Work is continuing at Carrig Park in Fermoy on the new all-weather development. The contractors for the work, Synthi-Green Sports Surfaces Ltd, based in Ovens, have been on-site with a number of weeks.

The cost of the astroturf pitch is expected to be in the region of €140,000 to €150,000, with work expected to be finished within the next six weeks. The new facility is set to cater for the up and coming generation of soccer players in the town.

Currently the club, based just off Barrack Hill, has 14 teams and has over 100 schoolchildren in its academy. Carrig Park is already home to a number of pitches, dressing rooms, a stand and a gym facility.
