Floodlights - nearly there

Floodlights - nearly there

Great to see we are nearly there with the floodlights project in Broomfield - - All pole bases installed and cabling in. (see pic) - Generator base and fencing installed. (see pic) - Lighting columns delivered to Broomfield (see pic) - Seamus Byrne Electrical has all other plant and materials now in his stores or ready to be delivered i.e. Generator, light fittings and main panel. Unfortunately with the recent wet weather the ground is too soft (particularly on the houses side of the pitch) to erect the poles and lights as damage would be caused. - There is about 2/3 weeks work left after the Christmas to complete weather permitting

A sad day but a proud day

Last Saturday was a very sad day for for the club with the funeral of Declan Morris. It was lovely to see such a large crowd turn out to mourn Declan. St Sylvesters hurlers and U12 footballers provided a guard of honour while a number of club members also provided very fitting tributes to Declan at the funeral ceremony. Many thanks to Martin and Eddie and the staff at the club and Sportslink for looking after the mourners and thanks to Carole and the Morris's for letting us share in a very sad but proud day.

Developments in Malahide Castle

Fingal CC have communicated that they do not intend to proceed with the “Forest Adventure Area and Multi-Use Reinforced Grass Area” at Malahide Demesne. Fingal CC have stated that they plan to carry out a review of the number of short-term car parking spaces in and adjacent to Malahide Village and, if necessary, identify suitable locations for the provision of additional spaces. At this point in time we have no indication if future proposals could potentially impact upon our existing facilities. This decision has potential implications for our ambitions relating to development plans at Broomfield. We will continue to engage constructively with Fingal CC to attempt to address this matter on behalf of the membership of St Sylvesters GAA.
