Armagh GAA unveils new County Training Facility plans

Launching a new 3-year vision for Armagh GAA

Armagh GAA recently launched its new Strategic Plan for 2017-2020 ‘Is Féidir Linn le Chéile’ (‘Together We Can’).  The Strategic Plan contains a host of ambitious proposals to improve infrastructure and facilities, develop coaching practices to the highest standard, enhance competitions and culture, implement a strategy for increasing the number of referees and expand the vision for good governance.

Paul McArdle (Armagh GAA Chairman) said; “The stated outcomes in our Strategic Plan are ambitious, but achievable and are underpinned by our focused vision for Armagh.  I am confident that together we can deliver for Armagh GAA as a whole.  We have a vision of where we need to be and this is strengthened by the great family of clubs, members and officers who continually support our County and will assist in the implementation of this plan over the next three years.  We have identified a number of key themes, one of which is improving our infrastructure and facilities, and this is reinforced by plans to develop a new County Training Facility strategically located in Portadown.  The proposed development will enhance the existing facilities at St. Malachy’s Hurling Club on the Moy Road.”

Padraig Haughey (Armagh GAA Development Officer) added: “This £2.5m investment will provide facilities which will cater for all our County teams and academy squads, and provide a further option for competitive club games across all codes. The new 20-acre facility will include 3-full size floodlit grass pitches, spectator stand, ball wall and gym with adjoining changing facilities. I am delighted that our Clubs endorsed the plans for the new facility at the County Committee Meeting on Tuesday night.”
