2015 Sports Capital Programme announcement

St Pats club has received formal approval from the Government to proceed with the sand based pitch. This is a brilliant development for the club and brings to conclusion the tender and approval process.

Thanks so much to the sub committee that came together to make this a success. The tender process involved drafting the scope of works document, interviewing the potential vendors, scoring the various tenders and making the decision on who to go with. Members of this committee included Terry Dowling, Paddy Guinan, Christy McAllister, Paul O’ Neill, Mick Duignan, Paul Kiernan and Brian McGrath.

The potential vendors themselves commented on the high skill set this group had. Thanks to this group for all their time and effort.  The group concluded the tender process by nominating Clive Richardson Limited as the vendor of choice.

The process quickly shifted to getting government approval. Members of the Finance committee, our Secretary, our Trustees and Grounds committee helped with this process. We would like to thank Terry Dowling, Jim O’Donohue, John Costello and Michael Reynolds in their capacity of trustees of the club for signing the requested documents. We would like to thank Alan Merriman for acquiring the clubs tax clearance certificate and Brian McGrath for providing support with the financial documents required. We would also like to thank Christy McAllister and Felim Mc Allister for doing all the running behind the scenes with the required documents. As always Elaine Downey worked tirelessly to support all the groups during this process.

Another great day for the club. We look forward to Clive Richardson delivering the pitch in 18 months time working closely with our grounds committee.

Capital Club 250

Capital Club

The CC250 Club has been a huge success thus far but we are only at the half way point. Below is a bullet point brief on where things stand currently and as you can see progress is ongoing and the potential is endless. We need to finish the job now and encourage a wider spread and uptake to really take advantage of what we feel will be THE gamechanger in the club’s capital development.

  • We have over €20,000 raised so far
  • We have 123 people committed to Capital Club 250, most of whom are signed up on a monthly basis
  • We managed to secure an interest free loan to add to the funds that we have raised ourselves
  • The Club submitted an application for a grant from the Government ahead of the deadline last month.  We are in very good shape.  It’s now a matter of crossing fingers and hoping that the grant will come through.  If it does (we will know in September), we will be starting construction of our All Weather Astro Training Facility towards the end of the year or early in 2018
  • We are almost half-way to our target of 250 families contributing
  • Together we’re transforming the club and together we’re going to leave a fabulous legacy for the young people of Donabate and Portrane
  • Remember, €5 per week, the price of two cups of coffee – “two cups for the kids”
