GAA pledge to Na Fianna as work on Metro Link will hit pitches
The GAA is concerned about the disruption to Dublin’s GAA community due to plans to requisition Na Fianna’s pitches in Glasnevin as part of the Metro Link construction due to start in two years.GAA director of communications Alan Milton said the association was following developments closely, and pledged support for the club.“First and foremost,” he told The Irish Times, “the GAA is very concerned about the implications for what is one of the biggest clubs in the country. Already Na Fianna are stretched for facilities given the size of their membership and number of teams. We will be giving the club every support while they ascertain the precise impact of the proposal on their facilities and the community.“It has come as a particular shock that the club was only informed two days before the official launch of the project.”
