Ladies field hockey in Glasnevin, Dublin.

Botanic was not left untouched by the recent bad storms. The high nets surrounding the entire pitch had to be fixed due to the recent high winds. It took 3,000 hooks to re-fix the nets and return the pitch to it’s pristine condition.

It has also taken great effort from our regular maintenance man, John Donnelly to sort out the pavilion and area around the pitch. There was major water damage to the floor boards in the club house, which John and his colleague completely replaced, and made as good as new.

The Committee would like to thank everyone involved in keeping the pitch maintained and in such good condition, so that everyone can enjoy it.
