After a quick dress rehearsal last weekend, the low bright winter sun shone down blindingly and mixed with the winter wind to chill the spectators and cool the young players, on the last day of the first month, to reveal the glory of the new Park Celtic pitches.

Thanks must go to DLRCOCO, Robbie Maher, John Thompson and one of our parents, David O’Connell for their work in walking, measuring, drawing, marking and readying the pitches for their new year launch. While somewhat exposed to the elements, which will be super come the summer, they also provide beautiful vistas of the park playground, duck filled pond, flaura and fauna, Oh yes! and some lovely football by our young developing U9 players.
