Moyle District Council will invest £25,000 on the Quay Road Sports Complex multi use surface. The investment comes following severe winter damage due to the weather. The damage is preventing surface water from draining off and has forced the facility’s closure several times this winter.
Independent Councillor Padraig Mc Shane who requested the work be carried out said;
“The artificial surface is by far the most utilised playing surface under the control of Moyle District Council. It has allowed the growth and development of hockey in the town alongside Gaelic Games. The nature of a surface enables a range of sports to be played on it. This allows for increased use of the area due to it’s diverse nature and the area is playable all year round.
“Over a dozen camogie teams use the facility on a Sunday morning to play a winter competition. In the past a competition at this time of year would have been beyond the ambition of most managers. Soccer and athletics ensure the complex is in constant demand day and night”.
