Edenderry GAA notes
With growing season in full swing our ground staff have been extremely busy keeping on top of all the grass across the clubs facilities. Due to a planning delay works on the new lands are on hold but we are confident that will change in the coming weeks. In April the club received a request for Further Information from Offaly County Council. In relation to certain aspects of our planning application. In recent weeks we have been meeting with Officials from Offaly County Council in order to resolve the outstanding issues. We are pleased to announce that we have made a formal response and we are now due a decision by July 13 next. We are hopeful of a positive decision and if successful we aim to immediately set about completing works on site. This will involve the erection of new entrance, boundary fencing, goalposts, ball stops, pitch side fencing, pathways and car parking. The pitches themselves are in excellent condition and are thickening up nicely. Some of our adult teams will be using the pitches for training purposes shortly, however for health and safety reasons our underage teams won't be able to use the pitches until such time as all the works on site are complete. At this stage we are hopeful this would be before the end of the season.
