The Carlow Centre of Excellence
It is relatively easy to say that 2018 was an incredibly positive year for Carlow GAA. At senior level our footballers and hurlers both had excellent years and took on some excellent opposition giving an excellent account on the progression of Carlow GAA in the process. We are now all too familiar with the Carlow Rising catchphrase that had taken the entire county by storm. The reality is that Carlow is rising, the work being done within our County from an underage to senior level instils hope that Carlow will continue to rise in the coming years.
At Daniel Whelan Engineering Works Ltd we are delighted to be a part of the Carlow GAA community and help clubs not only in Carlow but Nationwide, obtain the facilities they need. Taking the example of the Centre of Excellence in Fenagh, Carlow. Since the opening of these facilities we have seen some amazing games from underage to senior. We take pride in the fact that as a company, Daniel Whelan Engineering could contribute to these facilities with our Fencing division and give the facilities the professional look and feel that was needed.
Planning for the future
With the news today that Carlow GAA have sought planning permission for the construction of a new 1048m2 single storey at its Centre of Excellence training facility, this just shows the effort and determination of all involved to bring forward Carlow GAA and provide excellent facilities for all teams in the county. The proposal also includes, wash rooms, changing rooms, shower facilities, admin offices, and new fencing and turnstiles to the existing car park.
This again is testament to the hard work being done at all levels within Carlow GAA. Here at Daniel Whelan Engineering Works Ltd we are delighted to play a part in the development of our counties GAA facilities. Although we provide fencing nationwide, those jobs closer to home are always important for Daniel Whelan Engineering Works Ltd as a company proudly based in Carlow.
