Connemara Rugby Club plans new training facilities

Galway Daily sport Cliodhna Moloney Rugby Player of the Year

Connemara Rugby Club is planning further upgrades to its grounds in Clifden, with plans submitted to the county council.

The rugby club is seeking planning permission for a new running track on its grounds at Ardbear, Clifden, as well as new training paddocks.

The club is also seeking approval for a new vehicular entry/exit onto the R341 road, as well as a new internal access road and parking.

A Natura Impact Statement was submitted with this application due to the proximity of the site to the Connemara Bog Complex SAC.

Galway County Council is due to make a decision on this planning application by October 19.

The last upgrade to Connemara RFC was a new playing pitch granted approval in December of 2018.
