New Era for Firies National School

Firies National School all weather pitch

The excitement at Firies National School was unmistakable this week as the new term marked the opening of the school’s brand new state-of-the-art 3G pitch. After months of careful planning, the 60m x 40m community all-weather pitch with high performance artificial grass carpet on a prefabricated shock pad system, surrounded by rebound fencing and concrete footpath was handed over to Principal, Claire Doyle.

Works on the much-anticipated facility on the grounds of Firies NS, in the heart of Co. Kerry, completed last week ahead of the school’s reopening this week.

Clubs and community groups from Firies and beyond will get to play and train year round on this much needed facility. The new pitch will not only benefit physical health but their psychological and emotional well being too.

Well done to our Project Manager, Paul O’Connor and all the PST Sport team for another fantastic job!

Craik Park Gets a Makeover

Craik Park, Morpeth - 3G pitch construction

Last week we broke ground at Morpeth Town AFC’s Craik Park replacing the existing natural grass field with a world-class 7800 sq/m 3G pitch. Works will include installing a new drainage system, stone subbase and dynamic stone layer. The new pitch will benefit from a state-of-the-art Superb 45 surface with EPDM premium pitch infill and new spectator fencing.

The Most Advanced Synthetic Turf System

Superb 45 is a heavy weight premier synthetic football surface offering superior play characteristics, as close to a high-quality natural turf pitch as possible.

Superb is manufactured using the C8 polymer, the market leading yarn in artificial sports grass worldwide. C8 is a purer polymer making the fibres extremely soft to touch yet incredibly durable. The unique diamond shaped Superb fibre is exceptionally resilient allowing the blades of grass to stay standing, giving a better ball roll and an overall enhanced player experience.

This significant development is part of Morpeth Town FC’s multi-phase plan to improve club facilities by creating a artificial turf pitch for the squad to train on as well as providing the 29 junior sides at The Highwaymen with a purpose built, all-weather training facility.

Morpeth Town FC - Converting Craik Park to 3G pitch

Lower Maintenance Costs, Enhanced Durability & Increase in Overall Playing Hours

At PST Sport we know and understand the positive impact a synthetic surface can have on any club in terms of lower maintenance and longer playing hours. Our artificial pitches play safely and consistently in just about any weather conditions.

PST Sport’s range of accredited surfaces will improve revenue streams as clubs can deliver a number of programs for the whole community on the new surface. This increased use will allow clubs to grow in numbers (members) and revenue.


What PST Sport Deliver

PST Sport design, construct and install the most technologically advanced artificial grass pitches, both green field sites and re-turfing older pitches. We deliver world-class sports surfaces for clubs, schools and universities allowing players to perform to the highest level all year round.

All Weather Pitch Development Project at Sarsfields Hurling Club, Co. Cork

Sarsfields Hurling Club all weather pitch development

PST Sport is delighted to be working with Sarsfields GAA in East Cork delivering a brand new state-of-the-art artificial grass facility. The project which is due for completion before the end of 2019 will see the existing all-weather pitch resurfaced with 4,500 sq/m Superb high-performance artificial grass carpet. Ancillary works will include new fencing and kerbing as well as carrying out repairs to the existing netting.

A second part of the project will be the installation of a hurling wall positioned at the end of the pitch. On the other side of the wall will be an additional floodlit hurling skills area, fully carpeted and enclosed. This will ensure hurling sessions will be carried out in a safe and secure environment with traffic flowing freely through the complex. Works to include drainage and stone base, carpet installation, kerbing, fencing and netting. While the old hurling wall will remain and can still be used, the redesign area will utilise this wall for parking, creating 30 additional parking spaces.

Developed in association with our artificial grass partner CCGrass, Superb is the very latest in synthetic turf technology. The surface is extremely durable, resilient, soft to touch, and designed with maximum player safety and optimum performance in mind. The polymer used in Superb is stronger, softer and more resilient than used in other fibres, which helps create a great playing surface. All CCGrass pitches are heavily tested, before and after installation, ensuring Sarsfields GAA has the best possible synthetic turf pitch.
