NEW Lanesborough Astro Turf Pitch

€11,470 of €80,000 goal

Raised by 206 people in 9 months
Created September 28, 2018
The Lanesborough-Ballyleague area BADLY needs an all weather Astro soccer pitch. The present field at the Community College provides a field for nearly 200 boys and girls to play football every year but it is very wet and needs to be drained . Now a local committee has been formed to do the job but we need YOUR support. Ballyboro Soccer club is applying for a sports capital grant on October 15th and we need 5 per cent of the project cost to start with. We will have to submit our bank statement with the application. We have the support of the Community College, all who use the pitch and the ETB. The project is costed at 200,000 Euro so we need to raise 10,000 Euro in 2 weeks and we can do it only one way - with the support of ALL parents and all the older lads and ladies who will also be using the new astro pitch so please PLEASE help us out here with a contribution - no matter how small . If 500 people gave 20 euro each we would be there but we will accept ALL donations gratefully - OR if you're in Lanesboro at any stage please call to Joe O’Brien in the corner shop or Alan Farrell in the Yacht bar to make a donation.
UPFATE: Our withdrawal plan to get the funds from the campaign to the pitch project: We have now reached our first target & have transferred your funds to the club account
The funds will go towards the ground works in phase 1 of the project

THANK YOU  From the committee:  Jason Fallon, Stephen Rooney, Eddie Kelly, Seamus Sorohan, Karl Crawford, Mark Tarmey, Lee Cullen, Ann McGloin, Ronnie Johnston, Eamon Bolger, Kevin Connaughton, John Tynan, Ciaran Mullooly, Carol Donlon, Kieran Feeney. We need more help on the committee . ALL help & suggestions welcome E mail us at : ballyboroastropitchcommittee@gmail.com

FOR ALL Past Pupils of Lanesborough Tech

Are you a past pupil of Lanesborough Vocational and Technical School or its successor the Lanesborough Community College? Did you or your children or grand children attend the school at Knock on the Ballymahon road out of Lanesborough over the years?

If the answer is YES to that question, then your support is now urgently needed for a major campaign to give the modern day school an all weather astro turf football pitch for the first time.

Every year the students at the school in Knock, Lanesborough experience difficulties with flooding and water-logging of the old grass pitch inside the running track when the heavy rainfall hits, which is why a new committee is presently fundraising to build a new state of the art astro turf pitch there and drain and re-surface the old grass pitch.
This is an appeal to past pupils of 'the Tech' and Lanesborough Community college to help us raise match funding to build the new facility at a cost of over 250,000 Euro.

In return for your support, the name of every past pupil and donor will be published in a new Souvenir Brochure Journal that will be made available on Saturday June 15th, 2019 at special celebratory function as part of the Ballyboro Oskar Night ceremony in the Longford Arms Hotel. Your name will also be recorded on a special sign to be erected at the school. Donations are welcome now. For details call John Tynan at 087 6221894 or Ciaran Mullooly at 087 2433201. You can post your donation directly to Ann McCormack, Treasurer, Ballyboro Football club, Cloontuskert, Lanesborough, county Longford or e mail: ballyboroastropitchcommittee@gmail.com
