Transforming Dreams into Reality: Astro pitch project update. 

Here’s an update on our state of the art new pitch construction progress: We’ve made significant headway in preparing the ground, laying the foundation & all the complex engineering works that come with the groundworks. Many thanks to Karol Curran, Headford & his super team for their meticulous attention to detail in the sub base installation. Thanks also to our contractors PST for their expertise & super execution of this project to date. The next phase involves installing the shockpad & artificial grass surface to make this pitch a reality.  

At this stage, we wish to thank the many people who have supported us financially in buying sods to help us achieve our goal!  We sincerely thank the following who have matched donor funding by donating €1000: Peter Kelly Construction Services, Doonane; Porter Cooling Services, Gurteen; PST Sport; Western PostForm, Ballinasloe; Loftus Building & Civil Engineering, Garbally; Glanua, Loughrea; Burkes of Colemanstown & our latest sponsor: The Cellar Bar, Galway. 

The construction of this pitch requires significant financial resources and while Sports Capital Grant has provided very welcome but only partial funding, a significant loan has been granted, other monies have been raised through other fundraising, but there remains a shortfall that needs to be raised. This Sponsor a Sod fundraiser will allow the works to be completed plus help meet our significant loan commitments. To bring this project to completion, we’re reaching out to our community, supporters & members for your financial support.  If you wish to help us see this extraordinary project completed in a little country village for everyone to enjoy, please support our Sponsor a Sod for €50 on our iDonate fundraising campaign here: & share our fundraising efforts on social media; every bit counts! 

Your contribution will directly impact the quality of this facility and benefit our area for years to come. Let’s come together and make this playing pitch that valuable asset for our community. Your support ensures that we can provide this top-notch facility all year round for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for being part of this exciting venture!
