Sinn Féin councillor for Rosemount Mickey Cooper has welcomed a commitment from Doire Colmcille GAC that they will do whatever is possible to make their new facilities available to other sports once completed.
The local GAC club are currently completing work to their new pitch at Lowry’s Lane which will also incorporate changing and associated facilities.
Colr. Cooper was commenting after meeting with club representatives to ask for their facilities to be made available to the wider community especially younger residents in the Rosemount and Glen Road area. He said he was pleased with the positive response from the club:
Speaking to the Journal yesterday afternoon Colr. Cooper said he was delighted with the progress the club were making and said their promise to open the facilities to other associations was excellent news.
“I was delighted to hear of the steady progress being made in construction work and the willingness of the team to make the facility available for use by the wider community,” said Colr. Cooper.
“I was also impressed to hear that the club is already developing further bids to install a 3G pitch at the site on Lowry’s Lane which will further increase the sporting infrastructure in the area.”
Colr. Cooper promised to remain in contact with the club until the work is completed and also said he was looking forward to working with them to further develop the local community.
“I will remain in close contact with the club and work with them to develop programmes which will allow all residents of Rosemount and the Glen to avail of this fantastic new facility.”
