St Jude’s GAA set to light up Tymon Park
By Laura Lyne
ST JUDE’S GAA Club is set to continue its pitch development scheme with the installation of six floodlights at its pitch located at the Wellington Lane end of Tymon Park.
The club submitted a planning application for the floodlights on July 31 to the planning department of South Dublin County Council.
In the application, the club states that it intends to use the floodlights from September to April each year, and that the floodlight columns will each have a height of 21.34m.
The four corner light installations will include 10 lighting fixtures each, with the two remaining middle columns to include 13 lighting fixtures each.
Also included in the planning application is the installation of control gear for turning the lighting on and off and monitoring of the system.
Connection to the national electricity supply network is also included in the application, along with low level lighting along a currently existing path that is adjacent to the floodlit pitch.
In a statement on the club website, St Jude’s GAA said: “This is the latest stage of the pitch development scheme that has only been made possible by the generosity of the membership. We thank everyone who has signed up to date.”
The club had previously upgraded the pitch in 2014, with the erection of ball stop nets at both ends of the pitch and low perimeter fencing.
Third party submissions on the application will be accepted until September 3, with a decision on the application due from the council by September 24.
