Grounds Development Fundraiser

Liam Mellows GAA Club
Over the last decade, with the support of the entire Liam Mellows family and local business community, we have been fortunate to develop and expand the club’s grounds in Ballyloughane. As a growing club and in order to provide the best facilities for current and future members, we intend investing a further €725,000 over the next 12 months and we need your support to do this! Liam Mellows has purchased an additional 4.2 acres of land adjacent to our existing grounds in Ballyloughane.

Through the existing revenue and the repayment capacity available to the Club (including the Astroturf pitches), we can fund €550,000 cost of the works through a combination of borrowings and grants already secured. However, we need your help to help fund the €172,000 purchase cost of the land. All donors will be acknowledged on a “Donor Recognition Plaque”, to be erected at the approach to the new pitch.
