Galway Daily sport Kinvara GAA gets approval for two new all-weather pitches

Kinvara GAA Club has been given the go ahead to install two new all weather pitches and floodlights.

The county council has granted planning permission for two all-weather training pitches totaling 2,615m² with floodlights.

They also wish to erect six new 21.34m high floodlights around the existing grass pitch at the club on the Moy Road.

“The development will allow for increased usage hours of the sports facility during the winter months,” a cover letter for the application states.

The club submitted further information at the request of the council stating that the current 155 car parking spaces exceeds what is currently required, and that no additional space is needed.

Planning permission was granted for the new pitches with eight conditions, with the council stipulating the floodlights must be cowled, and can only be used until 10pm on weekdays, and 8pm on weekends.
