Kilkenny GAA club to move home as exciting new plans are given green light
A Kilkenny GAA club has been granted planning permission for its ambitious new development.
The plans will see Carrickshock GAA moving from its tradition home in which will see the club leave its traditional home in Hugginstown to Ballcoam in Stoneyford.
Carrickshock GAA made the application In January of this year. At the time the club told KilkennyNow.ie the new grounds were needed to address the need to cater for its growing numbers of both male and female players.
Under the new development, two pitches, a main playing pitch and a second training pitch – as well as an all-weather synthetic playing pitch incorporating a ball wall and fencing – will be constructed.
All the pitches will be covered by floodlighting. Carrickshock’s new clubhouse will have new dressing rooms, meeting room, kitchen, gymnasium and spectator toilets.
A spectator stand will also be constructed at the club’s new grounds.
