Installation Of New Pitch Watering System A Tremendous Success
After what has been a fantastic summer weather wise with very little rain, it is great to see the pitches in Corinthians in superb condition possibly the best ever. This has been due mainly to the hard work and dedication of our Grounds man Denis Barry but also due to the installation during the summer of a new watering system which has ensured that the pitches are in pristine condition despite the extremely dry summer and autumnal period.
The Watering system which covers all three grass pitches as well as the main grass training area encompassed the installation of Water Storage Tank, the purchase of a High Pressure Mobile Sprinkler with the necessary piping and water heads. The Investment involved though quite significant has proved a great success and should be of great benefit to the Club for many years to come.
Support from Cork County Council
We are extremely grateful for the support we received from the Cork County Council in significantly assisting in the funding of the project through their Community Grants Scheme. This support allowed the Club to go ahead with the investment and the benefits now can be clearly seen in the quality of the Club’s pitches.
With over 30 teams and catering for a membership of nearly 800, the pitches will certainly get plenty of use in the months and years ahead.
