Parkville FC’s pitch redevelopment plans received a major endorsement today via a €62,421 euro allocation under the 2021 Sports Capital Programme. This allocation paves the way for a much-needed drainage and redevelopment of the Club’s home ground at Knockalisheen.
Welcoming the news, the Club’s interim Chairman Liam Treacy said “This grant represents the largest investment in our Club to-date and I particularly want to acknowledge the support of Cathal Crowe TD who championed our efforts and also Niall Ward who spearheaded our application. This is a great day for all our Club members, families and the wider community and we are extremely grateful to Minister Chambers for visiting us at Knockalisheen and listening to our plans.”
Parkville FC’s Pitch & Equipment Manager Colm Prenderville, who will lead the Pitch Redevelopment Project, added “With demands on the construction sector and rising costs, we will make every effort to kickstart this exciting project as soon as possible. We look forward to our members and visitors enjoying the improved pitch and facilities at Knocklisheen in the very near future.”
