BANDON DEVELOPMENT

In March 2024 the news broke that Cork County was offically without the 400m all weather track with the sudden closure of the Mardyke. It was now more important than ever that Bandon complete the development as soon as possible. On March 28th we welcomed M.E.P Sean Kelly, Sen Tim Lombard and Ger Seaman to the development site to show our progress and the need to get the project completed this year!
