At the first meeting of Roscommon GAA County Board in 2016 the clubs of county Roscommon agreed to the Co Management committee proposal to install a new playing pitch at Dr Hyde Park.

The County Chairman Seamus Sweeney outlined the Management Committees proposal and informed delegates that he was satisfied that he had the financial support in place to complete the project which he said was going to be the “2016 infrastructure project”.

Co Board Treasurer Seamus Maher explained that the management committee were confident that they would be in a position to fund the project after receiving commitments from GAA Headquarters in Croke Park. We will now seek tenders from contractors and move the project on as soon as we can.

We also intend developing Hyde Park as per our development plan which will see a total reconstruction of the spectator areas and the addition of much required facilities for players, patrons and officials. We will not be able to start the major development work immediately as there are planning processes to be addressed. 

Our priority is the pitch as stage one. We are working very closely with Croke Park and Connacht Council to ensure that we are in a position to do the job as soon as possible.

We look forward to working with our Fundraising and Commercial arm Club Rossie in ensuring that we have the appropriate finance in place. We are indebted to the supporters of Roscommon GAA and all members of Club Rossie for their continued financial support to Roscommon GAA.
