Sinn Féin Councillor Kieran Mulholland has spoken of his delight that Loughgiel Shamrocks GAC are to receive £294,587 from Causeway Coast & Glens Council  to help fund a new sand-based pitch along with and a 3G multi-activity space and a ball wall.

Welcoming the decision, Councillor Kieran Mulholland said:

"This decision will go a long way to meeting a demand for sporting and physical activity space that council had already identified was in desperate need in the Loughgiel area.

“It’s a win-win situation as Loughgiel will now deliver a project to meet that need with minimal input required from the council after completion.  

“This award is the culmination of over three years of work since myself and Sinn Féin colleagues first met the club’s committee back in 2014.  There have been countless meeting with officers and external bodies and I’m delighted that the project can now move ahead."

North Antrim MLA Philip McGuigan said:

"The GAA, the services that it provides, and its facilities are the focal point of many communities such as Loughgiel. This investment is a testament to that fact and it is an investment that the whole community are going to benefit from."
