Construction of Castleisland’s first astro-turf pitch begins

Construction is to begin on Castleisland’s first artificial turf playing pitch this week.

The sod has been turned at the Tonbwee site and work is to get underway in the coming days.

Contractor Sean Kelly from Ballydesmond will construct the FAI-spec pitch at Castleisland Community College and it is due to be completed by late October.

The development is a collaboration between Castleisland AFC and the local secondary school.
