This is very welcome news for this excellent growing club located at Inch Road Bowhill Balrothery Balbriggan on 8.5 Hectares of playing grounds, astra turf playing pitches and rugby football playing fields.

There are many young people in the expanding town of Balbriggan, and more sports facilities are required for this growing young population.

Participation in sport at a young age establishes good  habits and  encourages a healthy lifestyle.

It has the added value of affording children the opportunity to socialise and have fun.

I’d like to congratulate the members and officers of the club on their Trojan efforts to see this project over the line and assure all members of the club of my continued support.

Balbriggan requires ongoing investment in sports and leisure facilities and I will continue to support that policy, along with Fingal Co Council , Said Minister James Reilly
