Ball Wall for the ‘Dall.

Cushendall have become the latest GAA Club to benefit from our infrastructure fund in Moyle. The fund, unique to the Council, was set up to leave a legacy in the wake of RPA and the dissolution of Moyle District Council in 2008. The Council will be part of the new Causeway Coast & Glens Super Council in 2015.

While Moyle had an outstanding history of under-funding in Gaelic Games, the opportunity to design and develop a programme that would help redress the inequality has paid dividends with all six Clubs in the District benefiting.

The latest is the Ruairi Og’s Cushendall GAC who received 20% of a £40,000 project to build a ball wall. Coaching staff recognise the benefits of these investments;

 “Hurling Walls provide a safe, accessible environment for players to develop their skills and improve their technique. The benefits of having a Hurling Wall facility within a club or school are huge, and combined with appropriate drill sets can result in a dramatic improvement in players’ skill levels over a relatively short time period.”
Paudie Butler, National Hurling Co-ordinator.
