Our Home “Pairc Dungarbhain”

Despite all the championship glories our club attained down through the decades the burning ambition of owning our “own home” remained tantalisingly unfulfilled.

Then, ironically, a decision of Government opened up the opportunity which culminated in the official opening of Pairc Dun Garbhain” on Saturday 13th August 1994 by the then President Mr Jack Bootman.

It was in early 1988 that the Government of the day directed the Industrial Development Authority to dispose of amounts of its landbank that were regarded as “surplus to requirements”. Included in this category was twenty two and a half acres at Clogherane.

The land was to be sold by public tender, and our then Executive Committee saw the opportunity to acquire ideally suitable land for development into playing grounds within a stone’s throw of the town itself.

Our tender in the sum of £85,550 was duly submitted, and after weeks of anxious waiting came the news we had all been waiting for – its acceptance.

The major development work began in June 1990 including extensive drainage, and the levelling of the lands. The laying out and seeding of all three fields followed and that painstaking work was satisfactorily completed by the end of September 1990. The new “Pairc Dun Garbhain” was slowly, but ever so surely, taking shape.

Throughout 1991 the visual evidence of the splendid venue we have today was abundantly present. In the final month of that year the next phase of the development was ready for take-off – the construction of our resplendent clubhouse and ancillary facilities which was completed in April 1992.

Since then work has been carried out on all three pitches at different stages in the intervening period with the latest developments including the creation of an all weather juvenile pitch complete with floodlighting and the installation of a silt drainage system in the middle pitch along with the erection of match standard floodlighting system (350 Lux).

Further development is planned within the next year which will include the erection of a hurling wall which will incorporate a syntaetic training area and floodlighting along with the erection of stop netting and poles on both adult pitches.

The total investment on “Pairc Dun Garbhain” has now exceeded €1,000,000. Even by today’s inflated standards this is a very significant level of investment, but it has given us a playing complex second to none, and one that will stand as a lasting monument to the very many people who made it possible.

About Dungarvan GAA Club

Dungarvan GAA Club was affiliated to the Gaelic Athletic Association on June the 1st 1885 - the first club in Waterford to do so. Through thick and thin, good times and bad, we have stayed the pace, and to-day we are the oldest - and I dare say the best - club in the county. We stand uniquely alone as the only club in the Decies to have won county championships in every grade from Under 12 up to senior in both codes.
