Progress - November 2016. Phase 1.
Completion of the new grass pitch has been in progress over
the last couple of months. The new pitch surface has now been
laid and seeded, and is progressing well, and will be ready
for use in 2017.
Depending on weather conditions it is hoped that green grass
will begin shooting up soon. However, it will be the end of
next Spring before the pitch will be playable.

to be pushed forward. GAA is a big part of life in Ballycastle
and this project will be a source of great pride for everyone
involved, from coach to player, to supporter to community.
It has been designed to give the best to our players so that
in turn they can be their best for their club. We would like
to invite everyone to get involved.
