Munster GAA has contributed almost €5 million to physical and infrastructure projects across the province over the last three years. This figure has been bolstered by over €2 million in Central Council funding.
Much of this money has been granted towards pitch redevelopments including drainage schemes and also towards pitch Sanding projects. The benefits of this policy were evident last Autumn. Despite terrible weather conditions the majority of Munster Club championships were played on their scheduled dates.
However Munster GAA grants were only one factor in ensuring that pitches were playable. The most important contribution was made by the many volunteer groundsmen and women across the province. To provide additional support to these people the Munster GAA Physical Development sub-committee have produced a pitch maintenance manual – see link below.
