Update: Planning permission granted for new clubhouse and widening of pitch to 'near croke park dimensions'. Great news, and the beginning of a hugely positive step.

The tight pitch in Newbridge , in my opinion, has not helped us at all in last 10 years. It has evened things up for of lot of average teams . An example would be when we almost got beaten V Antrim in 2010. Following week we skint them on big hurling pitch that was Casement Park. I think we play better on OMoore Park and Navan. Certainly pitch in Conleths is not good preparation for Croke Park. Be great to see the place touched up properly.

Agree. We seem to play better away from home these days, and struggle in conleths.

Would it cost a lot to stick a run-of-the-mill roof over a terrace or two? Never understand why GAA grounds never bother. (Also never understand why GAA grounds always knock the existing stand to build a new one, rather than building it across from existing stand and having two, although in our case I get the space and light issues with houses against far terrace.)

With the houses behind the terrace planning permission would be difficult as a roof would be very high in relation to the houses cutting off sun & light, just as planning was refused for lights on those grounds............ So stand & roof probably have to be on the other side..............

I often thought why they never roofed the Town End Terrace. Always a great view from that side and a roof would make it more attractive to stand on! Just picture the terrace behind the goal in Nowlan Park - all roofed!

On the opposite end - Athgarvan / Kilcullen end, there is absolutely no view of the pitch from that side. Too low and too far away from pitch itself. Hopefully by altering the dimensions of the field they intend to bring the pitch closer to that end and breaking down the block walls that surround the field!
