The project, with a budget of nine million euro, will consist of four full sized, flood-lit pitches and a smaller training pitch. One of the full sized pitches will be an all-weather synthetic pitch.

The complex will include a pavilion to accommodate ten changing rooms and rooms for physio, referees and meetings and a dining area. There will also be a covered seating stand.

The facility is intended to be a national centre of excellence for Gaelic games.

Construction is expected to take just over a year.

Roisin Bennett of Reddy Charlton advised the GAA on the property aspects of the transaction and Deirdre Ni Fhloinn and Paul Keane advised on procurement and contractual issues.
