Portlaoise GAA have launched plans to develop its facilities in Rathleague, under the brand identity ‘TOWN25’.
The initiative was approved by members at the club’s recent AGM and will see a new clubhouse, walking track and floodlights constructed along with pitch upgrades.
Prior to the AGM there was a consultation process for club members to give their thoughts on priorities and what a proposed development should include.
This was followed up by an information night for members where feedback was welcomed.
The club is taking a phased approach, with the long-term vision to deliver a fully functioning and modern facility for its members and supporters.
Phase 1 includes a new clubhouse and walking track, as well as floodlight and pitch upgrades.
Speaking at the AGM, club chairperson Eamon Fennelly said: “This is a very important and exciting phase in the club’s history.
“The facilities will benefit players and supporters, present and future, and will be a great addition to the club, the town, and the wider community.”
