St Faithleachs

Progress being made in St Faithleachs GAA Developments

St Faithleachs

At the start of 2017 St Faithleachs undertook to further develop our club grounds, as part of this development a new sponsor was sourced. Gaughan Building Services are based in London and under the leadership of Mr Aaron Gaughan, are London’s leading specialists in delivering a complete solution for both domestic and commercial building services.

Gaughan Building and Property Services have sponsored the Senior Team along with a new Electronic Scoreboard on the main pitch.

A new spectator stand was also erected. There were many club members who contributed financially to this. This assistance was paramount in the early completion of the stand. Many members gave their time to the project which was overseen by Irwin Construction.

St Faithleachs are truly grateful and indebted to all those who have helped advance and better their facilities and club grounds.
