DOLPHIN PARK REDEVELOPMENT NEWS
29-10-2016

Templeogue Synge Street GAA Club is pleased to announce details of an ambitious redevelopment of the clubs home ground at Dolphin Park.

Our club is one of the fastest growing GAA units in the Capital with men’s and ladies football teams at every level from senior to juvenile and with a nursery academy of more than 150 children between the ages of 4 and 7 and a membership of more than 1,000.

Inspired by the efforts of Denis Bastick and Eoghan O’Gara flying the flag for TSS on Dubs duty and conscious of the need to maximise the club’s potential, new plans have been drawn up that will see them significantly revamp and enhance their facilities.

The Club owned facilities at Dolphin Park has long been renowned for its two spacious adult playing pitches which lie back to back. These will remain a key feature as will the juvenile pitches that criss-cross them.

However, the sale of a small area of land elsewhere on the site will enable the club to erect a new badly needed state of the art facility and car park.

The new building will house six large dressing rooms with shower facilities as well as referee room, equipment rooms, a kitchen, meeting room and a weights room with improved car parking facilities.

Club Chairman, Alan O’Brien, believes the redevelopment of the Dolphin Park facility is a crucial part of the Templeogue Synge Street expansion plan.

He said: “The club is enjoying a period of major growth with fantastic numbers coming and playing with us at all levels.

“Those numbers in turn put a demand on our resources and we feel the time has come for Dolphin Park to have a facility that is truly fit for purpose and is something that we can all be proud of.

“It has always been a long term aim of TSS to have a proper club facility in place and the time has come for us to take that step.

“We are enormously proud of the contribution that the club has made to Dublin GAA in recent times in the likes of Denis and Eoghan at senior All-Ireland winning level and also Niall Scully winning minor and U21 titles.

“We intend to drive the club forward on and off the field and hopefully have more representatives in sky blue in the years to come.”

Templeogue Synge Street have been in existence since 1999 when Templeogue and Synge Street Past Pupils joined forces. They achieved senior status winning the intermediate league in 2007 and intermediate championship in 2008.

It is hoped that, upon approval, the construction of the new facility will begin early in the New Year and be ready before the end of 2017.
