9 photos of the new GAA training facility in Portadown, Co Armagh

As work starts on the new £10m state of the art GAA training facility in Portadown, we have a sneak peek of what the new grounds will look like.

Photos sent to us by Armagh GAA show some of the work that has already started. Also there are images, constructed by the architect McCreanor Company Architects in Craigavon, which show what the new facility will look like when it is finished.

There are high hopes that two of the pitches and the gym will be opened by Winter. Work is to start on the gym in March/April this year. The facility will include four pitches and a bubble dome as well as the gym and changing facilities.

Chairperson of Armagh GAA, Paul McArdle, said: “This marks a historic moment for Armagh GAA and we are thrilled to see the commencement of this ambitious project. This will be game-changing for our players, teams, and coaches in their preparation to play and perform at the highest level.
