Pitch Repair in full swing

The students maybe gone home for summer but major work is currently under way on the playing surfaces in the Mardyke and Curaheen.

The prunty pitch (Rugby & Soccer) has been closed for the passed month as UCC grounds staff carry out maintenance and repairs that will ensure the surface survives the onslaught which will follow later on this year and early in 2017.

The GAA pitch will close this week for a month as it too receives a face lift.

Much of this work is often overlooked by players, management and spectators but is the main reason why the UCC playing pitches are among the best in the country.
