Rathcoole families to benefit from state of the art GAA Centre and parking for Rathcoole Park

Great news for Rathcoole’s sports enthusiasts and parents alike, the Council have announced that the new GAA Centre will open its gates next year. The development is good news for users of Rathcoole Park who will now be provided with a nearby carpark. As you know I have been fighting for a playground for Rathcoole Park for some time now and the only stumbling block was the lack of parking facilities. Now, not only will sports fans, players, parents and children be provided with state of the art GAA playing and training facilities but local families will at last be given their playground.

It is hoped that 27 acres GAA venue will be open next year and it will offer Rathcoole teams three full-size grass pitches, a full-size all weather pitch with floodlighting and changing facilities as well as carpark which will also facilitate visitors to Rathcoole Park. An access road off Stoney Lane will provide the gateway to the new €13mil GAA centre. I will be keeping the Council under pressure to deliver a playground for the families of Rathcoole, Red Gap, Saggart, Brittas and its surrounding areas.
