4G pitch of dreams
PST Sport are proud to have been selected as the preferred contractor for the construction of a full size synthetic GAA pitch for St Vincent’s GAA at their home grounds just off the Malahide Road in Marino.
Site development works included full groundworks, drainage and base construction. Phase 2 followed with the installation of 12,000 sq/m Superb artificial grass carpet with shock pad. Ancillary works included the supply and install of sports fencing and ball stop netting. Despite challenging weather conditions, including some very strong winds at times, there was very little delay.

High performance synthetic turf system
The surface installed at St Vincent’s GAA is the latest in synthetic turf technology and certified for GAA at all levels. Our 60mm two-fibre Superb carpet is incredibly durable, extremely resilient yet soft to touch.
While the pitch surface is unique, works below ground are equally as important and can add significantly to the lifespan of a pitch. A well built base is critical for any 4G pitch construction project and will ensure your pitch plays better and lasts longer. The subbase layers of firmly compacted stone and blinding optimize drainage and increase stability. The rubber infill enhances performance and gives a better grip for foot/surface interaction. Underneath the grass carpet the shock pad is designed to take the hardness out of high-impact situations and reduce the risk of injury.
The surface was independently tested at various stages of construction and on pitch completion to ensure the new surface complies with the strict performance guidelines set down by the GAA.
Here’s what PST Sport’s Business Development Manager, Kieran Donaghy had to say:
“We are delighted that one of the country’s top GAA clubs chose PST Sport to deliver this world-class facility. The club wanted something durable with a soft feel to it. The new pitch looks superb. It will be a fantastic asset to the club and will allow for a significant increase in coaching and playing hours.”
