Galway Daily sport Planning refused again for Oughterard sports facilities

Clifden GAA Club are awaiting approval on two new all weather pitches for the club.

A planning application for the construction of two all weather pitches at the club grounds at Hospital Hill, Clifden was submitted in October.

The full development will consist of the two new pitches, associated fencing and flood lighting, as well as site works.

The gross floor area of the proposed works is 3,960sqm.

Naomh Feichin An Clochan GAA Club have been playing in Clifden for more than a century, first opening their doors in 1912.

The Clifden town GAA club was one of the first registered in Connemara, officially forming some years after organised games started taking place.

The club is names for Saint Feichin, a Roman Catholic figure associated with 7th century Ireland said to be much renowned for his athleticism.

A decision on whether to allow the development to go ahead is due from Galway County Council this week.
