Fitzgerald Lends her Support to Towers Launch Campaign

Local Fine Gael Senator Frances Fitzgerald was on hand on Saturday night to support Clondalkin’s Round Towers as they launched their plans for a €700,000 development including a floodlit all weather pitch.

“I was delighted to be part of the launch on last weekend in Round Towers. It’s a really exciting venture that will be prove a fantastic resource for the local community as well as members of the club and young people throughout Clondalkin,” said Senator Frances Fitzgerald.

“The GAA Club has secured €450,000 from the National Lottery and the GAA Leinster Council but will need to raise another €250,000 in order to realise this ambitious proposal,” continued Frances Fitzgerald.

Dublin’s former Football Manager Paul Caffrey was joined by Dublin hurlers David O’Callaghan and Liam Rushe, from nearby Palmerstown, in a show of support for the club at the event.

“The club is aiming to deliver quality training and playing facilities for its members. The club has a record of over a hundred years of community involvement and will be developing its new facilities right here in the heart of Clondlakin,” continued Frances Fitzgerald.

The future of Round Towers is intrinsically linked to the youth of Clondalkin and the provision of an all weather training pitch, skills wall and quality playing surface will enable young people to develop their playing and social skills in a safe, state of the art environment.

“The Round Towers is a prominent feature in Clondalkin’s community and I will continue to support the club as it develops,” concluded Senator Frances Fitzgerald.
