A large crowd of club and community members assembled in Galway Bay Golf Resort on Friday, 18th May for the official launch of the Rinville Sports Ground development project. Details of the proposed development of the 24 acre site were outlined by Derek Cullinane, which includes a full size all-weather 4G Astro-turf pitch and a number of sand based pitches on a site Oranmore-Maree GAA Club have just purchased in Rinville.
Adjacent to Rinville Park, the new development, which will also serve the needs of Oranmore-Maree Camogie Club and Naomh Mhuire Ladies Football Club, will also include juvenile playing pitches, a low-level illuminated walking/jogging track and state-of-the art changing facilities.
With the cost of the land alone amounting to €350,000, it is a hugely ambitious project being undertaken by the three clubs, but one that is vital to server the ever growing needs of the young playing population in the parish. A fundraising drive is now in place with further details available at www.rsgl.ie
