Derg AC - Athletics Training Facilities & pitch

As a result of the increased membership in athletics, field sports and usage of Clarisford Park, a need was identified for a greater capacity for athletics training facilities and natural playing surface facilities. Clarisford Ltd, Derg AC and Ballina Killaloe RFC adopted a collaborative approach to develop a natural turf pitch training area surrounded by a 4 lane 200m athletics track, throws area, long jump area and a 120m sprinting area including flood lighting. The development will complement existing facilities & usage at Clarisford Park & build on the 3 core values of Sport & Recreation, Quality of Life & Collaboration & Partnership. Planning Permission for the development was secured in July 2017 from Clare County Council (Ref: 17/99)
