When we joined the League of Ireland we understood that our pitch at Stradbrook needed work carried out to improve it. The process of upgrading the pitch is a long process and was not something that could be carried out in time for the first game against Wexford Youths, which was when the below photos circulated online of our pitch.
Along with our partners Blackrock R.F.C. we have put in a huge amount of time, money and effort and there has been a huge improvement in the playing surface.
In the short space of time since our introduction to the League of Ireland, floodlights were installed, the pitch has been flattened and we have recently installed a drainage system which will all benefit the pitch in the long-term. Pictures of the pitch can be seen below.
We will continue to strive for a top class playing surface, worthy of our vision for the club and the league.
