Empower Our Future: Support Our circa €300K Full-Size Astro Pitch Expansion Proposed at St Joseph’s AFC 


The Vision:

  • Transform the current Pearse Park astroturf into a full-size pitch to counter the unpredictable weather impacting our boys and girls football activities.
  • Secure the longevity of our club as we celebrate our 70th anniversary in the community with this vital expansion.
  • Together, we will build a legacy that extends beyond football.


Engaging with the County Council on a phased approach:

  • Phase 1 - Current Facility Upgrade: Partnering with Patterson's Contractors appointed by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council for the initial relaying and modernisation of the existing astro facilities.
  • Phase 2 - Full-Size Proposed Expansion: Planning the comprehensive expansion to a full-size pitch ideally available by Summer 2025 at cost of circa €300K.


The Need:

Strategic Imperative: This expansion is crucial not just for improvement but as a foundational element for the club's future and to aid us in delivering on our vision of having the best youth structure in Ireland.

Cost: Investment required for the full-size astro pitch is circa €300K.
