Green light for Portumna GAA Club upgrades

Galway Daily sport Planning refused again for Oughterard sports facilities

Portumna GAA club has been given the green light from the county council to give its club grounds a facelift for spectators.

Planning permission has been granted to the GAA clubs to make improvements to the viewing experience for spectators, players, and the community.

The club plans to build a new spectator stand and dug outs for more comfortable viewing of games.

They also intend to install a new scoreboard and floodlighting, along with a perimeter walkway with lighting.

Portumna GAA Club currently has three pitches on its grounds off the Shannon Road, a Training, Junior, and Senior pitch, along with an existing walkway around the site.

Planning permission was granted by Galway County Council for the works with nine standard conditions attached.
