The Munster Council of the GAA have agreed a deal with Griffin Brothers Contracting Limited to build a new Headquarters for the officers and staff of Munster GAA at Annacotty, County Limerick.
The new facility which covers 10,000 square feet is expected to be opened next summer and will be the focus point for all GAA activities in the province. Apart from the football and hurling coaching and admin officers, the new building will also house officers from Handball, Ladies Football and Camogie.
It is expected that the project will provide work for up to15 people during it’s construction phase. Munster GAA Chairman Sean Walsh said: “Today’s event comes at the end of the comprehensive tendering process. We are delighted to officially begin the task of constructing what will be an iconic building to serve the needs of Munster GAA in to the future.”
Ger Griffin, Managing Director of Griffin Brothers Contracting Ltd said that he was proud that his company had been chosen for such a high profile and ground breaking development. He said his company were happy to work with the GAA again, following on from their work in redeveloping Fitzgerald Stadium in 2009.
