Local sports clubs have been hit with increased charges for letting pitches owned by Fingal County Council, while school teams will also have to pay charges following a review by the council.
Local representatives expressed disappointment this week when they received a letter from Fingal County Council outlining a review of charges for the letting of Fingal playing pitches for season 2013/14.
The letter states that the changed charges are in line with other councils, South Dublin County Council and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.
The council will be introducing a charge for the letting of pitches to clubs (GAA, Soccer and Rugby) with Juvenile teams (under 18) charged €30 per team with a maximum payment of €600 for 20 or more teams. For adult teams it is €600 per club with one adult team and €100 for each addition
