Football Club €500k two-storey clubhouse plans get the green light

PLANS for a new two-storey clubhouse for Kilnamanagh AFC have been given the green light by South Dublin County Council.

As previously reported in The Echo, the club plans to develop a state-of-the-art clubhouse on Treepark Road at a cost of approximately €500k.

The football club has over 500 members, and its senior side and women’s teams have grown substantially over the years.

However, a lack of facilities has meant that their teams had to share toilets with the local community centre.

The grant of planning permission is welcome news in the club, as it means they will now have their own facilities after a successful fundraising drive for the development of the clubhouse.

Last March, the club held a fundraiser called Run for Rockets, where participants were invited to donate a minimum of €5 and run, scoot, cycle or walk as much as they could throughout the month.

The club raised over €25,000 as a result of the fundraiser, which will go towards the development of the new clubhouse.

The proposed facilities in the clubhouse include dressing rooms, toilets, a referee room, a club shop, a treatment room, and an external strength and conditioning area.

South Dublin County Council granted permission for the development of the clubhouse last Thursday, November 11.

In a post on their Facebook page, Kilnamanagh AFC stated: “Kilnamanagh AFC is delighted to announce that the club has received full planning permission for our new state-of-the-art training facility!

“We would like to thank all of our club volunteers who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to get us to this point.”

A prize draw for a Suzuki car is currently being held to raise funds for the club. For more information, visit
