The Cathaoirleach of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council officially turned the sod at Oatlands College to mark the construction of the new All-Weather Pitch, writes Rachel Cunningham.

The new pitch will provide enhanced facilities for both the schools and for local clubs, primarily for GAA and soccer. 

They will also ais in ensuring that rugby and other such sports can be played in a safe manner, particularly during the winter months.

“I would like to acknowledge the positive co-operation and contributions made by the schools, the landowner, local clubs, and residents, without whom, this project would not be possible.  

“I hope that this development will lead to further sporting facilities being developed throughout the county and improved health and fitness for its users,” said Councillor Denis O Callaghan, Cathaoirleach of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. 

The new investment will include an overall pitch size of 136m x 86m, accommodating one GAA pitch, one soccer pitch and crossfield play.
