The long-awaited redevelopment of the Kildare GAA Grounds in Newbridge took a major step forward yesterday, with the signing of a contract with The Elliott Group for the reconstruction of St. Conleth’s Park.
Construction will commence on Monday March 27th and will continue for a period of 18 months.
The Grounds will be completely closed during construction and reopening is anticipated in time for the County Finals of 2024.
The Project includes the complete demolition of the existing stand and dressing room block to be replaced by a new entrance plaza, a new 3000 seat stand which will house dressing rooms, officials changing rooms, Club Kildare Lounge, multi-purpose rooms and shops.
The pitch will have state of the art floodlighting and the full capacity of the newly developed Grounds is expected to be circa 15,000.
