The Development : The reason for the Draw
Shortly after Joe Pat Prunty completed the expansion and upgrading of the main pitch at St. Mary’s Park almost twenty years ago, the Faughs Committee realised that the one field which had served the club well for over 50 years was not sufficient to cater for the ever-growing number of players and teams into the future.
Monaghan Co. Council, who owned the land adjacent to St. Mary’s Park, was approached with a view to acquiring enough land to develop a second playing field. In 2019 over €100,000 was raised to purchase the 7 acres required to begin the next phase of the development of St. Mary’s Park which the club needed to ensure its continued expansion.
It is hoped that this stage of the upgrading of St Marys Park will be completed in 5 phases:
Phase 1 - 2020 (complete)
Phase 2 – 2021
Phase 3 – 2022
Phase 4 – 2023
