Castlepollard Hurling Club have received a LEADER grant to the value of €323,000 for the development of a two-storey extension which will include changing rooms, referee room, outdoor toilets, meeting room and training space. The development is due to begin in the coming months.
Established in 1903, Castlepollard Hurling Club is managed by a voluntary committee who oversee the clubs’ activities. This development will support future growth of the club, by engaging new members, including juveniles and adult members', particularly female members, for whom no facilities currently exist. It will also provide additional meeting and training space which will be available to the community and local voluntary groups.
With approximately 300 members, Castlepollard Hurling club and its surrounding hinterland will gain a much needed community and recreational facility which is vital for rural communities to flourish and survive.
