PUM Update


I'm delighted to report that the reconstruction of PUM is now complete (see attached pic) Certainly all those Novenas' paid off as the weather was very kind to us especially over the last two weeks.

      I'd like to pay a special thanks to all who worked extremely hard to make this happen within a tight time frame. Our principle contractor DarGolf together with consultant Richard Hayden worked many a long evening with Frank Moran and myself to ensure all aspects of project was professionally delivered. The attention to detail by both was exemplary. Also two other key contractors, ACE Fencing and Connacht Sportsnets worked within very specific deadlines to deliver a very high standard of finish on both boundary fence and netting.
      However I cannot let this opportunity pass without mentioning the excellent goodwill and support from our neighbors both in Westbourne and Cremorne. Without their full support this project could not have happened and the club will be forever grateful. On behalf of all Ballyboden St Enda;s and the wider community can I say a big 'Thank You'.
     Finally its now up to all our members to respect this very valuable resource. With seeding now complete we would hope to re-open pitch early summer. However its critical to allow growth to fully develop over next few months undisturbed. Please be vigilant and prevent anyone from accessing the pitch even to collect a ball. It will be to all our benefit in the long term.
Again thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding during the development.
John Ryan
Chairman, Development Committee

Páirc Uí Mhurchú update

As many of you are now aware considerable progress has been made in the realignment/levelling and re seeding of PUM. The appointed contractor, DarGolf, has been working long hours trying to ensure we get seeding in September. However the weather is starting to beat us and we need minimum of one fine week to get key elements of work done. We cannot continue in broken weather as the soil needs to be very fine to guarantee a proper grading. Anyone who has a direct line to the man above please make that call !!

In meantime we thought would be good to share some of the technology used. There is a video on our Facebook page (here) of the laying on the lateral drains which are approx 5m apart across the width of the pitch. In one movement the soil is extracted by digging a very narrow channel using blades on a pulley system onto adjacent trailer,the drain pipe in fed through mechanically and the p gravel immediately covers the drain. All done extremely neatly and with the minimum amount of soil extracted. Very impressive !Traditionally this would be a over a week's work with JCB's etc and much more soil taken but all done in less than 2 days .

Again apologies to all members for the inconvenience but unfortunately the work is very much weather dependent.

1916 Commemorations - Sponsorship

Seisiún Sensations

Joe Johnston and his crew took their Summer break last Monday after another very successful Seisiún. The variety of music and songs was excellent and the versatility of the performers was outstanding. Compliments all round to the musicians, singers and dancers on their performances during the year and and everyone is looking forward to their return in September. These monthly Monday night sessions have grown in popularity and the club is extremely grateful for the support of so many people who attend. ¨They have made a massive contribution to our Centenary celebrations¨said Coiste Comórtha an Chéid Chair John Kirwan.

Many of the performers are new to playing music but under Joe's teaching they have made massive strides - interested? then contact Joe on 087 9828769.
