New location, new pitch
After many years without a home, this year Gorey Hockey Club has secured lands from Wexford County Council at Creagh, Gorey for the development of their own pitch and clubhouse.
This is the culmination of many years of work from many different people. But we are delighted to finally arrive at this point. This exciting development will be a shared use facility between the schools in the area. (St Joseph’s Primary school, Gorey Educate Together and Creagh College). They will have access during school hours to use as they wish for a variety of games, PE and sporting activities. It will also be available to other community groups and rented out for other sports when not in use for hockey. Planning for this development is well under way. And focus has now turned to raising the necessary funds to make this happen. This facility will be funded through a combination of fundraising by the clubs and schools, a loan and sports capital grants. We have made a great start to the fundraising efforts but still have a long way to go. All help is greatly appreciated. This will be a phased development.
This will be a phased development.
This will focus on construction of a full size astroturf pitch and all necessary siteworks complete with welded mesh fencing.
This will involve the erection of Floodlighting. This will extend the times that the facility can be in use and will also allow the facility to be rented out for soccer etc in the evening when not in use for hockey. I will also allow for training in the evening during winter months.
This will involve the construction of the clubhouse with changing rooms and viewing area.
