Sligo Champion article

Excerpt from Sligo Champion June 6th 2012

A NEW astro turf pitch is being planned for Dromore West.

The local community council has lodged a planning application with Sligo County Council for construction of the pitch as well as for flood lighting, fencing, netting, minor layout alteration to an existing playground and surface finish to a car park.

The pitch is to be at the existing tennis courts on a community site at Knockaculleen, in Dromore West.

The county council received the application last week, and a decision is due by July 22nd.

Dromore West Astro Turf Pitch

Proposed Astro Turf Pitch

Astro Turf Pitch as it will look when completed

The time for change and growth is upon us…

About a year ago, a group of people got to thinking about how we could further develop our community’s amenities. There was a requirement identified for the gravel area around the Community Centre to be finished and a need for an all year round outdoor sports and recreation facility for the community. The seed was planted to develop an Astro Turf Pitch and surface the remaining gravel part of the car park at the community centre.

A sub-committee of the Community Council was formed and plans for this development were drafted. The total cost of this project is estimated at €120,000. Funding was sought from County Sligo LEADER Partnership Board and a grant of €75,000 was allocated to support this development. While the Committee is very grateful for the support of LEADER and the money apportioned will go a long way to developing this project, there is still a shortfall of €45,000 which will need to be achieved through fundraising locally.

We ask you to remember that the committee, in proceeding with this project, depends totally on the good will of YOU, a member of this community. The “Celtic Tiger” has come and gone, and we can still see him running, but as the dust settles, we are looking to the future and to a brighter day, and rightly so. This is a fantastic community that has plenty of spirit and the ability to support a project like this. We want to make all members of the community aware of the development that is taking place in the area and we are asking for your support; whether it is by giving your time to help us raise this money or supporting events and future fundraising endeavours.

Once in place, this facility will be a great benefit to the people of the area, local sport teams and clubs and we aspire that this development will further cultivate the Dromore West area.

We are confident that you will give this project your whole hearted support.
