Jaysus whats with all the sentimentality it won't be gone for at least another 3 years. Clane of the early 90s were brilliant to watch though, lost a county minor final (I was marking Eddie McCormack and the fecker scored 7 points including the winner) and a Senior B final but did manage to win a minor hurling title, amazing how all those jockeys from Tipp look like 16 year olds  :D

Some more info for you..

The site is free under the new Newbridge Development plan and will be housed within the new Citygate development at Old Connell, Naas end of the town less than 1/2 a mile from the nearest pub.  The following was robbed from the Kildare GAA site

The Games Devleopment presentation was in 2 sections. The Hurling Acadamey (which started last April) and the Football Acadamey (starting in Jan 07). It really was good to hear about the work that has gone into underage hurling so far. And the plans for football is equally as good. All the info logged from the Development Squad seissions is to be logged to monitor improvements.
There is provisions at the moment for 7000 seats (which can be increased) and covered terracing for another 12000. I think some of the remainder will be uncovered.

Lynchboy, makes two of us!!!
Good man Timmy,
I dont think the Cloughs are too fond of myself of brothers any more after leaving 14 years ago.

Its a long story, but they only have themselves to blame (well mostly, greed and ambition fueled the rest for us)

I still watch the Cloughs results and checked out their website.

Dinny,
any plans for buying in some new players !


seriously the plans sound good. A young Kildare squad will hopefully benefit from this.
Need Paidi to take them onwards I'd say

Anyone but JC at least the squad don't have the shadow of Glen Ryan over them.....

To be honest the players are there, the clubs are regularly contesting Leinster Club Finals, Sarsfields, Towers and now the Moors, the infrastructures are being put in place but we just need to get the management structure right....A Liam Kearns or a Luke Dempsey would have been perfect..

Lilywhites plan new 25,000-capacity stadium - from www.setanta.com

The Kildare county board has outlined its plans to move its county ground to a new purpose built 25,000-capacity stadium.

The Lilywhites will move from St Conleth's Park to a new venue with state-of-the-art dressing rooms, car park and a training pitch.

There are provisional plans for 7,000 seats, a 12,000-capacity covered terrace and an uncovered terrace that will hold 6,000 people, however the number of seats may even be increased.

A presentation on the new complex took place at the Hotel Kadeen in Newbridge on Tuesday night.

The horseshoe shaped design is based on the Liberty Stadium in Swansea, Wales, which is home to the Ospreys rugby team and soccer outfit Swansea City.

A new site will be handed over to Kildare chiefs free of charge under the Newbridge Development plan. It will be located within the new Citygate development at Old Connell, is on the Naas side of Newbridge.

The Liberty Stadium cost STG27 million to build and the new Kildare ground is estimated to be ready for use in two years time.

St Conleth's Park, a six-acre site, is expected to fetch around EUR25 million.

Looks good, also glad to see they havent gone totally crazy with the capacity. [although the liberty stadium looks big]

The Hurling academy started before the football? Good stuff!

There's a nice stand just after the kildare on the dublin to cork train, who's is that?
