FG candidate calls for 'Community Sports Park'

Thu, Feb 15, 2024

Aisling Keogh

Local sports advocate and Fine Gael candidate for Galway City East local elections, Aisling Keogh, has called for a more collaborative effort among sporting bodies to create community shared sports facilities in Galway city and county.

Having spear headed the successful 'Misneach Le Cheile' Hockey facilities sports campaign Keogh, with the help of members of Connacht Hockey and sitting Fine Gael councillor Clodagh Higgins, dedicated over three years to ensure the inclusion of community and hockey sports facilities in the Galway City Development Plan.

As a result of that campaign Keogh feels it is time for more sporting bodies to come together to get the facilities they need. By pooling resources such as facilities, land, and grant potential, larger sporting bodies could work to include what are considered to be 'minority sports' to construct state-of-the-art combined facilities in a sports park scenario. This aim would be to attract more members and revenue into clubs while fostering a stronger sense of community engagement through sport.
