Limerick Senator Kieran O'Donnell

Limerick Senator Kieran O’Donnell welcomed the granting of €64,300 in Sports Capital Grants to Castleconnell National School for the building of an artificial all-weather pitch on the school grounds.

This was granted after the school last Friday won their appeal against the original decision which deemed the application invalid.

Castleconnell National school made a joint application with two local sports club namely, Ahane/Castleconnell/Monpellier Community Games and Ahane Camogie Club.

“I am delighted to have worked on an on-going basis with Castleconnell National School under the appeal process to secure €64,300 in sports capital grants for the building of an artificial all-weather playing surface. Mr O’ Donnell said.

“This all-weather pitch will be a great amenity for the school and fellow applicants as well as the wider sporting and community in the Castleconnell area.

“I wish to commend Castleconnell National School’s principal Richie Ryan and his committee who worked hard on this application  and I look forward to continuing to work with them on this very worthwhile project.” Senator O’Donnell concluded.
