It’s that time of the year again to get registration and membership completed for all our existing and new members, last years membership night was a tremendous success with the registration of 170 youth members and 270 adult members who all availed of the various membership packages we introduced for the first time.
2020 was an extremely difficult year for everyone but the club enjoyed great success at all levels with the highlight being Seamus Flanagan bringing home to his club and parish his second All-Ireland medal in 3 years.
Off the field of play unbelievable progress has been made mainly by the hard working fields committee who have carried out a number of projects to help improve our facilities, reclaiming of the land behind the bottom goals, installing a new footpath to the stand, install new perimeter railing around the pitch, replacing the chutes and downpipes on the complex building and installing new drainage pipes and the installation of a wheelchair accessible toilet at the rear of the complex and upgrading the floodlighting to the pitch and general electrics within the complex.
Jan 2021 saw the start of construction of our ball wall and astro turf facility which is due to be completed by the end of April, this project could not have progressed without the generous support of our members and the help of the ladies football club whose Split the Pot weekly fundraiser is contributing towards the completion of the state of the art facility which we can all be very proud of.
With the completion of the boundary wall in the next few weeks at the back of the viewing area up to the Stand for the safety of everyone and giving extra protection from the elements, the proposed erection of a shop/kiosk inside the pedestrian gate and the planned erection of driver awareness speed signs on both sides of Coolyroe and install fixed bollards along the verge of the car park parallel with the road, will make Coolyroe a safer place for everyone especially our younger members.
With the need for everyone within our community to keep fit, healthy and active we have applied for planning permission and a Sports Capital grant to install a fully flood lit walkway around the perimeter of Coolyroe which will be of benefit to everybody within our community ,young and old to avail of.
We need the help and support of everyone in our club and beyond to keep the club vibrant and progressive and your continued support through our membership packages, lotto ,Club Limerick Draw and the Ladies Football Split the Pot is now needed more than ever and is greatly appreciated, which will help us to continue with the further development of our facilities and the day to day running of the club.
A registration/membership day may not be possible this year due to Covid restrictions so we will make the membership packages available and these can be paid on line through Standing Order or bank transfer or by contacting any of the Club officers below for further information.
