two astro-surfaced training pitches, a sports hall, ladies’ and men’s dressing rooms, meeting rooms and car parking for 350 cars. The facility was named as Kildare Grounds of the Year for 2010.
