Anger over move to increase pitch fees

by Gazette Reporter

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
