Facilities workgroup
Facilities Workgroup


  • The aim of the facilities Workgroup is to formulate a plan of action to ensure that Ballyboden St Enda’s GAA Camogie and Ladies Football Club will obtain the optimum benefit from our existing facilities, and to provide for additional facilities deemed necessary for the future development goals and plans of the Club.


  • Review existing facilities provided for the club’s players and other members.

  • Examine how these compare with other clubs, both within the GAA and other codes.

  • Examine our current facilities with specific regard to their location.

  • Review current projects in light of the existing and future needs of the club.

  • Examine how, in the context of the use of our facilities, we can improve our involvement with the local communities.

  • Review future needs

Facilities workgroup1
Facilities Workgroup


  • Existing Facilities:

    In looking at existing facilities, we propose to examine:

    • Pitch development, ongoing maintenance, training facilities, toilet and dressing room facilities.

    • Clubhouse facilities, to include the bar, function rooms, meeting rooms and office and secretarial needs.

    • See how our current structure compares with other clubs.

    • Analyse the costs in providing the club with these facilities.

    • Examine current projects in the light of our existing and future needs.

  • Location

    • We propose to examine existing facilities with specific regard to their location.

    • Have we spread our base too wide? Do we have too many locations?

    • Should we centralise our location? Is it essential for the future development goals and plans of the club?

    • Is a move to Sancta Maria from Firhouse Road a viable option?

    • What are the pluses and minuses of such a move? Cost?

    • We propose to report on the feasibility of relocation.

Actions (cont’d)

  • Future Needs

    • We must all plan for the future. But this can only be done with a careful analysis of our membership base, our finances, our ability to fundraise and a strategy or plan of action.

    • To enable the membership to agree a plan of action, we feel it is necessary to report in as detailed a fashion as possible, on our existing facilities, current capital projects, the prospect of relocation and or future requirements.

    • We propose to provide such report.

Cultural and social workgroup
Cultural and Social Workgroup


  • Develop a sense of community within the club through the organisation of a range of cultural and social activities – a one family sporting, community, cultural and social club

  • Promote Irish culture in its broadest sense

  • Assess current provision and seek views of members
