The Lights are ON - message from Paddy

As part of our club’s ambitions for a sports campus in Broomfield we are delighted to confirm that the new floodlights on pitch 2 are now operational. This is a vital first step in the development of a full “all-weather” facility in Broomfield and represents an investment of almost €150k. This development has been funded by a combination of grant aid from the Sports Council and the “Gala Night” fund-raising event that was held in November 2016.

Facilities development - the beat goes on

Facilities development - the beat goes on

Continuing the great work of the past few years we are delighted to let you know that the club has successfully completed an initial application for a €150,000 sports council grant to assist in the development of a Broomfield sports campus to include a full size floodlit all weather astro training pitch. If our application is successful this funding will go in its entirety towards providing top class facilities for our kids.

Broomfield Campus Development

Broomfield Campus Development

In continuation of our quest to provide the best possible sporting facilities for our members our Facilities Development Group have documented the attached plan as illustrative of what we hope to achieve. It is pretty consistent with other plans developed over the years shows a practical roadmap for our facilities to be developed in a phased manner. We are submitting an application for Sports Grant Funding by 24th February and we wish to make members aware of the costs involved if we want to build an all-weather facility in Broomfield. An application for a grant does not commit us in any way at this stage. The plan attached is for illustrative purposes only and will undoubtedly change as we continue to engage.

Work on the Ball Wall

Work on the Ball Wall

I'm sure many you have seen the new targets painted onto the short side of the Ball Wall (see pic attached). This is as a result of the great time & effort spent by our new Facilities Group lead by Eoin Farquharson & Aidan Lillis and helped by Liam Foley. They plan to finish this project by completing the large side this Saturday (weather permitting) which will result in the closure of the large side of the wall.

Ball Wall unveiled - another good day for Syls

At a short ceremony in Broomfield last Sunday we unveiled our new Ball Wall training facility. It's been 6 years in the making but it looks like it was worth waiting for and will be a great addition to the club. Andy Kettle brought the Dublin Hurling silverware and gave a nice talk to dedicate the wall to Tim Stack, one of the men who brought hurling to Malahide and whose family gave a generous donation that got us started on this development. Andrew Stack was very impressive in the way he remembered many of the early hurling men. Syls Chairman Mel McIntyre thanked all those who supported the effort including our local politicians who worked hard for our cause, Fingal CoCo, The National Lotto and particularly Brendan Bannigan, Mick Stuart and Eddie Sullivan who learned a lot more than they bargained for about land leasing, planning laws and other aspects of development in post Tiger Ireland.

Show of force for EGM - full steam ahead

For about a nanosecond in late July we wondered could we get a 200 quorum to show up to a meeting to clear the way to draw down Lotto money for our Ball Wall development. We were sure that if we asked our members to show up that they would oblige and so it was. Over 300 people signed in at the meeting, a great show of force by St Sylvesters and the Executive Committee would like to thank you all, we know it is not always easy, and now we are ready to proceed with our next major development.
