The Astro Redevelopment is well underway with the Hurling Wall currently been built. Vision Contracting have been on site for the last number of weeks excavating and preparing the grounds and foundations for the Hurling Wall which they are erecting presently.
PST Sport will follow on over the next number of days to begin dismantling the fencing and to start their part of the project.
Their brief is the resurfacing of the 4,500 sq/m (100m x 45m) artificial pitch with SUPERB 55 high performance artificial grass carpet. Works to include new fencing and kerbing and repair to the existing netting.
The second part of their project is the installation of a 567 sq/m artificial grass ball court area on the other side of the Hurling wall.
The 'old' ball alley will remain but will couple as parking area for match days for over 30 cars.
The complex while be fully floodlit with CCTV covering the Astro and Ball Alley areas.
Works are due to finish to allow hurling to resume in January 2020.
