Developing Facilities in Galway
Castlegar GAA Club in Galway is an ambitious and progressive club that as part of its future plans has developed an indoor arena for all its members and the local community to benefit from.
The innovation of an indoor facility for GAA sports, and others, means more participation by children and adults of all abilities and those with additional needs. It offers a safe environment that can be used all year round.
To deliver for the community, the Club are running Win a Home in Salthill Galway to meet the financial challenges associated with the developments. Your support for Win a Home in Salthill Galway not only gives you an extraordinary chance to win a home in Salthill Galway but also contributes to the development of top-class sports facilities for all.
Sport has the power to change the world.
Its has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.

Castlegar GAA are leading the way for sports clubs with a new million-euro state-of-the-art indoor arena, which was completed under Phase 1 of the project in September 2019.
Boasting an area of 54 metres by 27 metres – and a height of eight metres – the facility has already proved hugely popular, particularly in times of inclement weather.
“Galway camogie has played matches on it and the Galway senior hurlers have run drills on it. “, says project manager Mike Herwood.
“It has been a great success all winter for ourselves and for other clubs around Galway who have used it. It is of a very high standard.”
Along with the various hurling and camogie teams in Castlegar, from underage to senior, other Galway sporting clubs also use the arena, as have Galway’s senior hurling and camogie teams.
