Planning & Development Update
An update in relation to Planning & Development from the Club Executive.
On December 16th 2019 Fingal County Council granted Skerries Harps planning permission to develop an All Weather training pitch & skills wall on our existing training area subject to a number of conditions.
This decision was subsequently appealed to An Bord Pleanála & last week we were notified that the "Grant Permission" decision by Fingal County Council was upheld subject to a number of conditions.
Thanks to our Planning & Development group & Mark G. Kelly Architects for their work getting this project through the planning process.
As we look to improve our playing facilities this is a positive outcome however there is a lot more work required in relation to funding before we can break ground on this project.
Safe Return to Gaelic Games Our Club Executive have reviewed the detailed plan issued by the GAA, Camogie Association & the LGFA just over a week ago. They are now working on putting the necessary measures in place to so that when the green light to resume is given we can do so in a safe manner while adhering to both Government guidelines & meeting the requirements set out in this plan. We would encourage our members, in particular players & parent's of our Juvenile players, to read this plan to get familiarised with the requirements. By doing so it will make the transition back easier for everyone concerned. You can access the plan by clicking on Safe Return to Gaelic Games The 3 associations are holding a Club Briefing webinar on Tuesday 16th June from 6 - 7pm which will be attended by our Covid Supervisors as well as Club Officers.

Supporting our local businesses A number of local businesses are opening again as part of the phase 2 lifting of restrictions & we would ask our members to shop local where possible. These businesses have supported our club over the years by sponsoring teams, pitch advertising, event advertising or by simply providing a raffle prize.....now is our opportunity to support them over the coming weeks & months!
The Club extends it's deepest sympathies to the Abell family on the recent passing of Anne Abell. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
