Kinvara GAA seeks approval for new pitches

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

Kinvara GAA is planning to expand their facilities with the the addition of two new all-weather pitches, and new floodlighting.

The club is seeking planning permission from the county council 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 lights would be shut off by 10pm each night, and the club says that additional parking is not needed.

The application states that a light analysis shows there will be minimal light spillage onto the Moy Road.

A decision on this planning application is due from Galway County Council by October 26.
